Connie was a lover of ALL animals and spent many hours watching her birds and squirrels and loving on her cats and dogs. She was also a lover of music and spent many of her last moments singing old songs with her children at her bedside and reliving some of the best memories of her life in the process. These are the moments we will cherish! A private family gathering will be held at a later date and Connie's cremains will be scattered at some of her most loved locations.
