Ken, you and I made it through everything but this and I still hurt and feel as if I am not a whole person without you. I know I never will be again until we are together again. Loving you was easy. I still have trouble with not feeling your arms around me or kissing me and telling me you love me. The only thing that keeps me alive now, is our sons and grandchildren and the newest addition Amelia our great grandchild that calls to you and talks to you. She's 3 now and I told her she would be the Apple of your eye. She says you are with us. What a blessing she is. Sometimes, Mike sounds just like you. He acts like you a lot too. Gene talks about you a bit. Especially how you would call and ask if it's snowing up there. I left many letters at your resting place but they are all gone now. Mike set up a place for me in his yard with the temporary stone. It's very nice and I like to go there to talk to you. I will love you through eternity until we are together again. YOUR WIFE FOREVER. HAZEL DUPLER!,

From the break crew at work, we're gonna miss you Kenny! We were just discussing getting you a schedule for my son's baseball team ... I remember you telling me about when you coached and all these years later your boys still call you coach, that says something fom one coach to another. I'll always remember when you got your scooter and how you flew around the halls and outside like some gleefull kid. Guess you were always a big kid at heart. I'm gonna miss your big-brother advice and talking stuff, we crammed in a lot of fun in 15 minutes. The break crew will remember how fascinated you were with the birds out back and how we'd all carry on and laugh. You brought some joy to others lives and in the end of it all that says something about you my friend. I'll be looking up see you weekdays at 3:15 and thinking wondering what you're doin. Peace be with you.

To Hazel, Sharon, Helen and the remainder of your entire family: my thoughts and prayers are with you now at this most difficult time. As difficult as it is to say goodbye, be strengthened by the memories that you carry with you in your heart. These will see you through these most difficult times. Know also that Ken is now reunited with his mother Helen and all the other members of the family that have gone on before. God's peace be with you all.

Hazel, Gene and Mike I trust you know just how blessed you are to have had a man like Ken as a Husband and Father...a man shows who he is by what he does with what he life was influenced by Ken because he made me feel so special when I was coaching his children...I know he left us better than when he found us being in our lives...GOD BLESS KEN

Hazel and the entire Dupler family. I am truly sorry that you have lost Ken. He was such a great and caring person. He was always smiling. He and the family were great neighbors way back when we all lived on Market street. May the memories you have created of Ken throughout the years get you through this sad time and remain in your hearts and minds forever.

Joshua Wolfe and Family!
