    I was so saddened to hear of Connies passing. I worked with her for many years. She was such a great person. She would always remember what was going on with people and ask them how they were.
    God’s speed Connie. You are missed!

    Cyndy and I were so shocked to hear of your Mom’s passing. God has called her home where she is part of that “Great cloud of witnesses” who have no more pain or tears. BUT remember she is keeping her eye on you and your brothers, and family. Especially the Grand Kids whom I know she loved very much. She’s leading the cheering section for you. The love she had for you on earth, is even more multiplied in heaven. And she will be there some day to welcome you home, because you will see her again, face to face. Until then, she will be missed.
