I am unable to be here today. Fortunately, my daughters Angela and Ana-Maria, accompany my mother, my cousins and my Aunt Connie as well as all of you who have come to remember her life. John Green wrote that death does not change us, but reveals us. This I think is true not only of those who pass but those us who remain. Life takes us all on our different paths and we drift away from those people and things that have contributed to whom we are today. Aunt Connie is part my earliest memories. She was a beautiful, strong, determined woman who loved life I remember going shopping with her, Eiband’s, Nathan’s, Penny’s, Three Sisters. I remember apple pie at the Turf café. Aunt Connie loved apple pie. I remember lunch on Sundays. I remember The Sound of Music when I was in sixth grade, which with its recent revival for the holidays, meant a phone call or two. I see Aunt Connie’s radiant smile, and that mole right above her lip, which she had removed years ago. I see her hands with flawless fingernails. I remember the smell of her perfume – I think it was Emeraud or Emerald Forest, - the holiday smells of her Thanksgiving turkeys and her Christmas fruitcake. What banquets she prepared bringing family together. In what was to be our final conversation, right after her birthday in October, she told me all about her holiday plans – Shelley and Dick’s 50th, Thanksgiving, going back to Arkansas for Christmas and the New Year; she was excited. Amid our I love you’s she would say, “Like my granddaughter says,” I love you a lot.” She told me that Joe and I should never put off doing things for a better time and to enjoy Prague. Aunt Connie, as you join Uncle Tony, your parents, and brothers you have once again brought family together, in some instances for the first time, revealing in each of us and the friendships that you have forged over the years, how you have touched our lives giving way to the great grief that only great love can know and heal. We celebrate you. Aunt Connie, te quiero.

I have many fond memories of Mrs Conde. She and my Mom were very close friends and have known Consuelo and her husband, Tony all of my life. My thoughts and prayers are with the Conde family. Your family will always have a special place in my heart.
