I will certainly miss Connie very much. She was the best host mom one could ever ask for. To me she was always a good teacher and a very insightful and erudite person. I feel really fortunate to have known and been with her. I am sorry I never had the chance to go back to visit her after leaving Ann Arbor 7 years ago. My plan to pay her a surprise visit next year would just never happen :(
As far as I had known her, Connie was a true "giver," not only to human fellows but also to animals and the environment. We have lost such a beautiful person. My heartfelt sympathy goes to Dan and Laura, who survive her. My memories of beloved Connie will long be cherished. No matter where you are, I hope you are happy and at peace, always.
