Program for Mildred Harden McKnight's
Celebration of Life
Today, Operation Safety 91 was honored to participate in the Celebration of Life of Mildred Harden McKnight, the dear mother of our National Spokesperson, COL Danny McKnight, U.S. Army (Ret.). Mildred was beloved and the First Baptist Church of Cocoa was filled with family and friends as Pastor Charles Horton gave a wonderful tribute to his devoted Church member. Both COL Danny McKnight and his brother Jimmy spoke about their mother, and their brother, Bill read the Scriptures. Beautiful renditions of How Great Thou Art and Amazing Grace were sung by granddaughters, Natalie McKnight and Nicole McKnight Hamilton.
Mildred was laid to rest at Florida Memorial Funeral grounds on South U.S. Hwy 1 in Rockledge. The Funeral Procession was led by Rockledge Police, who are very dear to Operation Safety 91. Chief Ronald Krueger, friend of COL McKnight and the McKnight family, not only attended the Celebration of Life, but was out with his Officers directing traffic to make way for the Funeral Procession.
We were so touched to see even Firefighters standing at attention along the Procession route to honor the mother of COL McKnight.
We honor the memory of the mother of COL Danny McKnight, whom OS91 is blessed to have as our National Spokesperson, as well as to call friend. We thank God for her and for him!
