    I am so sorry for everyone's loss, I wish more than anything I could have met Penny but I will take care of her son for the rest of his life and that's a promise to all of you. I'm so sorry for meeting under these circumstances and I hope to know all of you a little better going forward. Ryan is a fantastic man and I love him more than anything in the world. Again I'm so sorry. Please let me know if I can do anything to help

    My deepest sympathy to all of Penny's family. Throughout junior high and high school Penny was one of my very best friends. We had so much fun between school and our chorus days to church and the youth choir. She always had a sweet, caring spirit about her, and was kind to all. God has truly got an angel in Penny.
