Let us remember Mom forever

A mother's love lasts forever

A mother's love never ends

We'll hold you in our hearts forever

We'll carry your love within our hearts

Forever missed

Forever loved

We'll always remember you
  • 60 years old
  • Born on September 12, 1948 in Ontario, Oregon, United States.
  • Passed away on March 2, 2009 in Lebanon, Oregon, United States.

This memorial website was created in the memory of our mom, Lana Knapp.

In one word Mom was love.  It's hard to put into words all she was, to us.  She was a loving, warm, kind person and woman.  Mom was a loving and devoted mom.  She loved all and all who knew her loved her.

Mom was such a strong person.  She was so resilient and seemed to just do what needed to be done without complaint.  She was self-sacrificing.  Mom taught us manners.  She told us to "be nice" and to "be good".  Mom had such a poise and grace about her.  She was beautiful, inside, and out!  She put others first.  She had such a way with people.  Her children were her pride and joy, her everything, and she would do whatever she could for them and everyone.  She was hardworking, a truly independent woman (those words don't do it justice).  She was unselfish and a very caring person.  She truly had unconditional love for us.  She always told me "not to judge".

Mom left us too soon.  Words can't express what she was to us and how will we miss her the rest of our whole lives.  Mom was love, our mom, and home to us.

It's so hard to believe she's already gone.  Wish I'd known.  We will so miss her.  The best mom.  Ever!

 We will remember her forever.

Love and miss you, Mom. Just heard that Grandma is in Heaven, and I know she's with you and all our loved ones in Heaven also. I can't believe it's been 5 years; it seems like yesterday I saw you. XOXO

Looking at these photos & listening to his song, really chokes me up. Thanks, Amy for putting so much work into this beautiful site. We miss you, Mom. We'll see you soon. Until then, we're cooking lots of extra food, and showing lots of love to everyone we meet, like you taught us.

Thinking of you, Mom. Like always. Hard to believe it's been three years since you've been gone to heaven. Miss you so much. Remember you, and wish you were here. I don't know why you had to go so soon; Mama, you were so young. I will always remember you and miss your hugs and smile. I love you; we all do! Putting on a brave smile, Love, A.

I'm sorry I didn't appreciate you enough when you were here, Mom. You are such a great person! I took your love for granted. One day, we'll be closer and I will return the love you gave me. You are the best, and greatest, and the most loving mom. Mamers

Not a day goes by that I don't think of my dear sweet sister. She was beautiful inside and out.

I think I took Mom for granted. She was such a wonderful person. When she was gone I realized my wrong.
