    I"m truly sorry to hear of Connie's death. I was married to her late cousin Joey Williams. Connie and I never got to meet in person, but we became good Facebook friends. Joey thought the world of her.

    My condolences to the Holland family. Connie was such a wonderful woman who shared love of family. She loved her boys and grandchildren. They meant everything to her. I'm so sorry to see her go, but I know she is with her King and no longer in pain. May you find comfort in your time of grieving.
