To the Graper Framily...He was a good man, admired by many...I remember the first time I saw him...I was in kindergarten and couldn't understand why he would want to meet me...My parents along with the school board and others made it possible for me to attend public school...Having not had that chance...who knows how life would have turned out...but all I know is that with Mr. Graper's help, I was given that chance for which I am eternally grateful. My Mom also sends her sympathies to the family.

Mr. Graper, You are surely missed. You were a wonderful six grade teacher for me in 1960-61. One of the few that didnt have to rant and rave to keep class attention. To this day I think of your class and smile. Take care ole friend you enriched many lives.

Mr. Graper was mine, as well as my little brothers principal at MacArthur Elementary School in Cedar Lake, IN. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family for their loss. He was a wonderful man with a wonderful heart.

I have wonderful memories of this awesome man and educator starting with my work at school system in 70's to going out to the farm to purchase the annual Christmas goose he raised. He was a special man who had such impact on so many children going through his doors.
