Kate was the sweetest person I know
and met at Waggoners UM Church. She was always smiling and giving hugs.
She will be deeply missed!!!!!

Hi Kitty,
You will be missed. I will always remember that smile. Also, I always looked forward to my birthday call from my big sister in Carlisle, wishing me a Happy Birthday and inquiring about how things were on my side of the mountain. I still have fond memories of the Kapp Christmas trip to the Quigley's home on Pitt Street and walking to the Square and waiting for Santa Claus!!! I will cherish this event forever.
I love you!!

James Edward Kapp
