Letters to the Editor

Family’s appreciation

To the Editor:

I want to take this opportunity to thank all our friends, Bob’s classmates, my colleagues, and former students, Sean’s friends, our pastor Fred Burtelson, church friends old and new, and my family, who came to show their respects for my hubby, Bobby C.

Thank you for all the food donations, phone calls, stopping by, and outpouring of love. I want to thank Dan Cooney, Mike Cooney, Shawn Cooney and Dave Pierce for helping everything run smoothly.

I don’t think Bob realized how many lives he touched with his helpfulness and his “Bobby C-ness.” His brother, Joe, relayed many wonderful comments he heard about him helping people in a big or small way. He had the biggest heart. We all need to emulate that.

I am so thankful I told him he was going to marry me 39-plus years ago. What a ride it was. So tonight, please do something Bobby C and I did all the time: Take the someone special in your life and give them a big “Bobby C” hug, a big kiss, and tell them you love them. Because you never know what the next minute brings.

Thank you so much for your love and support. Sean and I are so appreciative.

Judy and Sean Connor
