I will miss you so much my sweet friend. I'll always remember how we laughed and how you were always telling me a joke and how you loved .peanut butter fudge. Rest now my love, you will be so missed. Best darned mail carrier I ever had.

I did Connie's hair for many years. It broke my heart to hear of her passing. She was such a sweet lady, one of which tracked me down on Christmas eve to give me a first Christmas ornament for my daughter. She loved getting doing different things to her hair and couldn't wait to show Kellie and Makayla. I am so very sorry for your loss!

You were so much more than our mail carrier—you were our friend. We’ll never forget your efforts “to move the box,” the day you came back “to protect us,” or how after the tornado, you were “our link to the outside world.” We will certainly miss seeing you every day. One last time, ‘just for the road,’ “Take care. See you tomorrow.”
