I’m so sorry to hear of Connie’s passing. I spoke with her around Easter and she made me smile and laugh with her witty jokes and updates on the “happenings” at Aster Place. She was such a wonderful woman…..It was a blessing to have gotten to know her. God bless her and your family. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. 
With love,
Joleen Schuler

Kelly and family,
Bob and I are so very sorry to hear of your mother’s passing.  We aways enjoyed talking to her and joking around with her because of “buff”.  We will miss her sense of humor. 
Take care, 
Bob and Colleen Hoffman
