My deepest condolences to the La Forte family, especially Patti, JoAnn and Diana. I have known the La Forte family my entire life, Connie and Vinnie were very dear friends of our family. My parents are heart broken. They have been friends for over 65 years. My prayers go out to the family. Connie and Vinnie are together once again, and will always be in our hearts.

They took over the Health club's snack bar after me. They ran it with love and in the summer when it was outside, we all got to share them with their family and ours. I also was fortunate to see them almost every week at St. Gerard's until this COVID. I am so sorry that she so quickly followed Vinny. I am comforted knowing they are again together, now forever, Rest in peace and love..

So many happy memories with Connie and Vinny. They were always present and smiling at all of our parties, camping, and quite a few weddings where they always hit the dance floor. We also learned how to play Mexican train and several card games with them. All of these memories and more will live on in the legacy of the beautiful family they've left behind. Our hearts go out to all of the extended La Forte, Teich, Bradford and Reed family. Love, Sue and Allan XO

When I was a kid playing at my Aunt Connie’s house, I got hit in the head. Aunt Connie and my Mom was checking me out and Aunt Connie noticed that there was something in my ear. They both started working on me and pulled out almost a whole tissue or piece of paper out of my ear. Maybe it was my homework, I have no idea how that got in there or what it was. I have so many memories of Aunt Connie and Uncle Vinnie. They will be missed. Rest In Peace with Love Rob.

Connie....my first cousin on my father's side. We were both named after our grandmother. My name is Constance. Grandma's name was Concetta.
I remember visiting her house when I was a kid living in Brooklyn. It was always fun to be with her and her two brothers, Frankie & Dominic. I loved hearing her Dad, My Uncle John, play the piano.

I had a cousin party years ago and was so happy that she was able to attend.
I always looked up to her as such a beautiful and fine lady.

I'm glad I got to speak to her a few months ago. I was trying to get a zoom meeting, but it never happened, but it was nice to talk on the phone. Much love.

Vinny & Connie were very involved with the Village. That’s where I met them . They were always together and always such a loving couple. Losing them both was such a loss for me. I’m going to miss them a lot . Vinny was the coolest and Connie was the best. She was so great with the Beautification Party with the Village. She always was there for them. They will be missed so much.

Connie will truly be missed by all who knew her. I have so many memories of Connie and Vinny visiting at the campground.
My children loved Connie and referred to her as "Gramma Connie".
Connie loved to play games and cards, everyone who was camping would gather around the table and join in on the games. We always had a great time when they came to visit. Connie you will be missed!
