    I am just now learning that Connie is in her heavenly home. I knew her through the EB Friends page form years ago. We sure had a lot of fun there in Viv’s virtual kitchen. She loved her family so much! Fond memories are never forgotten. Rest In Heaven Connie!

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Although I never actually met Connie in person, she was one of a few online friends I claimed as my bff. We met through Farmville via her pastor whom is a lifelong friend from high school. Connie was my consummate debate buddy in the best of terms. We were opposites when it came to politics but her humor, wit, and willingness to listen opened the flood gates to shared loving moments, family and endearing faith. Her absence is deeply felt in my heart. She made a positive impact in my life and I considered her a valued support no matter where we fell on the political divide because we had a shared value of improving the lives of others and shining a light on children.
