I am sorry to be so late in sending my condolences to you all. Karl was a cousin on my dad’s (Jack Knoll) side. Although I hadn’t seen your dad in many years, I do remember that it was at Aunt Frieda’s 90th birthday party. His sense of humor stands out and I still smile when I remember seeing him there. He was quick witted and funny. I wish you all well and know that you have countless good memories of your dad to keep his spirit alive. My most sincere condolences. Sincerely, Su
