I am so sorry for your loss. I know there are no words to ease the pain you experience from a loss of someone you love. I does help to know that someone cares. I don’t think I ever saw Connie without a smile on her face.

Condolence from Jeff Barnes and family on June 2nd, 2020 7:46 pm

Sending our deepest sympathies. One verse I can remember that meant a lot to me when I lost my Dad was this, “Those we love and lose are always connected by heartstrings into infinity.” by Terri Guillemets. May those heartstrings always bring you love and comfort with your memories of your mother.
