    I am so sorry for your loss , Loosing a loved one is traumatic and very difficult. However the Bible says at Rev. 21:4 - “ And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” May the God who gives us this comfort be with the family at this time.

    Knowing Mrs Kaplan the past five years was wonderful. She was always excited when you spoke with her and loved being a part of the Wilmington area. We will say a prayer for her and will truly miss her.
