I met Connie in the late 1970s. We were going through a modeling course and she asked me for coffee after our class. I had been brought up in the Christian faith and accepted Jesus as my personal Savior as a child. But I had wandered. She shared her faith and we became friends. One day when I was at her home, her pastor stopped by and I met him. I found out he was divorced. He was so nice and invited me to church. I had been divorced and thought I would not be welcome at church. I took him up on his offer and began attending church with Connie and Bernie.

My life changed slowly as I grew and began to read my Bible. I invited my parents and sister to church and they all became members. I even went on a mission trip to Haiti. But my life was still entangled in sin. I had the opportunity to move across the country for a job. Over the next few years, I finally surrendered my all to the Lord. I am now walking with Him.

Connie was the one who started this process. The Lord used her in a might way to impact my life for eternity. I am very grateful and will miss her. But I look forward to our reunion in heaven.

Connie and I met in the early eighties. We were in a fashion show together ( one of many). I was going through some problems and was drawn to share my burden with Connie, a God thing in more ways than one! We have been close friends since. Connie and Bernie even introduced John and me. She shaped my life in wonderful ways that I could not begin to express. We would laugh and cry together, share and encourage each other. She is with our Lord now and we are left with beautiful memories. I love you Connie, we will met again❤.

My Grandmother was the sweetest person I knew. She had a love for Jesus like no other. She was unique in every way possible. Every person that walked into her life, she left her footprint. I will never forget the time when we were driving up the mountains when I was a young child and my ears started popping, as I was crying, she pulled off the side of the road and prayed with me. Or the time you told me not to touch the cookie pan in the oven, oh how I regretted not listening to you. Grandma, thank you for always being the light in my life through the good & the bad. You were an angel in disguise and I am so thankful that God blessed me with a Grandmother like you. ♥️
