  3. My Condolence to the Dubois Family. Three years is short, but getting to know Connie (I had her permission to address her in that manner) while assisting her daily, was special. She spoke her mind and let the chips fall where they may.

  4. To Connie’s family, (I also had permission to address her as such). we got to know her when our parents were at 3030. Though I haven’t seen her in several years since our parents passing, she was someone I thought of often. Loved her humor and ability to speak her mind. I know many will miss her.
