To The Smith Family,
It seems as though we are continuing to say see you later to many family members. We are not family in the sense of being biologically related, but grew up in the same neighborhood, attended same schools, and loved and cared for each other as biologically related. Connell was that brother who wherever he saw you there was a hello, and a hug, asked if you needed anything, or if there was something he could do for you. We will miss Connell, and pray that he has received his reward for being faithful, good and most of all God loving. Our prayer is that his family continues to
be blessed, and as their guardian angel, he is blessed as well. Our sincere condolences to all of his family. God Bless,
Your Lincoln Estates Family,
Beverly,Bill, & Felton Sallet, Sr.
