Rest now, Connie. Know that you have been a great source of comfort and inspiration to us all. You will be greeted in heaven as a good and faithful servant. I pray your family and friends receive comfort and peace in this difficult time. You will never be forgotten but always missed.
Thank you, Connie. For all your encouragement. For your simple wisdom. For your single minded perseverance in times of trouble. For seeking out those who were hurting and letting them know they were not alone.
I am one whose life is forever changed by your help on this forum. Were it not for you and others like David and Ziffle and MamaLama and Mae be Here, I would never have had the courage to try and live alone while fighting HE and Hep C. My courage comes directly from this forum, without it I would be adrift in a sea of faces who do not understand.
Yes I realize I'm speaking as though she were still here. That's because I believe she will always be with us as her spirit lives on in the lives she has changed.
Yes, just rest now, Connie. Let the angels minister to your soul as you ministered to the weak. May God Bless You and Your Family ... and give great peace.
My love to all of you who knew her personally and who had more time with her ... my deepest sympathies. A very sad day.
