Not sure what to say?

I remember so well when the Lego carvings and minifigures were very popular. I am truly grateful to Mr. Knudsen for bringing so much joy into the lives of households both young and old. May the peace of God reside with this family during your sadness.

My deepest sympathy is with Knudsen family and friends. May the God of All Comfort provide the comfort needed during this time of grief and sorrow.

My condolences to the Knudsen family for your loss. I loved playing with Legos as did millions of others. Your imagination could take flight but, with just one little Lego mini figure, it just brought the whole thing together. I still love playing with my second generation children, what fun!

Mr. Knudsen will be remembered for his outstanding work with LEGO. Please accept my sincere condolences.

Our children just love LEGO. Truly appreciate his brilliance. We pray that God continues to strengthen and comfort the family during this extremely difficult time.

Your creation has helped me play throughout life, helping me escape the daily grind, while whisking away negative thoughts and the general callousness of life. In doing so you kept me going. I owe you my life, as with out the ability to build, create and play I would have given up a long time ago.
You will be missed for sure, but treasured in every set I build, or world I create. ❤

My love and prayers to your family.

My condolences to the family and may God give you comfort at this most trying time.

My condolences to the family of Jens Nygaard Knudsen, I am very sorry for your loss. I have loved Legos all my life, passed that down to my son and he to his son. May the God of comfort be with all of you as you mourn.

My condolences.
