To the Kaple family, My condolences to you on the loss of your mother and grandmother. I was a classmate of Mike’s from 6th grade thru graduation and worked with Mark for a short time. I last spoke to your mother while she was helping in the kitchen at my father’s funeral reception in 1992. May your strong faith and the love of family and friends be of comfort to you at this difficult time.
