    JOHN & Family: I still can’t believe that our Connie is no longer with us. She was one of the nicest & kindest people I have ever known. So many little things meant so much to her and she always wanted to share something new with you. such as the Lip Pencil she gave me, She just happened to have two. My little silver watch, that I still wear every single day. The notes she wrote to me in regards to her home. We had many wonderful days dsciding about just the right things for your lovely home and it always turned out to be as lovely & pretty as she was. I’ll think of all of you tomorrow, wish I could be there Hugs & Love Pat
