Special Agent Knapp,
I have had the honor and the privilege of getting to know you better through some wonderful articles I've read and through your family. I remember when you gave your all to save a precious life. I was so sad when I read about your loss as you are a part of my FBI family. I was very touched though that you did what you did for a stranger. Greater Love Hath No Man.
I know you and my dad are dear friends now.... sharing stories about life, love, your families, honor, fidelity, bravery and integrity. I am excited to meet you as well.
I pray for your family. Rest well Sir. You are one of my Heroes.
