It is a sad time for us. We first met Connie on a cruise in 2011. We all became good friends (including Dottie) at the dining table. We have been on many cruises throughout the years with the whole group. Connie was very special to me. We hit it off right away . We would like to remember her laugh ( so much so - tears running down our faces) as well as her stories she shared with us when she was young. Although we were able to see her one last time in 2019,she was failing in health and was not the person she used to be. Allan and I are so thankful that we got to spend time with her as we knew it would be our last time seeing her. We hugged and kissed her and it was very hard to say goodbye.
We send our condolences to her family and thank you for the beautiful memory video!

She was one of the most loving and welcoming people that you could have ever met. I remember when Julie and I were in elementary/middle school and we went to visit for a weekend and ended up staying the week because we had so much fun. I am so blessed to have had her in my life for the time that I did. I am so sorry for the families loss, I can only imagine how much she will be missed.
