  • So very sorry to read this. Connie and I grew up together. She was my next door neighbor. We had many adventures together. Slept in her car at the beach ( powder blue thunderbird) and was with her when I had my first drink. We were good friends and had a lot of laughs together. I had not seen her since 1975 as our marriages took us to different states. She was always adventuresome and took me, a shy girl, under her wings. Lots of good memories. She was a great girl. I am so sorry Roxanne and Len. Sorry to hear your folks are also gone. Loved my talks with your mom. Loving prayers for you both. CAROL
