It’s been said......If one once to know how ones choices affected others!!!!!
Just observe the line at there funeral, observe how big a funeral procession is going to a cemetery!!!!!!!
Connie’s choices in this life “Truly” affected many, many lives......

Maybe some ya’s remember this...
A quote from “The Last Samurai”
When a soldier who fought in the civil war & went to Japan & became a “Samurai”.....after all the....once renowned Samurais were killed.....
The now wounded American Samurai was brought before the young Japanese emperor & the emperor wanted to know how the chief samurai leader (Kusumoto) died!!!!!!! The American replied.....
“I will not tell you how he died....
Instead......I will tell you how he LIVED!!!!!”
Connie was our “Samurai”!!!!!!
Love always, Dale & Deb Badertscher
