Connie and Steve and family, I am so sorry for this untimely loss. I have no words to ease your pain. Only know that friends are thinking of you now with much sympathy and love. It was always a happy time to see you Connie, in the halls of "our" little hospital, for so many years after high school. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
