When I married your Uncle Billy , I became a part of your wonderful family. Family reunions, birthdays, weddings , holidays and so much more. Such a loving and giving family . It was hard when Angela finally lost her battle and we all grieved her loss . She was such a love . Your struggling with life, its ups and downs, you never turned away . I still remember your love for cowboy hats and your smiles , Penny . You fought many a battle but this one . ..well...the Lord won this one for you and gave you peace and no more grief and pain. You are renewed and will have a rich new life . Always, . Kare5
