  1. We are so sorry for the loss of your Dear Mother.

  2. God Bless The USA! Penny and I would sing her favorite song each time I’d visit! Look forward to seeing her when The Lord calls me home!

  3. Was so glad I meant you and the kids when I joined PWP, are friendship along with Susie & Kathy making the 4 musketeer’s will never be forgotten. Glad I moved back to Lincoln and was able to see you more often then before…. I love you

  4. Penny & I were on a bowling league when I lived in Lincoln, Paul, Ward & Lynn along with my two girls would go in the nursery together. We had alot of laughs along with our friend Jane. I moved away, visited her a few times when I was back; however sadly lost touch over the years. Penny was so funny & kind.
    Condolences to the family.

  5. I wish I could be there on Friday to say goodbye to a special cousin. Penny was fun, laughed a lot. It was always fun at the Frenzen gatherings Even though I was in shock at my son’s funeral I was so glad she and Gary came to the service. It meant a lot. You will be missed. I love you and happy you are at peace. I’m sure you’re whooping it up and having fun
