Dear Newton Family,
I'm so sorry for your loss. Connie was an absolutely wonderful woman. She was always so cheerful and filled with smiles and laughter. She use to make my day when I was the activity director at Briarwood. She was the oldest woman I have ever met she will always have a special place in my heart.
