We are so sad to hear that Connie has passed away and that we didn't attend her services. She was a sweet and kind lady. She was a wonderful friend to our Mom Mary. They played bingo for years and years and were such close friends. Now they are together again with their husbands and family and playing bingo in heaven. Keeping all of the Patton Family in our thoughts and prayers.
