Connie was a positive influence in my life for many years and helped teach Dan and Sarah about the love of family by the way she lived her life. I still miss the cinnamon and pecan rolls at Christmas. My condolences to all of you.

Dear Griffin Family: I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. It breaks our hearts when death separates us from the ones we love so much. The Bible reminds us that God sees our pain and sadness and has promised that soon "death will be no more."(Revelation 21:4) He will heal our hearts by resurrecting our precious loved ones to life again.(John 6:40) Until then, I hope the memories of Connie and these promises from God comfort you now and in the days to come.
