    Rest in peace my sweet aunt, Connie. I know where you are and I know I’ll see you again one day. One correction on the obituary, her special cousin was Jennessel Counts.

    Condolences to the family and friends who loved Connie. I know it is a struggle
    to cope with the loss of this dear woman. Prayer to God for peace and
    comfort will be a big help at this sad time.
