Papa (Knocker), was the best grandfather we could have ever asked for. We were truly blessed to have him and all that he put up with from us:-)
Hard to find a better man, he was the best and I will miss him! Sherry

Love you forever and ever Papa. You really were the absolute best in the world. Wish I could tell you that one more time.

Knocker was one fine Gentleman. I remember when we were kids growing up. He would take the time and play ball with us at the old Sullivan Farm in Kersey. He always took the time and had great patience with us. He and Lil were constant companions of my Mother and Father. You are in my prayers.

If I had 3 wishes, I would wish that I could make you “Grumpy” one more time by stealing one of your peanut butter cookies. I would wish that my children would be able to spend more time with you. And I would wish that I could have one more crack at getting that Thanksgiving roast right so that you would enjoy it. Love you!
