My deepest sympathy to Penny's family. I went to Assumption School with Penny and I had seen her several times over the years since we graduated. I well remember her smile, laugh, determination and her faith. I know that her children were blessed to have such a wonderful mother. I also remember how Penny selflessly and lovingly cared for both of her parents. I'm sure she had a beautiful welcome into God's light led by her Mom and her Dad...probably singing to her..."You Are My Sunshine."
