To the Knox family my sincerest condolences. Virginia and I met while I was researching information for my book on Norton. She was such a delight. I would sit with her for hours and we would talk all about Norton and where she grew up. She shared photographs and donated two flails to the museum. For the past few years we sent Christmas cards to one another. She was one of my favorite people.
