  1. We were cousins, and I remember very good times hanging out with you as small children. After you moved I never saw you again, but was saddened by your passing. I hope your life was a good one Penny.

  2. We were close when we were young and like many people, went on to lives filled with change, adventure, marriage and children. Still, even through that and the passage of time, my heart returned to the place that we once were? whenever we communicated. I will continue to visit that place and you in my memories.
