    My mother (Minnie Knight Lundwall–sister to Cornell), my sister (Florence Lundwall Wolters), and I, visited Cornell and his family when I was just a young boy. Jerry was more my age and we had a great time together. Jack and Joyce were older and mighty handsome and beautiful. That was the only time beside seeing them again at my grandparents, John M. and Florence Knight’s 50th wedding anniversary in Salt Lake City at the New House Hotel. I have many fond memories of Uncle Cornell whenever he visited us while my mother and sister and I lived with my grandparents, John M. and Florence Knight on 14th East in Salt Lake City. My thoughts and prayers of thanksgiving continue for having such a wonderful uncle as Cornell and for the beautiful family he had. I look forward to a coming reunion where we shall all see and love each other again in the youth we all once knew.
