It is with heavy hearts that Clifton and I resign as officers of the Blanco Cemetery Association. We have had the pleasure to work with so many people in happy time and in sad times. Our work was not finished but it is time for new people and new ideas to help the cemetery go forward. By the time this letter is printed, there will be new officers and we wish them well and good luck. It is a tireless job that requires patience with the people that need you and hard work in keeping the cemetery clean and beautiful in honor of the friends and loved ones that rest there.
Unfortunately, because of a death in our family, we were unable to attend the meeting. Yesterday, Feb. 27th, we packed up all the important papers and took them to the little office at the cemetery and left them in the safe hands of the Vice President, Bud Lawson. I didn’t want them to stay there overnight and I hope Bud took them home and then remembered to bring them back for the meeting. We gave him all the paperwork needed for the public meeting. I hope the information was beneficial to any and all questions that may have come up at the meeting.
Since Clifton’s eye sight is in jeopardy, this was a good time to walk away knowing that others that love the cemetery and the work that needs to still be done will follow us and make it even better. We thank all the people that have helped us along the way and hope that everyone will give the new officers the help and respect that you have always given us. The Blanco Cemetery Association has seen many changes since it started, but always for the better. And I am sure that the best is yet to come.
Thanks again for allowing us to serve the citizens of Blanco and others since we took office in 2000. We take many wonderful memories and many sad losses with us. With gratitude and love, we remain
Very truly yours,
Clifton and Joyce Knoll
