Our prayers go out to Connie's husband James, daughters Jamie and Camie, her father, brother and 5 grandchildren.  As Scott Colburn used to say 'sorrow in the night but rejoicing in the morning'.

Dear Friends,

Additional sad news for Connie's family was in the Sunday Journal and Star. Her father, Wayne Koop, passed away on Thursday, April 16:

Wishing her family comfort and peace in the face of both losses.
