    At the wake of Penny yesterday, I did get to meet all of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. The ones that I did meet were some of the nicest people I have ever met. I did not like the situation that brought us all together but I am so happy I met Penny and Larrys family. I am so sorry for the loss of your mother, grandmother as you all seemed so close. Also Larry, I am so sorry for the loss of Penny. My prayers are with the whole family.
