@ The Grammys 2012

Connie & Cimcie Grammys2012

 CONNIE ACCEPTING ROGER’S AWARD

Such a bittersweet day for our family…just like the word in poor Whitney’s song. Life is so very, very short. All future plans are just a possibility–take note young people. A cliché, but so true, “live each day as if it’s your last.”

The girls (really women, but they will always be my girls: Cimcie & Ashlee) and I feel such gratitude for Roger’s award, but…so many buts.

Cimcie, Connie, Jeff “Skunk” Baxter & Ashlee

 

 

Maybe I’ll be able to write about this some day, but not today.

Many thanks to Jeff for helping us get through the day.

A happier day: Connie, Ashlee, Roger and Cimcie at his Lifetime Achievement Award Party in South Beach from the NARAS Florida Chapter in 2006.
