Connie and I formed a friendship through our volunteer positions with the SPCA and our Love of cats. We never failed to have lively and joyful discussions about our own cats and the cats we cared for at the SPCA. I always enjoyed encountering her while shopping at Wegman's when she was usually dashing to or from another activity in her busy life. She was a joy to know.

To all of you my deepest sympathy. I am very pleased to have been a friend of Connie's and I especially remember, among things, her being a movie buddy. She was always up for a movie and a conservation about a book. My thoughts are with you all. Love, Kathy Kubala

Bob, Daniel,Susan and Glenn: What can be said except that Mont and I always felt a special bonding to Connie. Whether it was at Church, Book Club, or just those special meals which we shared with her and of course Bob. We know her spirit will always be with us, and certainly we will remember her Spirit, Honesty, Insight, Laughter, and special thoughts she shared with us whether in a group setting or one-on-one. Unfortunately the last couple of years our health wasn't cooperating with any of us. However I will always remember her kind words to me upon finding out about my health situation. She and I had a special privacy about how we were feeling, but I know I kept her in my thoughts as her disease progressed, never thinking she would pass on before me and many others. Mont certainly felt a special extra appreciation because of her love and care for animals. To all of you our deepest sympathy. However, as difficult as it is for all of you, she finally is at peace. Of course we will see you at her Memorial, if that is what is decided upon. If not let her Spirit remain with all of you. She was a very special person in our lives. And of course Bob we will be in touch, but if you need anythig, please do not hesitate to call.

How lucky for me to know Connie, to be included in wonderful St. Pat's corned beef and cabbage dinners, Christmas Eves at the Rue, and after Thanksgivings at Dan's. Funny, smart, kind, generous, a lover of the arts, animals and tulips in the spring...is how I remember her. My sympathy, friendship and love to the whole family.
