Andy and I have always had a special place in our hearts for Ms. Penny. She was a strong prayer warrior and peace maker during our families life challenges and struggles. To Ms. Penny thank you for always remembering us in your prayers. We love you.

Andy & Kathy Fitzgerald, Sparta, Ga.

I am so sorry to hear about Penny. We definitely all look forward to the time when God is going to rid our lives of the things that cause us sadness. “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” - Revelation 21:4. We can have confidence in this promise because it comes from God and he always carries out his will.

“Your loved ones legacy. The Christian legacy does more than point us back to a life remembered it also points ahead to the celebration of what is to come. As we look back, we think of the faith that was expressed through day-by-day living for Jesus., The love that was extended in so many caring ways, and the blessings that God brought to so many through that life. As we look ahead we wait in Joyous expectation for the reunion that will be ours in heaven and for the eternal wonders that we will discover together when we are in the presence of the Lord“ Roy Lessin. Prayers and comfort as we all celebrate the life of a good and faithful servant ?

What a beautiful addition to our heavenly home. Tho, a great earthly loss. A dear precious friend and sister in Christ for 57 years. Beautiful memories to treasure. We will miss her, “being in charge.” Our love to the family.

Our thoughts are with Penny's family at this difficult time. May sharing your memories as a family bring you comfort in the days to come. Libby and Elizabeth Ann Scott

Ah...that smile. We will miss that smile, hugs of encouragement, and words of wisdom. We will truly miss her...yet we rejoice knowing she is with her Savior and reunited w/those that she held dear.

Vernon and Valerie Cole, Savanannah, GA

Miss Penny was my Sunday school teacher over 38 years ago as a young married woman. She taught me "but by the grace of God." Meaning never look down on anyone because that could always be me. Miss Penny threw me a huge baby shower in her home for our first baby. Through all these years she continued to pour into my life by sharing God's truths with me, praying with me, and checking in on me weekly. She was like a mother to me. My heart aches for her. Sitting in church Sunday just brought to mind how Miss Penny is now fully healthy and living eternally in heaven.

Angie Ivey, Savannah , GA

Honey was always so gracious and warm. She was an excellent listener and loved dessert as much as I do. She will be missed. Sending love to her many loved ones.

our hearts ache for this lovely family. Since we first met Lori and Paul several years ago, we immediately got to know Lori’s family. We learned to love them and their love for our Lord, their service to his church and the deep love this family has for anyone they touch. Kurt and I are out of the state and wish we could be there to share your mother’s celebration and show our deep care for each of you. We love all of you and you are in our hearts and prayers.

Words are inadequate to express how sad I am to know she is gone. I am happy to know her body is whole again and pain is gone. I am sure Bubba was ready and waiting for Honey. She made such an impression on my life as a young married person and young mother. I remember her talking to me about my mother and that was very special to me. She is one of the most precious people I have ever known. The legacy of love she has left behind is her beautiful family and my thoughts and prayers are with you. I know your loss is great...

Lori D Hecker, Savannah, Ga

I loved Ms. Penny, Clyde, and the whole family. I have a close kinship with them all. Ms. Penny was the one who encouraged me to work with the Bonna Bella Bear Club. One of the sweetest people I have ever known. I will miss her greatly, and her wonderful smile.

Herbert Hilderbrand, Savannah, Georgia

We are going to miss Mrs. Penny.... her sweet smile and words of wisdom...We pray God will surround each of you with a peace that can only come from Him. We love you!!!
