I was heartbroken to hear of Connie’s passing. Pat you made her so happy with your visits and making sure she had what she needed. She loved to have her hair colored,thank you for allowing her to express herself. I never knew what to expect purple,blue,red,pink she was so proud of all the compliments she received. I will always remember how sweet and gentle she was to her baby doll. God Bless you and the family and it was an honor to be her social worker.
