    Grew up with Connie since childhood, she was a good neighbor, dear friend and was like a dear sister to me. Wish we could have spent more time together in our later yrs but everyone chooses a path to follow later in life. Looks like Connie chose a good path to follow, a loving husband, loving children and many, many friends along the way. Wish I had the opportunity to meet Doug and the children but never got that chance. I wish sincere blessings to the family and to my other so called sisters, Kathy, Marie, Sharon, Julie, Brenda, and Lisa, I love you all the same and have never forgotten any of you along my path. Connie, I am going to miss you girl, you have always held a special place in my heart. Until we meet again.
