    So sorry you had to leave your loved ones now, Penny. Many have been praying God would help you get well. I guess He had others plans. Now you are in a beautiful place that we can’t even imagine. No more suffering and tears. Until we meet again my friend, know you will be missed and were loved. Judy Jones
