    Connie is my first cousin, very close in age. I have so many good memories of growing up and visiting over the years, mostly at our grandparents’ home in Carthage, TN. What a bright light Connie had, and such a kind and compassionate heart. She loved art, learning about it, as well as drawing and painting. She loved looking after those who could not speak for themselves, and most of all she was passionate about her daughter and grandbabies. She was funny and sweet and humble, and would do anything to help someone. She had a deep sense of purpose and followed the Lord.
    I’m sending love and our heartfelt prayers to the family, both McKenzie’s family, Connie’s siblings, Renee and Bob and their families, and to my Aunt Peggy and Uncle Sammy. I know they will miss Connie so much. My brother, Michael, and sister, Terri, send their best wishes and love to all as well. We are very sorry not to be able to be with you all at the funeral, but are all inspired to find a way to get together soon. as always, Jackie
