    Connie and I have been best friends since 7th grade. Our lives took different roads once we graduated, but our friendship has always been one of those, that even if it had been years, we always picked up as if it was only yesterday. She always spoke so highly of her family. She may be gone from us physically, but she will forever be in the hearts of all who loved her. May God’s love guide her family through this great loss. RIP my dear friend. Marie

    Mom, I know I always used to tell you this but thank you for all you did for myself and my family. You were always so quick to jump and help us when needed. Teagan and Emersyn will greatly miss their grandmother along with Melanie and I. Words can’t explain how deeply hurt I am loosing not only my mother but my best friend. I find peace within myself knowing that you are in a better place now. RIP mom. I love you.

    My relationship with Connie was at work at ECE. She was in personnel (that mysterious department that held a myriad of secrets about us). Sometimes she did not seem approachable and rumor always made it more so. But I remember going to her office after eight years at ECE, ready to hang it up. She counseled me and I ended up staying. I appreciated that she believed in me though we hardly knew one another.

    Connie, if you get to read these tributes, thanks for good counsel and would you greet Doug Severson from me? In a work situation, when we spend so many years together, really the best part of so much of our lives, we become more like family than family in some ways.
