I remember when Penny would sing her but off at Salem Missionary Baptist church every Sunday and never missed a beat. So sorry for your lost. Praying for you all.

I remember Penny singing in the choir at Salem. She had a voice, that I will NEVER forget.
I am praying for the family during this time of mourning. May HOLY SPIRIT COMFORT YOU ALL.
