Condolence & Memory Journal

Jim and Matt, So sorry to read about your mom. When visiting Francestown and passing your mom and dad's house I often thought about you, Matt and your parent's. I would have a small chuckle about us going to and from the key hole in Hillsborough. Fun times! Matt teaching me basketball. Thanks.

Connie inspired my mother to put her land in a conservation easement. Connie was always interested in the greater good. She is missed.

Aunt Connie was the last of the Clark aunts and uncles who had a profound influence on my values and attitudes. I am grateful that she was in my life. More than anyone, she was my link to Grandma. I was touched by her offer to stand in for my mother if I needed her, after my mom died in 1994.

I didn't know Connie very well, meeting her a few times here in Newton, Ma. Through James I learned more about his mother and father and the family history. What became clear to me was how warm and friendly she was. How interested in those she met and the world around her. Her long life was a blessing, as was her being supported in her own home surrounded by her family and those who cared for her, until her passing.

So sorry to read about my old friend's passing. Over the years we had so many good times with Harry and Connie. Harry is the one who dubbed our end of town "the swinging south end" ! My sympathy to you all.

Francestown has lost someone very special- thankfully some of the natural world we enjoy in town is part of her legacy.

We did not really know Connie, but at a recent art show we saw her view her husband's and son's work. Even though frail, she was engaged, interested and very proud of the artistic talents her family. Her determination, enthusiasm, and interest was evident even very near the end of her life.
