Gina, so sorry for the loss of your mother. I knew your parents and grandparents through the Two Mile community - your grandparents lived right down the road from our house. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
With deepest sympathy,
Judy (Hughes) Knight

Prayers for you Gena and your family. We all loved your mother, she was so good to our family when our parents were alive and they really thought a lot of your mother and your father. We all have fond memories of the good times that we all had in the past with our parents and their friends. We loved your family like ours and we will continue to pray for you and your family. You have another Special Angel watching over you and will be by your side always.
Renee Hilger, Prissy, and Billy Horne- I am sure Mom and Dad and your Dad and Bobby welcomed her and probably had a shrimp, fish cookout as soon as she got there.

Connie was a devoted wife, caring mother and kind friend. She always showed she cared about everyone she knew. You could talk to her about anything. My favorite times spent with her were discussing the Bible which she loved. I will miss her but look forward to seeing her again in the resurrection. My heart goes out to Gina and Stephen who she cherished so much.
