Hello Scott & Sharlene,

Your mom Connie was so sweet and she was an awesome friend to me. I loved your whole family. Your Granddad who we called Red was so special to our family. My grandmother adored him. Your great-grandmother and grandmother would sit at the kitchen table during breakfast after I spent many nights with Carol. She was one of my very best friends. Your family had a very special bond showing love to all. They welcomed me in their home so many times. I can still hear the laughter from them all. Your mom was very special and I will miss her kindness and sincerity. She was very proud of you when she spoke of you both. I am sending my love & prayers for your loss. I know your mom and Carol are dancing in heaven today! I see your family all together today as well. May God Bless you today and the days to come.
