    My condolences to the family. Penny was an active part of the comunity, but when I thumb through the Madrigal Cookbook looking for her yummy recipe for rice pudding is when I think of all that she gave to our community.

    I’m so sorry to hear of Penny’s passing. She touched the lives of many people in her community and I greatly admired and loved her. We had great times singing together in the Madrigal Choir and attending Georgetown Presbyterian church until I moved away 4 years ago. Wished I could attend her funeral service but I’ll be singing at the funeral service of a member of my new Presbyterian congregation in Lachute on the same date, Saturday, January 27th in the afternoon. Our sincere condolences to Robbie and family.

    Brigitte & Leo
