  4. Hadley and Family,
    So sorry reading about your mothers passing.
    Wonderful lady whom I was able to get to know thru baseball with you and Brian.
    Whenever I saw her in the grocery store she always took time to talk and say hello.
    Be at peace knowing she is in heaven today. God Bless. Michael Conner

  7. Patty was a true inspiration, trusted loyal friend of whom I valued most dearly. Along with Hadley, she welcomed me and my husband Bruce immediately into their family after our move 44yrs ago from WV. So far away from family Patty made me feel part of their family and always a trusted friend she was. I cherish movie memories and especially value the time we shared last Saturday before her passing. My love and sincerest sympathies to Hadley at all family home are so dear to me

  11. Ms. Pat was a very special lady who welcomed us into the neighborhood and her family. She cared for us, was like another grandmother to Gavin and Kylie, and was such a joy to visit. We are so blessed that we were able to know her and love her. We love the whole Pennock family and wish them peace and joy in their memories of her. Heaven just got on of the best souls I know.
