Have so many fond memories of Aunt Dora and Uncle Alvie as a niece growing up. Came often to visit and catch up with the family. Missing all the Knox family now as Aunt Dora was the last of the in-law family to past. Linda and Wanda my thoughts and prayers to all the family's on your mom's passing.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I have known Dora all my life. We exchanged Christmas cards until this past Christmas. We have lost so many of our family in the last few years with the deaths of my mom, both Knox (Knoch) brothers, Bonnie, Ricky, and now Dora. Again, Linda, I am praying for you and the rest of the family and friends.
