    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. May God bring you happy memories and peace. I grew up with Penny just around the corner from her on Linden Avenue in the Mayfair subdivision. We had been friends for a long time growing up. My thoughts of her as I drive through our old neighborhood or nothing but pleasant she was such a great friend to grow up with. I recognized her picture right away. May she rest in peace. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
