    Dear Family,
    Connie was the sweetest most energetic person I had ever met. Bill and I loved visiting with her and Howard. The food (cookies) was always wonderful, and the conversation lively and fun. I truly miss them both, and hope Bill is now enjoying them in Heaven. She raised three fine young men. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love, Cindy
