The Perry Family is in my thoughts and Prayers! Connie was such fun to be with and loved the Lord dearly. She was in our Bible Study and was always prepared. I wanted to be at the funeral but became ill but I did get into the doctor and on an antibiotic. So sorry!!! When I think of Connie, I see her lovely smile. The obituary was very nice too. Someday I know I will see her and my husband Bill. That's our HOPE of Eternal Life promised by our Savior. I can't imagine how well she feels today, breathing Heavenly air. Love through Christ.....Carol Edwards
