  1. What a beautiful picture of Connie. My thoughts and prayers are with all her friends and family. Rest in peace, my friend.

  2. There are a few people in my life that I am truly happy to see and Connie was always one of those people. I will never know a more caring person. She once remarked after we had not seen each other in a while that it was nice that we could talk like we see each other every day. Looking back that had everything to do with her. I miss you so much already. If there is a heaven you are definitely there right now. May you rest in peace and thank you for giving me that first ride to school so long ago.

  3. A beautiful Woman with a beautiful smile. Loved her singing and dancing and her helpful words in times of need. Her love spread out to others especially those with special needs. Wish I could have said goodbye and I love you one more time. She will always be in my heart and always on my mind. She was a great Aunt to me and a wonderful mother to her children who she loved with all her heart. God has her now and now she is at peace. It was just too soon for us at home where we thought we had more time,but god has a plan and Connie was on his mind. Love you Connie always and Forever.

  4. I am so saddened to have lost you and not being able to say goodby. I will always cherish the fun times we had together and how you could always make me laugh until I cried. You will always hold a special place in my heart and I will think of you always. I miss you. Rest in peace Connie, I love you.

  5. We are so sorry for your loss. Connie was such a wonderful person and always so happy every time we were at a gathering where she was. We have our memories of Connie at football parties and Halloween parties that we will never forget. She will be greatly missed. Connie and all her family will be forever in our thoughts, prayers and our hearts.

    That picture is exactly how I remember Connie – always smiling- and always taking care of us. She had the biggest heart of anyone I have known. I am so sorry for your loss. I’m sure she will be missed by many. Someday we hope to come back to Ashland and visit the little blue house. God’s peace to you all.
