To the Knight family as a friend of María I am sending my sincere condolences and prayers. I did not personally know Mr Knight but I knew his sisters and my husband knew him well and at times mentioned his name to me. That’s why when I saw his name in the obituary it rang a bell with me and I again was sadden since on the same day he passed my own sister passed. 2020 has been a year of trying times and we should all pray for one another. Love and peace to the family.
