Condolences to Jim and his cousins. Connie was like a mother to me. We shared memories of our Nursing careers and I admired her no nonsense approach to life’s persistent questions. Rest In Peace, Connie.

Jim there is so much I could say about your Mom. She was a special lady, a wonderful neighbor and always pleasant with a warm smile and a kind word. I have seen her in the past year and she still had a good memory. She would ride by and check out her Brookhaven house. She lived a full life and will be missed. You are in my thoughts for your loss Jim.

Hi Shirley, I’m only just now noticing that I can reply to your message. Thank you for the kind words. I hope you are doing well.
