From the Back roads of Mt Palomar to the heat of El centro and at California Speedway
Vince always said drink your Water, Stay Hydrated and Cecilia can back me up on that,
and everyone who knew Vince in PCA
the time we had coming home to a Street full of Porsche's and a Firetruck when he got the Fire Firemen to take Marlee up the stairs after she had her both knees done and Cecillia stayed 3 days to make sure she did everything right.
so many Memories, Skips days when Vince was there, he was there for so many People.
How thankful I am that Vince Knauf shared a part of his life with me. He will always be a part in our hearts.

Vince was my hero, along with his beautiful, funny, fabulous wife, Cecelia! We watched the little, tiny piranhas outgrow their tank! We stood in awe as Vince pulled out his Doc bag & fixed up a split chin at the track. We laughed together over the silliest things all dressed up in costumes for a party. Vince loved life! He loved Cecelia, the children, the grandchildren & he loved us - all of us - warts & all - & we all loved Vince. God has a special place in Heaven for his children that spend their lives giving so much of themselves to heal & help others. My father passed a month ago - last week he met the best emergency doctor to pass through the Golden Gates. Two great men in the presence of the Greatest! How thankful I am that Vince Knauf shared a part of his very special life with me. He will always be in our hearts. -M-
