Terry and Family: She was a wonderful friend--so loving and caring. I will miss her and her sweet smile. Hugs to all of you.

My heart was definitely heavy laden and filled with much sorrow as I read of the passing of a dear fellow classmate from the Class of '65. Connie was unlike so many other members of our class--she was caring, loving, generous, humble, modest, sincere, and always accepting of those who did not fit into the numerous cliques that permeated PAHS. I can still see her sparkling eyes and hear her laughter. She will be sorely missed for all the love she exuded. May God comfort you, Terry, and your children, and may He grant you peace as you deal with Connie's absence.

Jody R. Miller

To Terry and Family:
When your work is gone,
Your course on earth is run,
May it be said,"Well Done",
Be thou at peace.
God Speed Connie.

Dear Terry and family,
Sally joins me in sending our heartfelt sympathy and our love to you, your children and families. A last farewell to such a wonderful lady, wife, mother and friend is a heart ache for those who knew her and difficult to bear for those closest to her. Knowing that others also loved Connie does little to ease your pain, but it may help that you know her loss is felt by so many.
