I am saddened to hear of the passing of sweet Connie. She and I chatted regularly on facebook about our family ties and memories of days gone by. She was a bit older than me and told me so much about our heritage that I hadn't heard. It hasn't been that long ago that we were talking about my mom and I coming to her parents home so that my mom could tutor her in math. I told her I remembered that very well as I always tagged along. I remembered her mom serving ice cold homemade lemonade in a glass pitcher with matching glasses and my mom telling me not to spill my glass as I might break it, I must have been a clumsy child! Sweet memories of cousins visiting cousins. I will miss chatting with Connie, she was like her mom, a sweetheart. My prayers are with her family during this difficult time.

I am so sad to have just learned of the passing of my sweet cousin Connie. She and I, and all our families, shared such love and good times all our lives, whether down in Athens, and also up here in New Jersey. Such a sweet and multi talented lady, who proudly showed her love for our country and her Lord : she will be missed by so many. Rest in Peace up there now, and be so happy with Janet, your parents,.......and mine too.
'Till we meetagain! Love, Wally Padulo, & family
