A woman of your great heart, grace and beauty inside and out will be greatly missed. You always had a smile on your face and a kind word for others no matter what you were going through. I know you are dancing in heaven painfree and waiting for the rest of us. So glad to have had the privilege of knowing you. Just wish I could have had more time with you. If there is anything I can do please let me know.

Heaven truly gained an angel. Aunt Connie had a great sense of humor and a laugh that will be missed! I know she will be up there with my dad keeping an eye out for everyone down here, and I pray that our family and her friends find peace in this difficult time. She will forever live on in our hearts. Rest easy!

What can I say about my sister. We experienced a lot of things together. She was the outgoing one. People liked her, she was very pretty. Has beautiful children and grandchildren who I know she was proud of.
We didn’t see each other much when we got older but we still loved each other.
I am looking forward to see her again as God has promised in the future my favorite scripture John 5:28,29.
Love you Connie 😘😘😘😘
Your Sis Karen
