Hi Matt! You are my cousin. My dad was Walter Bappe, Art's brother. Don't know if you remember your dad bringing you to our house to see "Uncle Walt"& "Aunt Irene". I remember you when you were little of course. Good to know there's some Bappe's keeping in touch, huh?
My married (now divorced) name is Holmes. My sister Rita Holmes (no connection in the Holmes part - just coincidence - isn't that funny?) Her and her family, sons, daughter, grandchildren all live in St. Paul. Maybe you've heard from her. My brother Steve (chiropractor in Hastings) lives in Apple Valley. So there are quite a few of the Bappe clan living in the twin city area.
