Penny & family,
I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. There are many fond memories especially with tennis that I reflect back on, and remember the talks we would have during matches. I hope that with the support of family and friends it will help get you through this difficult time.
With my sincere sympathy,

Penny and Family: Our deepest sympathies for your loss. We are so blessed to have you as neighbors for so many years. I would always smile seeing Charlie cut his grass with one hand--never saw him with 2 hands on the mower. And always so kind and friendly.
