Our condolences to Bob, Brandon and Kristi, Connie was a wonderful lady and a great neighbor. We all loved her, and she was so good to our kids, especially when our youngest "conveniently" forgot het house key and Connie would feed her fresh warm tortillas.

So sorry for the loss of your family member and friend.
We have much to look forward to. In Revelation 21:4 the Bible tells us " And he will wipe our every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away".
