assemble puzzles with her, and pray and care for her in her final days. She was so grateful for all of you.
Connie maintained her beautiful smile and a peaceful and happy demeanor right up until the end, never
once complaining.
Connie’s faith could not be shaken and she was confident of where she was going when her life came to
an end.
“There is only one way to God. That way is through His son. Jesus paid it all! I am confident in my
Salvation. I know where I will go when I die. I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and what he has done
for me! He is my hope and salvation. I TRUST HIM! I was taught in VBS and Sunday School. I
learned about Jesus and what he has done for me. I then invited Jesus into my heart and asked him
to be Lord of my life. He promised to forgive me and to be with me FOREVER!!!! I’m just a simple
woman, loved by God. I am a child of God. I am a lamb of God. Thank God, I have HIM!!!! I could
not go on without HIM!!!!”
