Clarence, Connie, LuAnn: I am so sorry for your loss. Seems like just yesterday we were neighbors on the hill. I still remember hearing "her" sweet voice calling "Connie, LuAnn, super is ready". I am sorry I missed her funeral. I learned of her passing too late. If you need to talk call 770-718-7897. God bless
