    I only met Connie once – at the church service at The Maples, approximately one week before her passing. I found her to be delightfully friendly and thoughtful. I was looking forward to visiting with her again this past Sunday. I watched for her, and asked my mother if she knew if she was ok, or if she’d (perhaps) recuperated enough to go home. Now we know….. she had indeed started the journey home (to her mansion in Heaven). We rejoice that she’s completely healed and forever happy with her Savior, family, and friends. Prayers for your family as you grieve your loss I know you’ll cherish your memories of her until you’re reunited. I look forward to knowing her someday.
