Penny Thompson Memorial Fund

Donation protected
On September 4, Penny (7) passed away after a tragic bike accident by her home.

We humbly request your help in supporting Penny’s family during this difficult time. Any amount will help lessen the financial stress that comes with funeral expenses, and with taking the time her parents will need in order to grieve this profound loss. Additional funds will also be needed for a future memorial to honor this bright and beautiful girl.

There is no bigger loss, and her parents (Hayley Wender and Patrick Thompson) will need the collective support of all family, friends, and community members to hold them up as they navigate this new reality.

Thank you for any support you can give.

*Organized by friends and colleagues on behalf of the Wender Thompson family.
