  4. Grampa Kaul was the smartest man in every way. He loved me as a Grandchild of his own, (even though we’re not blood-related), for my entire life. His words of wisdom and words of hilarities lit up my life. He was an infinite blessing to have in my life. I will love him forever and always, and his legacy will never cease to live on. My love and heart goes out to My Auntie Kaul, her siblings, Gramma Kaul, and to all others who will surely miss him dearly. I am full of joy that he is in a place of permanent peace, joy, and everything wonderful beyond this world that we know.

    Always and Forever,

    Bethy Lucic

  5. So sorry to learn of Mr. Kaul’s passing. A friend (Bill Gorey) and I worked for him at the greenhouse when we were teenagers, during the summer of 1967. It was one of the first real jobs we had, and we learned a lot about hard work from Mr. Kaul. He was one of the hardest working men I ever met. Condolences to his wife and children.

  6. Betty and family, we are saddened to hear Jim has passed away. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

  7. To one of the smartest and wisest men I know. You were a blessing to
    my family….especially my daughters. Your kindness and care were only matched by my own parents. Your knowledge of the world was amazing and brilliant to me. My prayers and blessings go out to Mrs. Kaul who always had kind words and advice for me. Just an amazing
    Lady and mom. Aunt Karen, my heart goes out to you in so many ways. You and your parents have always been there for my family with Love and care. You are our Joy and blessing. Thank you. Your Dad was always so proud of you. May you have peace and know that your father is with our Lord and enjoying his eternal heaven now. May your family find comfort in all the prayers and memories for your father. If you need anything…just call. Rest in peace Mr. Kaul….you left us all with the privilege of being in our lives. Love Gary Lucic

  8. Karen … I am saddened by the news of losing your dad. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

  9. I remember my mom’s “cousin Jim” as a warm person. Beautiful photo of him in the obituary. My sympathy to Betty and the family.

  10. Jim I am not sure where to start. You were always such a strong, kind, and generous man. You were like a father to me, you loved me like a daughter. So many times it would just be the two of us, and you would tell me I was like a daughter to you, and how much you loved me, I always felt that love because it was from your heart, your love meant the world to me. I truly believe you always knew the strong love I had for you. We shared a lot of wonderful times, so many memories which I will always keep close to my heart. I feel truly blessed to have known such a special man. We always were able to tease each other, and have fun with each other. Your smile will always stay with me. You fought for so long to stay with all of us, now God will take care of you. Your finally at peace. Your in my heart always and forever. I will miss you so very much!

    Betty I am so sorry for your loss. Seeing the two of you together for so many years, what a beautiful and wonderful example of what a marriage should be. He always told me he was the lucky one to have you, you were his better half. You could see how much he loved you when he talked about you.Thank you for sharing your husband with me, I adored him so very much. I love you very much, and hope you know if you ever need any thing I am always around for you. Your a very special and strong women, and I am very blessed to have you in my life. I would do anything for you!

    To my best friend, I am so sorry for the loss of you dad. I know what he meant to you, but never forget what you meant to him. He told me so many times how much he loved you, and how proud he was of you. You are your fathers daughter. He also told me how thankful he was for all you have done for him and your mother over the years. He will be in your heart forever.

  11. Dear Betty – it is with great sadness that I learned of Jim’s passing. I am unable to attend the service, but my thoughts are with you. My visit to you and Jim last year in Texas will always be a wonderful memory.

    Love – Joy
