For over 65 years I saw the picture of a beautiful young woman kneeling with my Mom, Jenny Markward Rupert, and my brother, Larry and me in around 1945. Last year at Mass in St. Charles Church in Lima this woman tapped me on the shoulder and told me she was Jane Kimmet Ebbeskotte from that 1945 picture. Thank God for this wonderful woman and her family!! Hip surgery prevents me from the funeral and visitation. Bless you all! Dan Rupert
