I was saddened to hear of the passing of Fred Ropkey. I am the chaplain of the Indiana Veterans' Home in West Lafayette. I was able to accompany some of our residents on a visit to the Ropkey Armory Museum with the DAV (Disabled American Veterans). What a great experience. Fred and Lani were so passionate about the museum and US military history. They were so kind to our veterans. I enjoyed meeting Fred, and I send my deepest sympathies to Lani. May the Lord bring you comfort and peace in this difficult time.
