According to TimesLIVE, Connie has learnt how to live with her loss and deal with the pain she was going through.
“Grieving is ongoing. You just literally learn to live with the pain and not let it decapitate you. Life has to go on. I still have ambitions. I still have a company I need to run. There’s a lot still to be done, I think for me its unfortunate that I find myself in a position where I feel like I have to do it alone although I have a lot of support around me,” the report quoted her as saying.
