Dr. Claude Lee Pennington Jr
Kay, my thoughts are with you and your family. I will always remember the good times when Claude took me out on the boat. It was one of the most memorable days of my life.
Kay, I'm sure you don't remember me, but I remember you well. Dr. Pennington not only saved my life in 1961, but gave me the opportunity to go to nursing school. I'm sorry I didn't contact him before he died to say thank you for giving me the life I have today. I will always love him. Lovingly, Linda Pettey Lander (Hawkinsville, GA - Macon Hospital School of Nursing class of 1965)
Kay, Eve and Lee,
I am so sorry for your loss. I was out of town yesterday and couldn't come to the funeral. Please know you are all in my prayers.
This is a poem I found and I hope you like it.
Up in Heaven a Father waits
Watching over his beloved family from Heaven's Gate.
His family's life he will follow
Embracing evermore from his new Heavenly home.
Patiently enjoying his children's life unfold,
Til in Heaven all will be rejoined.
What for the children may seem forever
Is for the Father only brief.
Since Heaven's time is not as our own.
He is for all time with you, throughout and after your grief.
So, close your eyes and say a prayer – Your Daddy is so near,
Forever and always in your Heart.
Eve, I am so sorry to hear this. I was out of town Friday-Monday and missed the obit in the paper. Please know I care and have so many fond memories of your family on Nottingham Drive. With sympathy & friendship, Janet Butler Walker
I am so sorry for your loss. Dr Pennington took care of three of my children. He was an excellent Dr. and always there for his patients. I have thought of him often over the years.
