I love you Penney! I loved your mom as if she were mine. One thing that will never leave you is the memories with your mom that are always in your heart. She loved you very much too, and is watching you now. Don’t fret, she was your mom, and now is your guardian angel,and there’s no one you would rather have for that task than her. I am still praying for all of you. Love you more…R

Penney,

You know that you are in my thoughts. Your mother was such a kind, sweet and loving person. In the 47 years that I knew her, I can not remember ever hearing her say an unkind word. She was always cheerful and smiling, right up until the end when we saw her in the hospital. We both know how hard it is to lose someone that we love so much, but I know that she is with Judy and Roger now and how great that has to be for all of them.

I love you!

Penney, I Loved your mom so much. She was a very sweet lady,that loved her family so much. I loved it when I use to get to do her hair, She always has to touch it when I finished doing it. It was like a ritual every time. I never got upset when she did it . I would always stand back and after she touched it I knew we were finished. Thank you for sharing her with me. I loved her so much.
