Aunt Connie will be missed very much. How I can remember the times as a child when we would all gather as a family the food and fellowship. I will say her chocolate pies was the best in the world. I was very blessed recently by Aunt Connie, even though her physical body would not allow her to travel for my wedding in October she did send me one of the most precious gifts that will be cherished for years to come and heirloom that can be passed on along with the stories. I know that there was reunion like no other in heaven on the day she left her earthly body, and one day we will see each other again. Love you Aunt Connie, thank you for all the memories.

So many memories that I will cherish....this picture is from last Thanksgiving. She loved beating the great grandchildren in Chinese Checkers. Nana was one of my most favorite people. We shared alot of talks. She prayed for all of us up until her last day. We will miss you so much but we all know that you are in a much better place. You can breath again, take walks, sew, and plant flowers and gardens. Love you more!!!

We miss you already. I can't believe you are not with us anymore. I know that you are rejoicing in heaven right now. We had great talks while walking , swinging or on the phone. I love you very much. You still had a sense of humor up to the end. Thank you for all your prayers for me and my family. I wouldn't be where I am today without your prayers.
Love you
Jon, Julie and the kids.

That was the first time he got to meet her and he walked over, sat on her lap and started eating pineapple. You couldnt help but just love her as soon as you met her. We love you and Miss you so much Grandma.❤
