    Dear FAMILY of Connie,
    So many, many memories of Connie–all wonderful. Her beauty, of course, but it was not only her outer, physical beauty, but even more importantly and more lasting was her inner
    beauty: her deep faith in God; her love for all of the family, dear Leo, “you guys”, so near and dear to her heart: Ernest, Dennis, and Stephen; her precious grandchildren: Cassie, Breona, Nikki, Dylan, Lucas, Kyana, and Kai; and her wonderful great grandsons: Jaden,
    Will, and Miles:>) Connie’s love was so great that it spread to friends, some from her girl-hood and school years. Looking back at her education and her volunteer work, it’s easy to see that Connie loved all of God’s people, especially any that were troubled, broken, poor, or confused.

    Each of you have truly been blessed by God with the presence and example of your Mom, Grandma, and Great Grandma in your lives!! You may get many graces from God through her, in return for the devotion, care, and love you poured out on her over the past
    years—especially the past months!! (Yes, of course, the orange toenails, too, Cassie and Breona:>) May her awesome example of living inspire each one of you for ages to come!

    We love you very much, each one of you, and we pray for you often. Remember, we are
    just a phone call and a couple hours away.
    Love and prayers,
    Uncle Tom and Aunt Pat
