Cathy,
I am so sorry to hear about your mom. You are the person who absorbed the love and then shared. She must have been wonderful.

Condolences to the family. Sam, Colleen and family, and Cathy. We enjoyed the day four of us came to the lake to visit and have lunch. Like when we were in school at her parents’ home at the lake. Lots of fun at their home in Centerville area. Connie was a brilliant Lady and tutor to many of us. Will be missed by many. ❤️
