    Rest in Peace, Uncle Connie. I have great memories of you always being cheerful and a kind, caring soul. Anyone willing to don a Santa outfit in the cold to bring joy to the children in the family is obviously a jovial, loving family member.

    My condolences for the whole family during this time. Love, Greg
