Dear Phillip and Family, I am so sorry to hear of Connie's untimely death. I was a good friend of hers and worked with her for many years at Hanover Shoe. We had some great times together. She will be missed. She had a great personality and was always friendly and jovial. May God comfort you at this time. With Deepest Sympathy, Kim
