    Connie is no longer in pain nor is she suffering. She has gone home to reunite with mama and Jehovah God. Always remember that. They are watching over you all. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Love you. Take care of yourselves during this time of grieving.

  2. Sincere condolences to the entire family. May God continue to surround you with His Devine presence not only in your time of sorrow but in your strengths and days to come as well “HE KNOWS ALL AND HE KNOWS WHATS BEST FOR EACH OF YOU”…remember THE SUN WILL COME OUT TOMORROW, THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS “CONNIE IS A PART OF IT NOW”…
    Love you guys, Coach
