  6. Ronnie, I was so shocked when I heard about Connie's passing. I'm so very sorry, wish I could have been nearer to home to visited. You take care, I know how you are feeling right now, it does get better with time, always remember what great times you had, and know she is in a better place, hard to believe I know right now, but she is.always,Marcene

  7. Ronnie and family, You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this time. Jeanie Stevens

  8. We wanted to let the family know how much it meant to us both to see how supportive Ronnie and the rest of his family was to Connie. Since we didn't live close enough to get to know them better, it was very comforting to see during the days before and on the day of her funeral. We will pray for each of you during this time and enjoyed getting to visit with you that day.Love, Joe and Norma

  9. Connie, it is really sad that we were so close at one time just like sisters and we let ourselves drift apart. I will always love you from the bottom of my heart. I Love YouJimmeye

  10. Like my daughter Erin, who God chose to return to Heaven at the age of 16, He also chose Connie at an early age. Know that her work with Him has just begun, but know that each of your will feel her presence from above as she continues to do His work to help many.
