What a wonderful man! Dr. Capouya was our dentist for many years and
also our good friend. Years ago, Dr. and Mrs. Capouya, Lynn, Eli and Janice
would come to our farm for the children to ride the horses. Mrs. Capouya
always brought delicious home made brownies for all to enjoy! I shall remember each one of you in my prayers as you will grieve for him. I will
always keep good memories of the Capouya Family as being a very sweet,
lovable and caring family. May God bless and keep you all in His care.
Love,Bobbie B. Williams. Husband: James Harmon Williams
