Bryan,
Your mother and dad were two of my favorite people in Raleigh over the past 50-some years. I will miss seeing her at all of the funerals we seem to have been at these past few years together.
But, my favorite memory will always be of bumping into your dad and you on Old Lassiter Mill Road that snowy night when you and Brandon were just little tykes. That was when the bridge was still there. What a ride!
My best wishes as well as condolences to you and your family...
Duke Fentress

Bryan,
I am so shocked and saddened by “Mrs. Pennington’s” death. Of course, she’s been “Susan” to me for years. Your mother and father were close and valued friends of my parents, Susie and Dave, from the beginning of married life with children. Heart felt condolences go out to you and your family. I will be forever grateful to Susan for being there for my mother.

Bryan,
I am sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I saw her in January when she came to visit my mother at the Cypress. She was so sweet and caring then and always. It is very strange having both my parents gone now and I know you will feel that too. I'm available if you need anything, so reach out if needed. Love to you and your family.

We are sorry for your loss. We will forever have wonderful memories of Susan (&O.C.). We are neighbors at Glenwood Gardens. Susan walked around & through the Rose arbor which is outside our unit. She always looked beautiful & was so pleasant. She is missed already.
Sincerely,
Maggie & Gary Black
