I remember Connie from the time I ate BBQ and FF at the Mecca to dancing in her club in Cleveland. She was a wonderful person and so full of personality.

This lady was one of the most kindest people i ever meet. She took me under her wing and made me the bartender i am today. Her and my Dad were very good friends. I worked for many times. She gave my son his Nick name " party time". I was at the oasis when I went in labor!! RIP Ms. Connie. Heaven has gained a wonderful Angel!
