    Thoughts and prayers to your family. All the puzzles we shared and tackled together at the senior center will be our forever memory. Doing puzzles won’t be the same without you. God’s blessings to you all.

    We are both saddened by the loss of Aunt Connie. I have many wonderful memories of growing up with her and Uncle Bud, we knew that going to their house meant Fun! They too were always wonderful and welcoming to Rodney when he joined our family. We now send our love and prayers to our family and rejoice that she is in the presence of Jesus. God bless all my cousins, Kirsten and Rodney Phillips

    Mrs. Smith, Connie, or Mom, you will be missed terribly. I have many happy memories of spending my childhood at your home, swimming in your pool and hanging out with my best friend, your daughter, Debbie and tothis day we are still best friends, imagine that? You were always like a second mother to me and I will always love and miss you! Wish I had time to say goodbye and thank you for all you did for me. Judy, the wop, from down the street!!
