Messages of Condolence

  1. Dawn Lichter and Steve Crabtree condolence:

    Mrs. Knapp was a giving woman who we knew for too short a time. I wish her family the best during this time of loss.

    The best memories I have were on moving day to their “digs” in Brookfield. George was so funny and “Ginge” was great at keeping him on track. Even when we asked them to marry us the next weekend in their backyard.

    A great lady that will be truly missed.

  2. Carl Gurnicz condolence:

    My sincere condolences to the Knapp Family. I came here not knowing Virginia has passed, but to re-visit a obituary of a loved one. George and Virginia always put other peoples interest at the head of the line. And tonight, I am living proof of that. Rest in Peace Virginia and say Hello to George for me.
    Always Carl
