I had the honor many years ago in Alabama to meet and become friends with Penny. We worked along side each other in a vault counting money from vending machines. We had so much fun, we even carpooled daily to and from work. Our time together was spent laughing and she had an infectious laugh! Even though years have past my memories of that special time was that Penny loved unconditionally and that you can make it through the tough times if you keep trusting God! Love you Penny, Iris, and Gabe!

Penny and I laughed and struggled as we raised our little children in Prattville, AL. I admired her strength, courage, and creativity. Life moved on, we went our separate ways but our friendship never ended.

Penny was the most wonderful person I have ever known. I am going to miss her so much.
