Tom, I have so memories of growing up with Connie on Ferris Ave. Walking to school together, go to Calf Pasture Beach, going to Rye Beach, you and Connie getting engaged and then your beautiful wedding. I was honored to be part of your wedding party. There are just so many memories, and at the moment it is hard to even think I will not hear from her again. My prayers are with you and your family.
Blessings to you,
