Thea, and the whole Pennings family, wish to thank you, Ebenezer family, for the many messages of condolences, cards, flowers and so many words of encouragement; all of these brought us so much comfort, as did the words of so many who came out to the service for dad. Thank you, Pastor Adam for your encouraging words, visits and for leading the service; all so comforting! We thank the volunteers who made the wonderful luncheon and reception meal, those who helped with setting up in the church and those who helped and took part in the funeral service; we appreciate it all very much. We will miss Bert (dad) very much, yet rejoice he is with the Lord.   Thank you, the Pennings Family
