    Connie was a childhood friend, and I regret not getting together more as we aged. I will miss her and all the fun times we had growing up and will remember her with wonderful memories. I know she is with her mom, dad and sister now in a paradise of God’s. Rest in peace

    I happened across this obituary while doing some research. I was moved and childhood memories were awakened, the memories of my cousin are rooted in my childhood, when her parents and older sister Patty would come to visit my family in Pueblo, Colorado – so long ago that time has erased many – but not those that you choose to hold on to. Connie had that magic! It was so long ago but when I looked at the photos, the memories of her smile and humor rushed back like a warm wave and made me smile. My childhood memories of her are those of a kind and loving older cousin who could make you laugh out loud. God bless and keep you smiling in heaven my dear sweet cousin.
