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.

To Terry and Family:

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.
