Condolence & Memory Journal


Connie was a dear friend and mentor of mine. She taught me how to cook Mexican food over thirty years ago. When I had a question about Gods word she was right there opening her bible with prayer and teaching me things I didn't understand. I loved how she could pray with so much passion and love. I use to tell her she was a spitfire. Connie always made you feel loved and she would go the extra mile for you. I still have the Bible she gave me so many years ago. You will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers to her sweet gentle husband who gives the best hugs in the world. Connie was the best, my dear sweet friend.

It has been so long since we seen Connie, although we don't live that far away. She was our best neighbor when we first got married and lived in the apartments in Pigeon by the red light. Wished we could of seen her one more time but our memories will always be there. She was one sweet lady. God be with you.
