Mrs. Pannell was a sweet Christian lady who was loved by us at Morningside Baptist Church. She was always so kind and loved having folks stop by and visit. I know she will be greatly missed. Our condolences and prayers go out to the family. May God's peace and strength be yours in the days ahead.

I first met Miss Pannell when Mike & I were juniors in high school. Every time I was around her she always had a smile on her face. I feel very fortunate to have known such a wonderful lady. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
