    Gary. Our hearts are breaking for you my dear cousin. Connie was one of those very special people that are really as great as they seem. I can't believe she is gone. At Easter this year we actually gone to sit and visit for awhile alone and she and I both commented it was great just to talk without distractions and really connect. Now I believe God gave us that time together to just enjoy each othets lives and I am so very grateful. We are so very sorry for your loss. We have all lost a beautiful bright light. Thankfully Jesus will allow us to all be together again. We are so very sorry and are praying for you. Love Laurie and chris

    I worked with Connie many years ago at Economy. It was my first job after college. Connie was such a great person and she will be missed by many. My prayers and hugs to her husband Gary and the rest of her family.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of Connie's family. We knew Connie as a small child, watched her grow, overcome many battles with cancer. Connie was always strong, positive, upbeat and caring about others. Will always cherish Connie and the beautiful memories we have of her.

    Heaven has gained a special angel. She was such a sensitive and caring friend and coworker. She took my daughter under her wing when she started with Met and was a wonderful influence.

    Gary,

    I am so sorry you lost Connie. When I met her, years ago, at our reunion, I could see the love between the two of you. You were so blessed to find your soulmate. Following you two on social media, your trips and boating with your beautiful Roxie, has been a joy. Know that her spirit is still with you and always will be. My thoughts and prayers for you and Roxie, and my deepest sympathy.

    Maggie Spriggs.

    I am really shocked to hear this sad news. Our hearts are breaking for you Gary & the entire family. You & Connie were such a perfect couple who I looked up to. You guys love each other immensely & it always showed. Connie & I worked together at MetLife for many years. She became more than a Co-Worker, she became my close friend for many years. I have many memories of her. Her laugh, our shopping trips & when we would meet one a week for our breakfast skillets before work. She was part of my family & saw my boys grow up. I was thinking about her a few weeks ago & was going to e-mail her. I wish I I would have & had one more time together with her. Though we lost touch for a bit, she will be truly missed & loved. I will always keep her in my heart & memories.
