Welcome to the Jim Penny Family website!
We are deeply saddened by the loss of James Richard (Jim) Penny on April 4, 2006, but trust he is resting high on the mountain in the presence of our Lord. We miss you, Pappaw!
In honor of Jim, we created this website as an opportunity for you to explore our family tree. With that in mind and so you too can appreciate the wonderful man he was, here is a poem that was shared at his memorial service -
To an Amazing Husband, Father, Pappaw and Friend, The love for you will never end
When we were small you sat us on your knees, While we rocked by the window looking out at the trees
All the long talks and guidance we keep, And the goodnight kisses before we went to sleep
Nothing compares to Pappaw and Mammaw's home, The comfort, peaceful, and fun place to roam
There are so many memories we have together, That we will cherish and remember forever
Nothing compares to your sweet, sensitive touch, We are all going to miss you so much.
You brought a smile to everyone's face, That no one will ever replace.
Pappaw you are so very amazing, You always had the answer no matter what we were facing
You have brought happiness to my life, You and your unbelievable wife
I believe we can all agree that we weren't ready to let you go, Pappaw you were and are the rock in our family with your marvelous glow
We are happy you are dismissed from all the pain, And we know that our loss is surely your gain
Pappaw I hope Heaven is everything we always dreamed of, and you are loving your new life up above
I know you are looking over us while we are still here, You are with the angels we have nothing to fear
Until we meet again at the pearly white gate, In our hearts we will keep you close while we wait
