  2. With an aching heart for a wonderful women I send my condolence . Connie had a way to make every one she talked to feel better about themselves and they would always leave with a smile on their face. I am happy to say I am one of those people. I always enjoyed seeing her come in to work because I always knew I would have a good laugh and the night would be a whole lot better because of her company. She had a way of lighting up a room when she entered it. I will miss her .To here family and Murray I send my love .There’s a hole in the heart that can only be filled with the memories of the one that has past, But she will never be completely gone from the people who knew and loved her because of those memories.

  6. Bonnie Munroe Hickey :

    My sincere condolences to you, Bob, Marj and Kathy, at your mom’s passing. Connie always made me feel like I was an extra special person. She nicknamed me Barney when I was about 6 years old, and although I pretended to hate the name, I was secretly pleased every time she called me Barney because then she’d laugh. I loved her laugh. I’m sad that I am not able to be there with you today. I would have enjoyed hearing all the stories that began with, “Remember the time that Connie….”
