A friend you were
To such as me
Then Fate took you
So suddenly
I will remember the friendship
That was ours
Each time I see
The shining stars

We always had a blast at work. Would get her snorting with laughter, even after she left the HQ to work at 596th. We always had such great banter and whenever either one of us were down we could bring the other up. I will truly miss you Coni.

This woman trained me at SDDC then became my sister. We’ve always kept up with each other and she was always the sweetest soul I have ever known. You don’t have to hurt anymore, Coni. Enjoy your rest. I will miss you deeply!
