To Alvena, Darlene, Cluney, Melanie, Jessica & Brandon - and family of the late Jim Penney- So sorry to hear of the passing of your precious dad and pop. Its never easy to say good bye to someone who you loved so much. How do we articulate words of comfort to you? The only way is through the Word of God which declares that you will see your loved one again. The bible also says Absent from the body means he is now present with the Lord. We love you and praying for strength for the coming days ahead.

I'm so sorry to hear about Jim's passing. I remember him fondly. I always felt like one of his own when I visited every summer.

I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Jim, but I know his wonderful and kind daughter, Gloria. If Jim had a hand in raising her, I know he was an awesome man. My condolences to Gloria and the entire Penney family.
