  2. My deepest sympathy to all of Connie’s family. Connie was a nice lady. I will always remember her. Prayers sent to you all as you say good bye to your mom, grandma, sister, aunt and friend.

  3. I am sorry to read of your loss. How comforting it is to know that Jehovah understands our pain and provides the comfort that we so sorely need. (Acts 9:31)

  4. My deepest sympathies over the loss of Connie. No person can ever prepare themselves for the feelings of loss that can come when our loved ones leave us. Please know that these feelings are temporary and will soon be replaced with wonderful and happy memories. The comfort from the scriptures can help during this difficult time. John 5:28,29 “for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.” Knowing that we can see our loved ones again in a future paradise free form the effects of ill health and suffering certainly warms our heart. Please accept my deepest sympathies. Dave
