Tom and I send our deepest sympathies. We loved the time we spent with her and our Faith Church Family. We have fond memories of her and her service at Faith, as well as the beautiful holiday display that she and Guy invited us to see in their home each year we were in Allen. Her legacy is a blessing to all those that come after. Angie and Tom Mozilo, October 29, 2018 I would like to express my deepest sympathy to family and friends. May all of your good memories be greater than your sadness during this difficult time. (Isaiah 25:8) Christie C, October 29, 2018 Connie was there for me 18 years ago when I had just come out of a 29 year marriage. The Bible studies and get-togethers at her home for the Ladies of Faith made a major difference in my life. We will all miss her so very much.
