Dear Capretz family
Back in 1981 I had the chance to stay several months with you and your family at 207 Evening Cyn. Rd. in Corona del Mar as a young Au Pair girl from Switzerland. Almost forty years ago, I still have very good memories of these months, spending a lot of time especially with little Tommy, but also Nicole of course.
I just had to grab after the few photos I have from that time. Well in my memory is Mr. Capretz's belly laugh and his sense of humor. Also I remember well when we met years later in Bad Ragaz in Switzerland.
I was deeply saddened by the news of Mr. Capretz passing and I would like to send you my heartfelt condolences to all of you.
Thinking about you and wishing you comfort and peace.
Sonja Durand-Peter, Switzerland

We just now found out about the passing of Don's brother, James Capretz. We extend our deepest sympathy to his and Don's family for your loss. Don has been our trusted lawyer since the 70's and although we have only met James once while he was visiting Don in Louisiana we feel like we knew him because Don would always speak about him. We are so sorry for your loss and will keep y'all in our prayers. With deepest sympathy, Jim & Diane Whittington and Family
