early Saturday morning driving back from a gig at the Lone Star Saloon in Uvalde, Texas when a two-door Chevy sedan drifted into their lane on Texas 173 at 3:35 a.m. Saturday.

Police believe Rogelio Palacios, 18, of Kerrville, who also died at the scene, was intoxicated that night.

Along with Frank Wantland, 45, a bass player from Ingram, and Carlos Escobedo, 51, a drummer from Ingram, the Penneys formed a Christian rock band, Pathway. The band recently completed its first demo, “These Days”

Terry Penney and Andrade also played together in a classic rock and blues band in Kerrville called Sol Patch along with Bryan Maldonado, 34, a guitarist, and Melissa Weatherly, 44, a vocalist.

Terry Penney and Andrade were known best as “hired guns,” musicians who would fill in when bands were missing players.

Funeral arrangements are still pending for the Penneys and Andrade.

    Terry will be missed by so many along with his wife and friend. Terry and I along with a group of other friends went to school together and have remained close friends all these years. This has schattered the hearts of so many.

    This DRUNK DRIVER has taken 3 beautiful people from our lives. My husband Eddie loved his family and his music. PLEASE EVERYONE think before you DRINK and DRIVE.

    Roger was my son and i love him with all my heart. Im sorry for your loss and i understand your anger. In this time of mourning, respect for all family and friends is appreciated. I am truly sorry for your loss.
    Roger was a respectful young man that had a job and responsibilities, he worked the night shift and was on his way to see his family. Should some one be judged for his mistake, let it be the person responsible, not Roger as a minor, not his family and friends, as we will all be judged.

    Sarah was my aunt and what a beautiful woman she was. I know she would have forgiven that young man, and while it seems difficult to understand now, that is what she would expect of us. While Roger was a minor, he still had a choice that night, but I know his plans would not have included the outcome. It could have been anyone, so lets pray for the rest of our family and friends. It is the only way!
    God Bless!

    Sarah Penney was my mother and a great one at that. My mom was a great friend and wife to everyone she met. When she came to know the Load she knew that he had a plan for her. And that was to deliver the word of God though her music. She told me that she was not afraid of dying that she was ready when God was ready to take her. That night God came to them and took them to a better place to sing for the him and the angels. God gave them a barrial fit for a king even if it doesn’t look like that from our point of view. I’m not mad at anyone for what happened. I just miss her very deeply. I think about her every day since. The only thing I wish so deep in my hart is that I hope I will be as great as she was to deliver the word of God like she did In her music. I want to thank all of the people for there thoughts and prayers. I hope that you all have some like I did that was so great and that loved so deeply her family, husband, and friends.

    Some of my fondest memories are of playing music with Terry and his cousin Doug from Corpus Christi back in th old days. Terry was one of a kind. I was shocked and saddened by this tragedy.
