I saw Connie at our 20th Reunion and she was just as cheerful and lovely as she was in high school. I remember at CHS being impressed by what a talented artist she was. I'm not a bit surprised that she found a way to use that talent to build a career. Selfishly, I wish Connie could be part of our 50th Reunion because I'd love to see a Connie Olive-designed t-shirt for our class. Rest in peace, Connie. We'll miss you.

I will always remember sharing secrets walking back and forth from your house to mine. You were beautiful, kind, smart, talented, fun and a great listener!  You and I understood each other during a time when that seemed so important. I'm  sorry that life got in the way of having a closer relationship after CHS. I hope your short life was full  and that we will meet, again. I will cherish your memory and our friendship always.
