Dear Aunt Connie,
It's been awhile since we last saw each other.  I will always remember you as the one who really resembled my father, your brother, Bob and as the very kind and soft spoken woman who loved her children very much.  You had a beautiful smile.  Please give my mom and dad a hug for me.  Rest in peace and know that you are loved.

     Connie, you are one of the most loving and tolerant people I have EVER had the pleasure of befriending. You were there more times for me, unknown to others, even, than I can count.  I remember all of the little talks we had, and how you ALWAYS made me feel better. You gave birth to 3 children who followed in your footsteps, never judgemental, always in good spirits and I am proud to have known each of them, as well.  You are loved by many, and could make people laugh easily around you. Bertie, Gary, and Lori, you were all blessed with a wonderful Mom!  Hold her up in honor and celebrate her special life. My thoughts and prayers go with each of you in this time. God bless you all.

Even though, we are sad, we are also very thankful for the your having been our mom.  YOU ARE THE VERY BEST.
You are all I had as a little kid and I will remember the way you loved then and now.

By the way, give everyone a big hug and kiss for us.
