I was so sorry to hear of Connie's passing. I will always remember the many years we spent together at Phelps Luck Elementary School. Her happy smile, warm friendship, and daily acts of kindness endeared her to staff and students alike. One of my favorite memories is the day that Connie came to my aid with the old zerox machine. It was not working correctly and by the time Connie and I finished "fixing" it, it did not work at all. We looked at each other in horror, then went to report the problem to the office staff. From then on, Connie would offer her assistance with a huge smile any time she saw me using the machine. How wonderful it is that I had the opportunity to know this special lady. My thought and prayers are with her family at this difficult time. May warm memories surround you and bring you quiet moments of peace.
