Knoxie was one Beautiful Lady inside and out. My Husband and I loved Knoxie. We had so many many good times together in Illinois.
So sad to hear of her passing.

Steve, Debbie and Kenny, my deepest condolences to you and the rest of the family. She was such a pretty woman. She had a wonderful smile and I loved her laugh. I’m thankful she’s home and at peace. I have many great memories, but one of my favorite memories was when she would sing along with my Uncle Harold playing “Wabash Cannonball” on his harmonica. May you cherish and take comfort in the many years of love and laughter. Maybe there’s some heavenly singing going on with Uncle Harold!💕 My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Love,

Nancy
