Knoxville (WVLT) - Sunday family and friends celebrated the life of a young woman murdered in a carjacking 21 year old Channon Christian.
Folks gathered at Westpark Baptist Church on Middlebrook Pike Sunday afternoon for a final memorial.
Following the service, Channon was laid to rest at Highland West Cemetery.
And in a West Knoxville neighborhood balloons filled the air in memory of Channon and to show support for her family.
A balloon with a Bible scripture was tied to each home's mailbox.
Becky Sherlock says this is a different and special way to honor the family.
"You don't know always what to say or do and this is a way to show them in a quiet way that we're thinking about her all the time," says Becky Sherlock.
Before releasing the balloon, folks could take a moment to remember Channon and her family.
