Connie I am going to miss you dearly, but more than anything I will miss your phone calls. We would call one another and chat for hours about our life's & family. I can still remember the day you asked me where I was working and I told you I was a caregiver for Home Instead, you told that I should apply at Visiting Angels, well I took your advice and I did apply and they had me a client the next day!
Your beautiful smile could light up any room. I remember running into at King Soopers by my house about 2 yrs ago I was so happy to see you, we started chatting and laughing. Thank you Connie for your special friendship.

Connie was a wonderful caregiver for us at Visiting Angels. She was also one of the warmest, most caring human beings that I have ever known. All of us here at Visiting Angels were truly blessed to work with her, and she will be missed very much.

I just received the News yesterday while I was at work. I am so Heart Broken to here this news. The Memory I have in my head as a young child was how Beautiful she was. She always had perfect makeup and awesome hair and dressed perfect. Her personality was so Bubbly and Kind. I called her from Florida about two years ago and asked her about my Grand Parents/her Mom and Dad’s ancestry. She spoke with me and my son Christopher and gave us valuable information. I know she loved her children and her amazing Husband her Partner and Best Friend Richard. I knew she loved her brothers and sisters especially her sister Marci. I wish I could have been there to say goodbye today. Much Love Holly and Christopher

With her radiant smile, sparkling eyes, and always kind and sweet personality, Aunt Connie was a positive light wherever she was. That's how I remember her from when I was a kid, and every time I've had the pleasure to see her since. That will be the memory of her that carries on in my heart.
