I'm so very sorry for the loss of your mother, grandmother, aunt and sister. Aunt Connie was a wonderful woman and I'll always remember the Christmas dinners at their house so many years ago. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Our sympathy for your loss. We had many a good time with Connie. She was such a sweet lady. Will think of her every time I hear "On the road again, can't wait to get on the road again." She loved singing that when we were getting ready for a ride. Love to you all.

I knew your mother through Nelle Butterfield. She was a special lady who took such good care of Nelle for many years. We enjoyed talking at Nelle's table and she was always getting ready for a trip to West Va, a gambling trip or celebrating the holidays with all of you. She always talked about how important all of you were to her. I celebrate her life and send prayers for peace.

To all of you: Your Mom was a wonderful lady Oh did she know how to "control" us as kids. Connie was always the first to jump in to help someone, worked endless hours and still had time to give. A HUGE heart and loved life to the fullest. Everyone will miss her, yet she will always be alive in your heart through "the memories". I know she and your Dad are having a wonderful reunion. My sympathy goes out to each of you.
