The 77-year-old has been playing piano since she was 6 years old. The Singing Seniors group practices every Friday and meets once a month to sing at different nursing homes. "She's very good. We know when we don't have Linda," Shirley Hurst of Jasper said. "Everybody likes to sing."

The 68-year-olds met when they were 19 and have been married for 47 years. They joined the Singing Seniors two years ago. "I care a lot about what he thinks and he cares a lot about what I think. We mutually take care of each other," Connie said about their companionship.
