June 08, 2019 "I met Connie Hawkins in the Flagstaff Az hospital. Two of my small grandchildren were there at the time and the old time Phoenix Suns players were visiting the pediatric ward to boost the kids spirits. I had been a long time basketball fan and Connie was, and still is, my favorite player. He was signed with the Suns the year I graduated high school so I felt like I knew him. He gave my grand son a Suns pennant and signed it right there. He and I chatted for several minutes then they had to leave. Needless to say, that pennant did not go home with my 4 year old grand son. I kept it all those years and gave it to my adult grandson on the day that Connie died and told him the story of Connie and how much that felt pennant meant to me. It is now proudly displayed in my grandsons family room. Thank you Connie, so much, for the wonderful man you were!! Rest well my friend.
