1: In memory of Edward Russell Knoll Feb 2, 1927 - Sept 16, 2013 The story behind this book: Anyone who knew my dad knew that he wasn’t a man to talk much about himself — he liked to ask questions. So for his 77th birthday in February 2004, I gave him a journal titled “A Father’s Legacy.” Each of the pages inside had a question printed at the top and a blank area below for his response. I thought this would be a good way for me to get to know more about my father. He returned the journal to me on my birthday in August that same year. His entries confirmed what I always sensed about my dad: that he was a man of character and integrity; he lived by a very simple moral code that served him well. I rediscovered his subtle sense of humor, patience, and unconditional love. I also learned that he had more of a wild streak than I thought. In the end, he accomplished most of what he set out to do, including, as he wrote in the journal, living “to see ten more years - that would make me 87.” In honor of my dad’s memory, I’ve put together a collection of his words, in hopes that you’ll share in the sentiment that—to quote the words of a dear family member—”he was a sincere and kind man with a heart of gold, a gentle spirit and sweet nature.” Meredith Knoll Duncan, 2014
