    So sorry to hear of Connie’s passing. I believe she is happy and glorifying God in Heaven with her Savior, however, the ones left behind are left to grieve even as you remember and celebrate her life. Even though I only knew Connie briefly while at York College, I am feeling a sense of loss, so I can only imagine the terrible loss her family and close friends are feeling. Other than Scripture, Randy Alcorn’s book entitled Heaven has always helped me in times of grief.

    I am praying the the God of all comfort, bring peace to you and smiles as you recall those special times. Lord, come quickly, so we can all be reunited.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. Every time I would see Connie she had a smile on her face and was giving out cards she had made. I have all of them she made for me. I will cherish her cards always.

    Brent and I are so sorry to hear of Connie’s passing. Brent and I started our family along with Tim and Connie living on the same block in new Minnix home in the 70’s. We all had our lives in front of us. After many years and little contact with each other I will always cherish our knowing each other and being family! Thinking of you Tim and family!!!
