RIP brother, you are missed, love you forever
I love you dad. Sitting here thinking about you. I know your with me everywhere. You mean the world to me, and you are greatly missed. I will love you forever, and beyond. You got to see me have a son, named after us. As you would say “The legend continues”, and I will make sure mom is always taken care of. I love you dad. We will meet every night in my dreams. Allen said he misses you, you were like his second father. And Chris, and Jen. I Love you dad. Can’t wait to see you on the other side. Love always, and forever. Never forgotten, Your son Roland Vaughn Scott Knibbs III XOXOXO
To my Dad,
Thank you for a wonderful childhood. Thank you for being a “Mom” and “Dad” to me. Thank you for your love, wisdom, advice and ecouragement. You had enormous strength and that showed me that anything is possible in life. I love you Dad, always and forever.
Xoxo Your daughter Monique
First of all, I want to thank you for raising the best friend I’ve ever had, your daughter Monique! Vaughn, you were a very funny man! Always making us kids laugh when we were younger. Always looking out for us the way you did. I feel like we had a bit of a special relationship, I love you too Vaughn! You will be sorely missed! Love Angelika. Condolences to the family, xo
Monique I am so very sorry for your loss. Sending lots of love and hugs to you and your family xoxo
To Vaughn and Judy and all your extended family. Eddie and I (Julie) were very good friends of your Mom and Dad in the very early years. We shared many a good time together beginning with Judy in grade school and Vaughn in high school. He loved Roy Orbison and wanted to be him I think. Judy and his two girls were his world when we knew him. Judy was one of my best friends in grade school and Vaughn, in turn, became a good friend of ours. Our condolences to you and your extended family. Take Care. Julie and Eddie Bodden.
