Connie was a Ophthalmic Assistant for me while I was working at VisionWorks in St. Petersburg FL. She was always a very conscientious and careing person. Bob work at the social security office and would occationally bring me great cigars. I miss them both very much. The world needs more genuine people like Bob and Connie. My prays go out to to Bob and Connie and their family. You all are good people. God Bless

Didn't know Connie very well, but she was a very good friend to my mother. I know she will be dearly missed.

I have not known Connie only for a short visit. I strongly feel that we could have become very much closer over a period of time but, I will see her again on the other side.

Connie was a special friend and co-worker of mine at Visionworks Optical. She was a giving person, always ready to assist in any way she could. We stayed in touch via e-mail and shared may inspiriational thoughts. She touched my life in so many ways that I will never forget. I will truly miss her.
Please except my sympathy. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this sad time.

With deepest sympathy,

I met Connie and Bob at the medical clinic where
I worked in Sioux Falls, they were super special
people. I am so sorry for your loss, though we lost
contact she as been on my mind over the years and
she was a special lady, rest in peace Connie.

Connie was my best friend in the world and the only "sister" I ever had. She was a very important part of my life and will always be in my heart until we meet again. Love you girl!!!!!
