Jon, Liz and family,

Collin and I send out our hearts with deep felt sorrow. We have so many wonderful memories of Conner and his many days at our house hanging with Collin. I still see their young faces playing video games and laughing and arguing at the same time! Conner was a very sweet and sensitive boy and I know he will be truly missed by all of you in the deepest saddest way. We are so sorry and as a mother my heart is heavy for all of you.

Jon, Liz, Chase, Alex, Jake -

Our hearts go out to all of you. Countless memories of fun times with Connor in Connecticut, the Hamptons, and Naples. We will miss Connors wicked sense of humor and quick wit! Boy could he dish it, but at the same time take a good ribbing with ease! Connor was extremely loving and always quick to ask how each of us were doing. When Connor was around you gravitated towards him immediately because he was....simply a joy to be around. I know I will make a note to try and be as kind and welcoming as you bud!

Love to all of you. Brent, Ash, and Pippa
