My prayers of comfort for you all. She was a true "caregiver" to all. She helped me with many of my papers during my studies for a Master's Degree in Health Care Administration, a true expert in our field.

Only knew Mrs. Knowlson when my Mother was in Park Haven. She was so kind & caring & I knew her main concern was for the patients there. I knew my Mom was in good hands. (not so easy putting a family member in a nursing home )My prayers & thoughts go out to her daughters & family.
