Mr. Knight was a humble and kind man. He truly strived to live his life as a Godly man. He and his wife and girls will always have a place in my heart. I love you you all.

Tom & I were so sorry to hear about Cuy! We had so much respect for him and Elaine! Their godliness, dedication, & faithfulness to God, church, and their 3 daughters was contagious. Cuy, a quiet & gentle man, spent time with us in pre-marital financial counseling in ‘88; he was very wise and such a good steward of what God had given him. May the God of all comfort be with the family at this time!

I praise God for both Cuy and Elaine. Their humility, servants hearts, kindness, sweet spirit, and desire to put Christ first in their lives was so evident. They raised three Godly girls,Jill, Joan, and Joy, the latter who I am blessed to have for a daughter-in-love. May Cuy and Elaine's influence be forever upon their children and grandchildren that they all will be faithful to always put Christ first.

So sorry to hear of Cuys' passing, a dear life long friend.. Spent many a night in his home when were in school. A quiet, gentle guy, the same every time you saw him.
When Jill called me, I was so humbled and appreciative to know that Cuy wanted me to be notified.
I'll miss his calls and the opportunity to visit when he came down, but I know he would not want to return to this earth after what I know he saw Sunday when he walked thru those gates to be reunited with Elaine and the other family members who've gone on.
Rest in peace, my brother, you were my best friend to the end!
