Our friendship started over 30 years ago and it developed into a Mother and daughter relationship. You were always there for us and everyone. In my eyes you were the best dispatcher and you cared for every Officer and their families. I'm going to miss you so much but I know you are no longer in pain, cancer free. Love you so much Mom.

I thought of you today but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday and the days before that to. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake from which I will never part. God has you in his arms. I have you in my heart. I love you Connie!

Jean and Family, I am shocked and saddened by this news and your loss. Connie and I worked together at the State Police for many years and I valued the friendship we built there. A soft, vulnerable heart made her strong woman - she will be missed. God's Grace to all of you.

For Connie :
May the lord rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back and the warm sun, shine on your face. May the gentle rain fall upon your feet. May GOD hold you in the palm of his hand until we meet again.

I will miss our friendship. Connie was the best I have known her for many years. And even when we hadn't seen each other for a time we just picked up and talked like sisters.

Praying for each and everyone of us who love Connie. She was a Jewel and my "sister". We were inseparable during our high school years and have kept in touch with each other after I moved from Roswell. Last time I saw Connie was at Mom's not to long ago. She was so upbeat and was gonna beat this terrible disease and I believed her. I texted her a couple weeks ago and when I didn't receive a reply this time I knew she was busy fighting. I truly never expected this terrible disease to take my "sister". I love her and will always miss her happy laugh and face! My sincere condolences.
