Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.Romans 12:1

Thomas Brian "Curley" Knight

There are always many laughs and stories told with this crew. Sometimes solving the world's problems and life lessons happen on any given gathering with them too. The greatest lesson they have ever taught me though is how to be a true friend. These guys live out Proverbs 17:17 and I sure am thankful to call them mine! "A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for times of adversity."
You know it's a blessing when there is so much good to say about one person that you can't even put it into words. My social media is full of stories and love for this family. I am honored to be a part of it. These 4 are a true testimony of love, faithfulness and sacrifice all while helping others along the way. Some of my favorite memories of Brian include:
His beautiful smile (that he always wore) with beautiful blue eyes and laughter!!!
Hanging out on a river bank or campsite!
Celebrating special moments in our lives including holidays, weddings, graduations or babies born!
His jokes-mostly about my "non-existent" boyfriends that he has teased me about since way prior to dating age!
And probably my MOST FAVORITE/FUN was our extreme cousin rivalry for me to ALWAYS pull against Bama! (Hence him wearing that ridiculous hat in the bottom right to my wedding shower!) 😂😂😂 I may or may not have always wore Bama's opponents colors/TSHIRTS to his football parties at his house...or at least sent a selfie to him with me in it😁
We are all sad to not have him with us here! However, Brian's legacy will live on and may we all strive to portray the same attitude he always did here for us. May we always wear a smile despite our circumstances or situations. May we all tell some jokes, laugh and encourage those in our paths. Mostly, may we all love The Lord with our whole hearts and believe in Jesus. We don't know when Our Father will call us home so we must live each day to the fullest here and be ready when He calls! Oh can you just imagine for a moment the smile that came across Curly's face when JESUS said come and WALK with me! He is WALKING on golden streets.....oh what a day that will be when JESUS WE SHALL SEE!
Prayers for comfort and strength in the coming days for his family and friends that all loved him so!

Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Such a beautiful portrait of love tonight. The love that has been shared since two people fell in love, brought two wonderful families together and then raised two boys to love others unconditionally. Thanks to each one of you who have surrounded them in prayer and came out to hug each other on this rainy, sad night. We are all so blessed to have each other. Thomas Brian 'Curly' Knight certainly taught us all how to love deeply......may we continue to honor him by doing so...

It was a beautiful day celebrating the life of a forever friend to many. Thanks to the guys who shared a perfect summary of the wonderful 39 years we had with Brian. It's hard to capture such a precious life in an hour or so but you guys made it very special!! So thankful to be a part of an amazing family surrounded by indescribable friends! Curley's legacy will live on through each of us. Thanks to The World Famous Brian Knight for all the love, fun and laughter!!! I wore Crimson proud for you the last 24 hours cuz! I'm retiring it now😘
One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.
—Psalm 27:4
