I just found out about Connee's passing and am so very sorry. Connee was a beloved cousin; and she and Freddie were always wonderful to me! Although I have many memories of her, one of my favorites is when she took me to a rehearsal of "The Unsinkable Molly Brown," in which she was singing. We had so much fun in between the times she had to be on stage! She and Freddie also took care of me for a week when I was 5 and my mother (Dora) was undergoing cancer treatments in Colorado Springs. She drove me to school; and she and Freddie were so kind and caring to me! They helped make that week for a scared 5-year-old who was away from home for the first time and whose mother was ill a happy one that was filled with fun. I will never forget that! I will also always appreciate her sharing Paolino family information and pictures with me, too! How special she was! I loved her dearly and will miss her very much!!
