I was surprised to see Connie in the obituary page. She was liked by most all she met, and she never met a stranger. I used to talk with her at Walmart. She would be here in Conway and then gone and show up again in several months. I was always glad to see her and catch up on her travels, you see I was a truck driver. She would have been a happy truck driver but she loved to travel. It is one of those blessings to have known her. My Sympathy to the family who has many memories to share.
