Knute and Family, We are so sorry for your loss. I met your Dad many years ago when they lived outside of Austin. He seemed like a good man and must have been based on the wonderful job he and your mother did at raising their family. I'm sure he will be dearly missed. I hope you find peace in the fact that he is now at rest and reunited with you mom. Our thoughts are with all of you. Take care. Suzanne, Robin and Christopher

Knute and all, I just want to say how sorry I am about the loss of your father, George. I have only had the pleasure of his company a few times over the years, but truly appreciated his sense of humor and spunk. I am sure you all have fond memories that will carry you through these difficult times. And the thought of him being at home now with Gloria and the Lord must be comforting. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
