Hanging around with the Kaple family was not complete unless you saw "Satch" cutting the grass or washing his favorite vehicle at the time. These jobs were done with meticulous care every time. Satch was so committed to doing his best. May your strong faith and the love of family and friends be of comfort to you at this time. God Bless.
Dorothy and Family our sincere sympathy in the passing of Mike. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
