Carl,Clay & Leigh, I am so sorry for your loss! I have known Connie for many years and considered her one of my sweet friends. I really got a little closer to her when she helped me with the process of becoming a volunteer at the Safe House! She really had a huge heart and it really showed! I know she is at peace now and reunited with her love ones! We love you all and you are all in our prayers at this time!
