Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Knighten family, My family really liked and appreciated Mrs Knighten. She always kept us informed about our mother, Virginia Gibson, who lived across the hall from her. Since Mother had progressing dementia by then ,it was nice to know we had extra eyes looking out for her. She was so sweet and it was always a joy to talk to her. We know you all took very good care of her as her room was always so pretty and sunny. She spoke lovingly of her daughters and family and we know she will be missed. We will continue to remember you in prayer through this time. Sincerely, Paula Mills, Jane Boughman, and Gibson family

I got to know "Miss Norma" at Peachtree Centre. She always had a beautiful smile on her face. She loved little animals so much. I loved taking her picture with the pets brought into the facility and putting it in the paper. She had such a kind and loving expression on her face whenever she was petting a little cat or dog. I cherish the memories that we shared over the years. For the family, you are such a wonderful family and you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love you.
