We will love and miss you always Uncle Johnny. You were a great Godfather and Uncle to me. Kevin has loved getting to know you and we are both very sad you left us early. I hope you got to meet Officer Abigail at the pearly gates as well as Papa.

We are sorry to hear of your loss, Mrs Knust. Desmond and I want you to know that you are in our warmest thoughts. We pray that you find comfort in your precious memories and that you know the peace that the "God of all Comfort' offers to us. The soothing words of Psalm 34:18 have been of great comfort to me : " God is close to the brokenhearted, he saves those who are crushed in spirit".

I grew up directly across the street from the Knust homestead. My address was 3928 Ave O. Johnny and I were both born in Feb, 1952 and I have many fond memories of growing up as neighborhood kids and friends. While I attended Ursuline Academy and graduated from Ball High Johnny graduated O'Connell. I remain close with many OC grads and know Johnny will be missed greatly and be forever in their hearts May he RIP.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Today I grieve for a man I have never met in person but for the last 7 years I have considered to be a good friend. We have played Words with Friends for that long. He started playing before me and when asked if he wanted to play with someone just starting he challenged me. Now 4600 games later and by the way he was ahead by 840, I think he loved the game just like me. This morning when he hadn’t played in 4 days I knew something was not right. I looked up obituaries for Galveston and my heart broke. We chatted over the years about many things, consoled each other about family and pet loses. I know all of his friends on the game will miss him, I know I certainly will. He was a wonderful man, my prayers are with you all.
