I was very sad to hear of Connie's passing earlier this month. She was a fierce competitor and yet the nicest woman at the same time.
She'd kick my ass, and then I'd give her a hug because she did it so eloquently because she was so dang sweet.
As I have been away from tournaments, I did not know she had been sick with cancer.
I remember her as this: (3rd on the right, standing next to her daughter).
She loved every minute of pool and she had such a great talent for the game. While I hated to run into her on the table, I loved seeing her smile in the aisles as we would pass each other and give smiles and waves.
She will be terribly, terribly missed.
I can't fathom what her daughter and family are going through. May they have peace.
