Connie and I were good friends back in 1st grade, then kinda lost touch in later years and not in same classes but it was always so fun to run into each other. I loved her smile and fun ways. It was great to talk to her at the tire shop. I so wish I had done it more. I had just been wondering about her, then I read of her death. Life is hard as we get older. Prayers for you David, children and grandchildren and other family and friends.
I didn’t know you but the love I hear and the memories shared by Stephanie let me know that you are were a sweet woman and will be dearly missed by many. Peace in the arms of Jesus.
