    Dear Mrs. Knight and family: My heart goes out to you in Mr. Knight's passing. We at Dr. Karras's office will miss his smiling face, his caring heart and his good humour. He loved the Lord and loved his family. There is no doubt where he is right now, sitting there probably quoting scripture to the angels! He knew his Bible, and that was what was one of the wonders about him, at his age, that he could recall all of the scriptures! I will miss him, and I know the other's will too! I hope that you will call us if there is anything we can do for any of you. Please give Mrs. Knight a hug for me! With deepest sympathy, Sheila Youngblood Dr. Karras's nurse
