    My condolences to all the family. I have known Connie since she was a girl and I was dating her older sister Beth. Her sister Ann and I have been friends for all that time. Though I have not stayed in touch with Connie she will always have a place in my heart.

    I am Jerry Tellman’s sister. I want to extend my sympathies to Connie’s family. I have known Connie for a number of years. Jerry shared some of the conversations he had with Connie with me which I enjoyed. It was obvious that Jerry was quite fond of Connie.
