Phoebe and family, I am so blessed to have been part of the family. For the short time we had together David's family was always so warm and welcoming. Running into your kids as adults has been another blessing. You've instilled wonderful character in your children. I hope they continue to carry your examples on to their grandchildren. Still praying for ENTIRE Knight family; and will continue. Love through our God, ReGina

I met David when he and Pheobe started dating. I saw that David was kind and gentle. He was a joy to be around. I'm glad he came into my life, if only for a short while, years ago.

I have many good memories of David coming over to meet Carroll for work or a hunting day trip. He always had a smile and something positive and nice to say. Also a great sense of humor. Phoebe , I remember when you and David started dating ! Time passes so quickly ! You have had an amazing journey together here on Earth...I pray you find comfort knowing he is in the presence of Our Lord . And that when our time comes to leave this world , we will see our loved ones again...God bless you all.

To the Knight brothers, and Eleanor Ruth:

I am saddened to hear about David's health problems resulting in his death.
He and Pheobe and the kids were always my favorites... they always were friendly to me and to Randy, Bobby and Willy.
Pheobe, as a woman who has also suffered through losses, my heart goes out to you. I will keep you and the girls and Allen in my thoughts and prayers.
David was a fine father and husband and brother-in-law. I know his suffering is over, and he now is in Heaven...
God bless you all.
Love, LaVerne
