Edward Knight II

Me-Ma was one of a kind. She took the brunt of many a joke, prank, or any type of shenanigans. From lighting fireworks under her chair to giving her phony lottery scratch offs, she endured it all, but she loved it. It always made her laugh. I spent many afternoons over on John Boy Creek Rd with the two of them. We played Scrabble mostly. It wasn’t the Scrabble that I’ll remember most, just sitting at the table with them, taking to them, and just enjoying them. Those days will live on in my mind forever. So I must say, “See you later, Me-Ma(and Pop-Pops).” I love you both. Oh yeah, “xi” and “xu” are acceptable words now. So look for that triple letter!!
