I was saddened to learn of Mrs.Rapps passing. I too had the pleasure of having this wonderful person as my kindergarten teacher. My mother will be thanking her personally for taking me off her hands during the day. While I no doubt raised some heck in the early days of life. Thank you Mrs. Rapp. I hope your dancing.

I am deeply saddened by the passing of my dear Mrs. Rapp.  She was my kindergarten teacher.  I remember that we had tins of crayons and there were never enough flesh colored crayons for everyone in class, but she made sure we shared.  I remember her tying my shoes.  I remember waking up after nap time, class was already in session, and she just quietly welcomed me to my table and kept teaching. I was lucky enough to have her aquaintance well in to my adult years.  She will be missed and I will hold fond memories close in my heart.
