  1. I’m deeply saddened by the death of my dear cousin. Connie was an angel sent by God to share in the work as a servant. She was a faithful volunteer at Bethel AME Church food pantry for approximately 10 years. She and her husband Henry was a beacon of light and very much loved and appreciated.

    Thank you my beautiful cousin for being my friend and for being a willing vessel for Kingdom work. I love you and I will miss you until we meet again.

    To my family, you’re in my prayers and know God has Connie and that He’s carrying us through this difficult time right now.

  2. MAY THE GRACE, PEACE,AND THE LOVE OF GOD DWELL IN YOUR HEARTS, AND OVERSHADOW THE SORROW,AND GRIEF OF LOSING YOUR PRECIOUS LOVE ONE.
    IT WAS MY PLEASURE TO SERVE MISS CONNIE FOR A SHORT WHILE. SHE BELIEVED IN GOD,AND WAS CONCIOUS OF HIS PRESENCE, HIS POWER, AND HIS WAYS.BUT NOW SHE HAS RECEIVED THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL TO BE WITH HIM FOREVER. LET US REJOICE IN OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST WHO HAS GIVEN HER THIS ETERNAL GIFT.
