Although I only had the pleasure of meeting Connie's daddy (that's how I knew him) He was a joy to talk to and be around, laughing and joking. I am sure he will be missed by everyone. But somehow I believe he is up in heaven talking to Dale and a few others getting ready to head off on a fishing trip or checking out some classic cars. Stan and I want to send our condolences to Connie and her family in this time.
Remembering you at this time. Stan and Terri Jackson
