  1. Aunt Connie was the eldest of five daughters. She was tall, slim and blonde with lovely eyes. Growing up in Chicago she revealed to family and friends the genes of “true grit.” Despite enduring challenges and obstacles, she persevered and showed a passion that helped her achieve goals she had set.

    She was a great story teller. As a child and as an adult, her stories left me wide eyed as she wove our family history with its cast of family members — most so hilarious that tears would run down our faces as we laughed and begged for more.

    ” . . . Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.” Sincerely, Renee Leet
