    Connie was such an inspiration to me while I attended Spanish Fort United Methodist Church. Loved
    seeing her when I would go into the office where she served as secretary and she was always so helpful
    and pleasant. We shared many stories and moments together. Connie loved her family and was very
    proud of them. While I was there Pam was in preschool and was just a delight. My only regret is after I
    returned back to Alabama, I only saw her once when I returned but I thought of her very often. I know she
    will be missed by her family and friends but she is in her new home now and so we can be happy for her.
