Coni - Seattle Times article

I've been struggling through all the beautiful sentiments posted here, but in case you haven't seen it, I thought you all might like reading this Seattle Times article about Coni
http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/htm...chobit03m.html

She was definitely one of those people it was a joy and honor to know...

What a gal.

I loved when a bunch of were sitting around yapping and I said something inappropriate (me?). Coni would give me this look and say, "Go to your room!"

I am going to truly miss her.

Thanks for that Bruce!

I have been in a sad state many times over the past couple of weeks. Just cannot shake the feeling of terrible loss every time I think about the times we shared on our bikes and at CCR. I see all the "bad" people on TV and in newspapers and wonder "Why Coni?" It is just incomprehensible to me that the best go first in so many cases. That makes it all the more saddening.

This group has certainly suffered a great loss.

Just when I think I can not be more amazed with Coni, I learn more of her life and i'm amazed so more. Her service tomorrow will be most impressive I'm sure. I am very fortunate to be able to attend it. I just hope I can handle it....
