    My heart is saddened because my very supportive and true friend is no longer present in the body. I rejoice nonetheless knowing that I spoke with her last on Thanksgiving and I am therefore thankful that she will always be with me in spirit.

    “It is so hard to say goodbye” to a friend whom I’ve known since 5th grade and have shared so many good times as well as the bad times down through the years.

    My heartfelt condolences are expressed to the Burress Family. My family shares with me in the loss of Penny’s presence with us. Penny touched so many lives with her wonderful personality and desire to interact with others. Her legacy of cherished memories help to encourage us as we strive to live out the legacy she so richly blessed us with. A life-long friend has beat us to the finish line. Penny, take your rest so that you will be ready to celebrate when we join you as we cross over the finish line!

    To the Family of Penny Milladge,
    I extend to you my deepest sympathy for your loss. I met Penny when she worked for a government agency for which I had a great deal of contact. Penny always greeted me with a smile and then we chatted a while. I left her presence always with a smile because of her humor.
    I’m reminded of what Jesus said to his disciples when he returned to the Father and I hope you will too. John 14:1-3. God Bless You

    To the Buress family I pray you find comfort in knowing Penny is with God, and she no longer has the challenges of this world; I have know Penney since High School; I have lived in MD for many years and looked forward to seeing Penney during my visits to Norfolk. She joined me in family activities and was always a step away from making me laugh with her comments. Penney will be missed and she was loved by all; I am sorry I did not have the opportunity to say good by or see you later. My prayers are with you.

    It is with great sadness and deep sympathy that I extend my condolences to Ms. Mildred and family.

    I remember Penny! She was my sister’s (Sheryl) childhood friend and they remained friends up until this very moment. It wasn’t often that you’d see one without the other. Penny was our family’s friend. She was everyone’s friend and you could ALWAYS count on her to make you laugh.. laugh… laugh… laugh… laugh. This beautiful legacy of love and laughter she leaves will not soon be forgotten… and neither will that voice… so rich and deep…

    Rest in Heaven, Penny! Lambert’s Point Forever!

    When we all get to heaven… what a day of rejoicing that will be…

    Penny was a classmate of mine. I want to extend my sincere condolences to Penny’s family. She was always full of life with personality and humor. I would speak with her from time to time over the years and the conversations were as though no time had passed. Two things stand out in thinking of her, in one of the last two conversations with her she detected I was not feeling well at that time, and she was willing to assist where she could with all she was dealing with. In the other, my daughter was temporarily in California, involved with a project; again, she offered to contact a source to assist with temporary housing, in spite of all that she dealt with. Penny took our friendship seriously. She had a service heart with strong faith. Rest in peace, my friend. My thoughts and prayers will be with your family during this time.

    Penny, who I met while I was a procurement specialist for DAPS, was such a caring person
    And a shining star at GPO in Newport News. My sympathy goes to her family at this time.

    To the Burress Family. I am so sorry for your lost. Penny and I talked on a regular and shared many laughs together. She will be greatly missed.Even though she is sleeping, according to John 5: 28,29, all of those in the common grave of mankind will be resurrected. So I will see her again. May Jehovah be with you in your time of grief.
