I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother was a very beautiful, sweet, and fun lady. It was a privilege to have gotten to meet her and get to know a little bit of what a fun-loving, wonderful woman she was.

All my love and prayers to you and your family.

I didn't know Connie, but I worked with her daughter Ashley and she will always have a special place in my heart. She was obviously a very special woman because her daughter is one of the kindest human beings I have ever known. I'm so sorry for your loss, Ashley.
