Penny and I met during our freshman year in college. We were in the same dorm and next door to each other. We became great friends and shared many laughs and friends together. We vacationed together after graduation and she was a bridesmaid in my wedding. Another good friend(Lana, who is now also deceased)’and I traveled to Elkins WV to attend her wedding! She was always so positive and tons of fun. I will remember her always.♥️
