Ms. Vanessa S. Penuel of Winterville, N.C. entered into eternal rest on April 30,2021.
“In tears we saw you sinking and watched you fade away.
Our hearts were almost broken, we wanted you to stay.
So now you are sleeping, so peacefully and free from pain.
How could we wish you back with us to suffer again”?
