      I will truly miss Mrs. Julia Knight. I will miss her jokes, laughter and being around me and my family. She often attended our family & church events. She was onw of my mom and my deceased grandmother’s (Ethelene Williams) best friend for over 54 years or longer. There will never be anyone else to fill her shoes. Now she walks in her heavenly shoes. I will miss her very much but GOD needed her more. Ricky, Earlean & the entire Knight family, my heart and prayer is with you on this day.
