I am so sorry to hear of the passing of our friend we call pingy. She was a major force of nature and will be sorely missed. She is an angel now and looking down over us. Riley

Des, I am so sorry to hear about Connie's passing. You were a lovely warm and friendly couple whom I met through Olivia Tracey, PJ Carneys and you graced us with your presence when visited Fitzers bar on Lex. I'm so sorry you've lost your soul mate Des and deepest condolences to your two children. RIP Connie.

When I think of Connie I think of kindness, generosity, integrity, passion, determination, loyalty and a host of other honorable qualities that go on interminably. She was a free spirit who lived life on her terms, a giver who gave gladly, with an absolute Heart of Gold. There is nothing she wouldn’t do for anyone, from taking a homeless person off the street to drive them to rehab to somehow finding a golddust World Cup ticket to the 1994 Ireland -Norway game at the Giant’s Stadium. I feel so blessed to have shared her home in New York, along with Des, Rachel and Andrew, Goldie the Spaniel and Floyd the cat. I can still hear her airy voice from the living room as I came in the front door, “Ollie, are you home” as she looked up from her computer, a cigarette in one hand, chocolate nearby and Goldie curled up on the couch. I can still see the fridge magnet “Connie’s Kitchen” which was the in house joke as the food arrived at the door from Carney’s. I have a myriad of beautiful memories that I will treasure forever and so much gratitude for her kindness to me when I was fresh off the boat from Ireland. The world will not be the same without you Connie, and you will always be remembered with so much love. My deepest sympathies to Des, Rachel and Andrew, family and extended family, and friends on the loss of dear Connie. May she Rest In Peace.

I just read about Connie's passing. I can not begin to tell you how upset I am. I have known Ping for about 40 years. At one time we even worked together. Her wonderful, contagious laugh, her beautiful smile, her generosity, kindness and spirit of adventure few can match. She leaves behind a legacy that will always be with us. She would do anything to help anyone. I am totally lost. A big piece of me is gone. My telephone number is here for any that may need anything or some one to talk to to help in any way. Richard Ward (914_909-5008) I am devastated.

I knew pinG during Occupy. We met and lost each other a couple of times but were thrilled when we'd find each other, again. Two sassy lasses bringing our fire to the cause. Oh, she was strong-willed and hard-headed and we knew each other without ever meeting. She is one of the best people I have ever known. Her passing is a loss for all of us. Many sympathies for her immediate family and all of those whose hearts she touched. <3

I knew Connie as Ping-T, her online Occupy name. She was a feisty one, for sure, but also what a big heart that little body held. She opened up her home to many as they either traveled around, or were just passing through, as her and Des did a number of years back with me. Pingy - miss you, through occupello, OPN (and morning recess) and all of the GONN manifestations... (((((((Connie))))))) and my/our condolences, Des, on losing such a big part of your life, I hope your road ahead isnt too rocky. Thanks for having me over that time I was passing through, JG
