Peggy and Family- I was so saddened to read of Connie’s passing today. He was such a lovely, smart, talented gentleman and neighbor. I am so happy peggy; you found one another in sixth grade and in middle age again. It’s amazing how our primary school years leave a lasting imprint in our lives! May you find peace in the knowledge and understanding of your everlasting love.
With Heartfelt Sympathy and Prayers,
