Pap Harry was a kind, gentle soul loved by so many, I enjoyed the video tribute, what wonderful memories for the Knight family. He always had a beautiful smile on his face. When he leaves this world we all know what a legacy he left, he touched the hearts of everyone who had the honor of knowing him. You could see it in his smile how much he loved his family. they have so much to be proud of. So many wonderful memories to carry on. I pray for all of his loved ones that God will give them strength to carry on and live their lives like Pap Harry did. RIP Pap Harry!!

Over the years, we have enjoyed seeing pictures of Uncle Harry on Facebook. His sweet smile reminds us of his brother, Joe (my father). It is comforting to know that Uncle Harry has been reunited with all of his loved ones that were waiting in Heaven. From the stories that I’ve heard and from the pictures I’ve seen, Uncle Harry has been surrounded by love and will be missed by many…

A Gentleman in Every Way – I so remember him dancing to “Grandpa, Tell Me About the Good Ol’ Days” with each of his Granddaughters at (who knows what wedding or occasion) – The look of pride and happiness on his face said it all! Very sad for all the Knights.
