"Connie became our clerical when I was Assistant Buyer at McCurdy?s China department under Libbie Luciano. She was my ?partner in crime? whenever a little bit of mischief was on the agenda. I sat next to her in the office and she was always easy to work with. I?m sad to hear of her passing but glad to have known her."
