Dear Collinet family: My deepest condolences to you. I will always treasure the relationship your Mom and my Mom shared - truly lifelong friends. There are so few people who can boast sharing a wonderful friendship for so very long; they were blessed as friends for over 60 years. My heart is heavy from the loss of your Mom. Cherish and hold forever in your hearts the love and memories of your Mom; this will be your strength during this difficult time. In sympathy and love . . .

My deepest sympathy on the passing of your Mother Connie. I went to High School with her and graduated with her 65 years ago. Had'nt seen her since, but now seeing her picture I passes her many times in Huntley without knowing it was her. May she rest in peace.

My prayers are with you and your family today and forevermore. As a honored friend of James, a level-headed respectful gentleman, it shows that his family took pride in producing mannerable and Christian children. Keep the Lord first in your lives and you shall meet her again. God Bless you all.

My sincere sympathy in your loss and the loss to all of us of a lady who always had a smile and a cheerful attitude. She was "special" and brightened up our lives. I know God is welcoming her home with joy in His heart to have her home with Him.
