I am so sorry to hear of Connie's passing. I remember traveling by motorcycle with her brother Larry Prindle from Rochester, NY to Pa for a wedding- and I was so uncomfortable on the back of Larry's Harley Sportster! However, I was so in love with him it did not matter. I had no idea he passed as well. I remember the party in Connie's house, and Watson's garage next door. It feels like yesterday.... Miss everyone and am mourning your loss 2 years later.

I was sorry to learn of Connie's passing. She and I had a lot of fun when our children were little before I moved from the area. June and Henry, may you always remember the good times you had with your mom.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Connie was like a second mother to me years ago when I hung out with my best friend Jane. Now they are together again as God's angels.
