  1. Aunt Penny will be great missed. Regardless of the distance between visits, we always seemed to pick up as if we had just seen other weeks before. She is one of the few people that I can say that I only have good memories of. I recently visited her in the hospital and found out that she has TWO tattoos - which only elevated her "coolness" factor even more. Love you Aunt Penny - Rest In Peace.
