Connie was an amazing woman and loved by so many. My heart truly goes out to everyone mourning her loss, especially when Jerry passed only a few months before her. I truly believe they are together again on the other side. And while that doesn’t make the loss any less difficult, we can at least take comfort in the fact that they have each other again. Sending lots of love and hugs to everyone. Connie we love you and will miss you dearly ❤️
