    Dear family, What a precious lady! Her faith in God and her love for Him was evident. And the depth of love she had for her family was second only to her love for her Savior. She also had a great sense of humor and never met a stranger. Our son and her son were and still are the best of friends, and in high school he pretty much stayed at their house...and I thank her and Ralph for having a home where the door was always open. Thank God we don’t have to grieve as those who have no hope. For our hope is in Him, and family you will see her again.

    To the families of Connie Holland; It is with my deepest sympathies to each and everyone of you. I was a co worker who drove a school bus at the Murrayville Elem. and Laney High School with her. Connie loved the Lord and she would come to my bus while waiting on the students and share or faith, burdens and our love for our families and the Lord. We would lift each other up and pray together. She was my dear friend and I will never forget her.
