Mrs. Knapp, Sue & Shelley, On behalf of my siblings we extend our condolences on the death of Mr. Knapp. Most of us have delivered papers to your house and remember his beautiful garden and sense of humour! In later years, as I took Mom to church we would run into you both and have a quick hello on your walk from Marion Place. We will pray for you and for him.
