We love your family and you are in our prayers during this time of transition as Connie leaves this earth where she gave so much loving service to others and moves into the next sphere where I'm confident she will continue to bless the lives of many. My years serving in the Relief Society Presidency in Charleston WV with Connie at the helm were a blessing to me. May the Lord's blessings be with you. Our love to all of you - Ken and Rosie Jarvis

My thoughts and prayers go out to Brother Hill and to all of Connie's family. What a blessing for all of you to have been able to share your lives with such a wonderful woman. I feel so blessed to have been able to know Connie and for the time we spent together serving in the Ogden Temple. She was the ultimate example of a kind and caring daughter of our Heavenly Father who always strived to lift others. I know that she will continue to bless the lives of others in her new calling in assisting the work to go forward.

Mom, you will be so missed while we finish out our earthly missions. I know that you are still doing missionary work here on this earth and are also getting things ready for us to join you. I am so glad to have had you as a mom, and so grateful for all of the precious moments and experiences that you were able to share with me. I'm so grateful for all of the examples that you set for me and everyone else that you knew. Your love, kindness, patience, faith, intelligence, excitement for learning and challenging yourself, and so many other things have helped me, and will continue to help me in this life. I feel so blessed to have been able to call you mother and friend, and also to be a part of the beautiful family unit that you have loved unconditionally. Thank you!

My heart is heavy for the loss of Soeur Hill as we called her in the France Toulouse Mission. She was a mission mom to me and a dear example of love and kindness. After I returned home from my mission, I married a US Marine, and my husband was deployed during our first year of marriage. It brings tears to my eyes to write this, but she would check on me weekly, calling and inviting me to the house. She understood the military life and would talk to me for a long time about how it was going to be ok. We would talk for two hours sometimes. She would tell me how her wonderful sons were doing, and it was clear she loved them all so much. Her phone calls meant so much to me and helped me keep my mind off his deployment. I know that her testimony of Christ will serve as a lasting impression on her family as I know it has on me. I love her, and send my love to Frere Hill and her family.
