Those we love remain with us.
For love itself lives on.
And cherished memories never fade
Because a loved one’s gone.
Those we love can never be
More than a thought apart.
For as long as there is memory,
They’ll live on in our hearts.
Connie is survived by four sons and three daughters-in-law, Stuart and Jacquie Pollock, Gregor and Karen Pollock, Malcolm Pollock, all of Calgary, Ewan and Marilyn Pollock of Saskatoon, SK; a daughter Laraine Pollock of Calgary; seven grandchildren, Jaime, Jillian, Jessica, Adam, Mandy, Jennifer, and Michael; and five great-grandchildren, Corbin, Brittin, Jayden, Jared, and Andrew.
