The worlds going to be a little less sweet, a little less kind, and a little less gentle from now on because I've lost one of the sweetest friends I've ever known. Penny was a kind soul and the best friend a person could ever have. She was a friend you could laugh with, share your secrets with, and you could be yourself with. She never judged you, she saw you as you wish you were and not the way you really were and liked you anyway. There aren't many things in life as wonderful as having had a friend like Penny and I will miss her dearly! Rest In Peace sweet friend.
