Connie was my sister. When she lived in Boise she and Jim spent a lot of time with us when I was growing up. I have very fond memories of Connie and all her pets, especially her dog Otis, an Old English Sheepdog that was best friends with our Basset Hound. I remember taking my kids to ride on her horse and how much she enjoyed sharing that experience with us. I remember spending time with her during my lunch hours when I worked near her home and just talking. Connie had such a great love for animals and it seemed that every time I talked to her after she moved away she had found another one to bring into her home. They were lucky to have found her. Her homes were always decorated beautifully and she had the neatest things throughout her house. Although I never saw her home in Ozark I am sure it was much the same as the homes she had here in Boise. She had a flare for decorating for sure. I am glad that Connie and I had the opportunity recently to reconnect and I enjoyed emailing and texting her as well as an occasional phone conversation. Connie was always supportive and kind to me and I will miss her.
