  • I can’t imagine the pain you all are feeling and nothing I say I will ever make that pain go away…Connor was taken way too early but I guess god couldn’t wait to have him in his presence..no that whenever your thinking if him he’s probably right beside you without you seeing him but in sure you’ll feel his wonderful presence..no parent should bury there child any I’m so sorry for your guys loss

  • A dear little angel. So beautiful. Conner and Jeff will now be together forever

  • I’m at a loss of words right now because god has chosen such a young angel. I’ve had luxury of knowing Connor for about three months driving school buses and am very saddened by this. Connor was a polite, rambunctious, silly and kind hearted lil man. Every time picking him up for school I’d see his smiling…whatever kind of bad mood I was in that smile always made my day. I remembered the first few weeks he’d have the cutest little Mohawk. I thank God that I was able to experience such a great little boy and I will miss him so much. My heart goes out to the parents. I’m very sorry for your loss!!!
