Was so sorry to hear about Connie. She and my Mom were wonderful friends and she was a special godmother. On my trips back to Nebraska, it was always a highlight to visit Connie and Jim. My thoughts and prayers for your family. May you all find comfort in many happy memories.

First time I met Connie, I called her Cornelia. She told me if I used that name she would kick me in the shin. Such a wonderful sense of humor. Connie & Jim were a joy to know. I am smiling thinking about the two of them together again, no pain, no illness, just love & peace.

My sympathy to family in the loss of your mother. I last saw your parents when they visited Peace Lutheran in Columbus for an anniversary celebration. I have wonderful memories of years back with our association at Peace Lutheran, and Connie and I were in an Extension club many years ago. We had many good times together. May you find peace in the precious promise of God's Work.

I received a letter of sympathy today and wanted to share what was written.
A light house in our storms - built on solid rock, that's a Grandma. She left that place for you to fill. A torn and wounded heart is held in the hand of God. He heals with love and memories. She wants you to smile again. Those who have gone before her are waiting. ... so is Jesus.
