Marsha, Aubrey, Levi and John- Please know as you suffer through your grief, Connie has touched the lives of so many who were blessed to know her. She passed through this world and left each of us with a smile and uplifted heart because that's who she was. My heart aches for all of you, and I don't have the words to express the love and loss we all share. I can see her smiling face as she makes that final ride to her eternal home. I can hear her saying "I'll hold the gate open for you.' I love you, my dear old friend. Until we meet again.......
Thoughts and prayers!
When we were young, Connie and I worked at the hospital. I believe that is where we first met. I thought she was so beautiful and quickly learned that her personality was even more beautiful. Through the years, she was always the kind of person that you could enjoy a conversation with when we would happen upon each other. Always a feel good to see her smile! Love, peace, and prayers, for all who will grieve her earthly loss.
Our hearts are broken for you John, and to all of the family. We are sorry we were unable to come to the services due to being on a road trip to Wyoming and Colorado. Please accept our condolences.❤️
