We are so sorry for your loss. We did not know Constance, but she raised a wonderful son in you Tim, and we are so grateful and thankful to have you in our lives. Your mother was clearly a great lady, and an animal lover, as our whole family is, and your family must have some truly special memories of her. Love all the great photos that have been put up to see! Please know we are thinking of you and your family at this difficult time. With sympathy and love, Tom, Laura, Amanda, Neal, Emily, Daniel and Josephine.

Dear Cathy, Scott and Tim,

Your mom's death comes as a shock to me, as I remember Connie as the "Iron Lady". She was strong, and capable of handling almost any situation, whether it was a child's complex health problem, a dying husband's needs, or the strenuous, constant work of caring for her boarded horses.

She leaves behind you three -wonderful examples of everything she stood for ( strong work ethics, love of animals, and loving hearts.)

She will be sorely missed !!

Love,
Aunt Carla
