I was so sorry to hear that this sweet lady had passed away. I met her last year at Durham. I am so glad I had a chance to meet her. Prayers for Chris. May God give you peace and comfort.

Sincerest condolences to all of Penny's family, especially Rosie and Christopher. I can't remember a time when Penny wasn't my friend. I was blessed to have her as my friend for a good portion of my life; from the old days when we were together all the time to the days where we spoke only occasionally, I never doubted her friendship and I hope she never doubted mine.

Until we see each other again friend. I hope you are finally resting and no more suffering. I wish we could have found each other sooner. My military ball date and my shoulder to cry on.✝️💜
