To Penny's family:

Please know that you are in my prayers. Penny was a beautiful person and a dear soror to me and my mom. She was joy and will be greatly missed - especially in Delta. She was warm and loving and such a hard worker.

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life." - John 5:24-26

The Bible conveys a message that death is not the end of life; it is only the body that perishes, the spirit can never die ... it continues to live.

Penny is a Soror, a friend, and a leader that will never be forgotten.

My condolences to you all.
