Gifford Knapp's influence
You have heard it said that we are a part of everyone that we come in contact with and I would add that only once in a while does someone in your life really have a major impact. Well for me that someone was Gifford Knapp. I first met Gifford when he brought his John Deere tractor and plow to my dad's farm. My dad had hired him to plow a field for corn. I was so attracted to the process of plowing that I followed Gifford as he turned the black earth with my footsteps in his furrow.
