Claiming God's promises and remembering God will never abandon us during our times of grief — he will always provide us with love and hope. "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away."

Remembering what a special person Penny was in all of your lives. May God grant you peace and comfort this day.

My fondest memory of Penny is the love she had for her husband and her family. She always smiled even when she was speaking her mind. I was fortunate to live with her for an extended period and witnessed what an amazing person she was. I love you Penny and am truly sorry we lost you at such a young age. You we ALWAYS be remembered. Love Ro

There are no words to express the feeling of sorrow when one loses a family member, but there is comfort in knowing that many people are there Physically, Mentally and Spiritually for you to lean on during this time and going forward in life and that is a testament to the love she has for all of you.
