Friends, students share thoughts on slain brothers

September 04, 2006

A group, "In Memory of Benjamin and Logan Pennington," had 36 members as of about 4 p.m. Sunday.

The Penningtons were shot by their father in a parking lot at Shepherd University Saturday, police said.

This is a public group on the Web site. Here are some excerpts:

"This is a global group for all to come together and share their thoughts and feelings on what happened. Pease join if you knew them ... or even if you don't and just want to join in support or to share prayers. Please share any memories you have, photos, anything. RIP, Ben and Logan; you are loved and will not be forgotten."

"I never knew either of you, but it's a shame an incident like yesterday's had to happen to such wonderful people known around campus. You will be sadly missed by everyone. This has definitely hit home. Keep an eye on all of us and point us in the right direction. Rest in peace."


"I will miss you both, especially you, Logan. You reminded me so much of myself - you were quiet and shy, and that's why I was very comfortable with you. Thanks for the laughs and good times. Two of the nicest guys anyone could wish to meet will be remembered!"

"You guys will always rock. I am so grateful to have known you. Every time I watch a Woody Allen movie, I'll think of you, Ben."

"I just found out that it was Ben and his brother who were the unfortunate ones in the incident yesterday. I remember when I first saw Ben walking around. I noticed that he walked everywhere - a lot. I thought it was cool - he seemed so laid-back and shy, so I met him. It's too bad all we had time for this semester was to say hi in passing. I'll miss his humor, his being, and not getting to know him more. My prayers are with his family and friends."

"I knew Ben, the best guy you could ever meet. I played JV Baseball with him. One of my best friends hadn't seen him in 5 years. I just saw him on here the other day. I wanted to see how he was doing and I just got news today about what happened. I just wanted to send some prayers out to everyone that knew him and his family."
