We both want to share our condolences to James, Jaime, and Camus. We have such wonderful memories of laughter, swimming, food and fun with your family. Connie was the best! Matt and Tim LOVED going to Connie’s for ‘daycare’! Our sympathies with all of you.

Jim, Jaime, Camie and families, all our love now and forever.

Don and Susan Fertig

We are so sad to hear of Connie's death. Marv is a friend of Wayne via our membership together at Trinity Lutheran Church in Lincoln and Romeos. We also became friends with Camie & her family, who we still treasure. May the Lord provide you comfort. We are praying for you daily, especially with the additional challenges of the pandemic. Stay strong in your faith!

James (as Connie always called you), Jaime and Family, and Camie and Family, Much, much too soon for someone who had so much more love to give. Time cut her physical love short but the abundant memories of her love will continue. We all (Hal and Mary and all three Girls and Families) virtually participated in the service, and were moved by Jaime's and Camie's remembrances. May time help heal your loss and bring her to life in your hearts.

Sending my sincere condolences to the family who are suffering such a sudden and devastating loss. Though I did not know Connie personally, I knew her through her amazing daughter Camie! We often spoke of her mom. We shared many many stories about our families, my favorite one from Camie.. my moms having technical difficulties again and can’t check her email LOL!! May the memories last a lifetime.. Camie, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Sending you big hugs my friend! ~Jen Alvarez

It is with great sadness that I send condolences to Connie's family. She was a fun cousin with a great sense of humor and an infectious laugh. I have so many happy memories of my family spending time at her childhood home in Lincoln with Uncle Wayne, Aunt Lois, Connie and Ken. I send much love to you all and wish you peace and strength in the days ahead.
