To the Dane Rapp Family,
My sincere condolences and my prayers of comfort to you all. I started at Grace Church in the late 60’s and knew your Dad very well as all of his family. I admired your dad for all the work he did in our kitchen at church. That was “his” kitchen and I always looked forward to the delicious sweet treats he would make for our church.  I know someday we will meet again. God bless you all and may God give you the comfort and the strength as you go thru this sad time in your life. The Heavens has just called another Angel home!!
