    This truly breaks my heart. I loved her in Laverne and Shirley. I’ve been hoping for a reboot someday. Sad to see that won’t happen. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to watch the show the same way again. RIP Penny. I hope you and your brother Garry are able to be reunited. Thank you to both you and Garry for making such amazing movies and shows.
