    I was so sorry to read of “Mrs. Knopf’s” passing in the Jacksonville paper. Many years ago in the early 70’s when I was in college I worked part time at All Makes Rental Service to help typing invoices. Mrs. Knopf was the bookkeeper for the store. She was very helpful to me and a fun, lively and lovely person to work with. I remember those times fondly. My deepest condolences to her children in the loss of their mother.
