Judy and Henry Knight - May 4, 2023

Please accept our sincere condolences. Henry and I thought your parents were wonderful. We were sorry to hear of Shirley's passing. We met at St. Peter's Church twenty years ago. Bob and Shirley switched to Saint John's Church, and we stayed friends. It was always a joy to see them again around the town. Of course we stopped for a chat and came away happier for having had a short visit with them. She must have missed Bob so much. May you be comforted in your sorrow. Judy and Henry Knight
