To Connie's family - I send my deepest condolences. It's been quite a while since I worked with Connie at ConnectiCare...the great picture reminds me of her...always so easy-breezy. And a darn good HR professional. Lambert Owens, another former ConnectiCare friend, just told me the sad news. Not what I wanted to hear. I hope you can take comfort that she is not in pain and that she is well remembered by a large group of friends across the country.
