I've not had communication in a very long while but I am saddened to hear of "Mr. Knickle's" passing. I remember him as a very handsome gentlemen and as someone who was kind to me and my family. I'm thankful for the many drives he provided to us in my earlier years, and I can still fondly recall occasional visits at his home. I'm very sorry for your loss and I am thinking of all of you - his family - at this sad time.
