Dad is gone

Dear readers,

My name is Robert Christopher Knight, and I am proud to be the son of Robert Rankin Knight. And I have something to say to everyone.

No one could have been blessed with a father as amazing as Dad. From him I learned resolve, resilience, humbleness, the strength to always do what is right, the value of education, the persistence to achieve no matter where one is in life, the enjoyment of creativity, loving and cherish others especially those closest to you, and more than anything else a quiet and sincere devotion to God.

I could not have been blessed with a better father.

Robert Rankin Knight went Home this morning at 1:41 a.m.

Chris,

You have my most sincere and heartfelt condolences. For what it's worth, I lost my father a few years ago (in his mid 60's - much too young) so I can understand the pain and heartache you're experiencing. I pray that you know and feel Christ's peace, even in this difficult time.

I'd like to share this with you - when my father died, I had an imagination/vision of him in Christ's presence, stunned and amazed by what he was experiencing, and I realized that I didn't need to be sad for him at all. He was where he had always wanted to be. And I further realized I was just sad for myself and my family, because we were going to miss him so incredibly much.

That was twenty years ago (+), and I still miss him, but I know I'll see him again. Just as you'll see your Dad again.

Know that you are in my prayers, Chris.
