    Jennifer & Family,
    We are very sadden by.Knott’s passing. He will be missed by all who knew him. He was a pleasure to sit and talk with. I’m sure you know how much our entire family loved Knott, as well as your Mother and the entire family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Remember that God is always with you. Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, They will be comforted.” You honored him well with your love and special care. Take comfort in all your wonderful memories.
