Penny Lynn Rybolt

have a memory or condolence to add?


September 6, 2018

Penny, which I refer to as my "Second Mom", so many wonderful memories with my oldest sister.
She took me to church with her as a child, showed me to put others before yourself. Show compassion to the hurting. Look beyond their faults and see their need, which can be very difficult. Listen to God and walk your life journey knowing God will guide your steps. I will miss Penny so much. She grew weary and worn at the end of her life journey on this earth, but her spirit and soul was strong. R.I.P. and receive that Mansion in Heaven and words from Jesus. Well done my good and faithful servant.
