This voice from the far distant past wants to tell you how very sad it was to hear of your wonderful Mother's passing. There was no finer person, neighbor or friend who showed more compassion, intelligence or class than our Margie Lee. May she rest in eternal peace!

I knew Mrs. Knapp for many years, from the time I first came to Charleston. She was one of the first clients in my salon and remained one for a long time. Though I have seen her less often in recent years, she has remained very special to me. She was a kind, wonderful, elegant lady. My sympathy goes out to all of you, her family.
