Not sure what to say?

Remembering you, dear friend . . .

I was so sad when I found out she was dead. She was one of my favorite neighbors. I remember whenever we BBQ'D she would call and ask to bring some down to her house. Also, every morning before school, she would ask for a ride to the bus station. She will always be in my mom's and siblings' mind.);

To The Unknown Family & Friends: I am truly saddened to hear of her passing.May we all find comfort in knowing that "To be absent from the body is to be present with the LORD"

I would like to say thank you Ms. Peniston while I was student at Pulaski Jr.High from 1973-1975. You were a source of encouragement always. I will always remember your competive spirit while you were bowling at Tri-City Bowling when it was open. I always felt you were a quiet mother always looking over my shoulder just to make sure I was obedient. May the Lord bless you because you are in a great place and that is in the Lord's presence.

I am so sorry and saddened to hear of Ms. Peniston passing. I am a neighbor of hers. She will be greatly missed by many friends.

Remember. “This World is the Land of the Dying; The Next is the Land of the Living.” LORD...Protect and Keep Her! With Sympathy. Atty. Clorius L. Lay

To The Family: May you find comfort in knowing that the LORD JESUS is with us always.
