Candy and Michael. I'm so sorry to hear of you losing another parent so soon. It's always hard to lose a parent, but I'm sure it must be unbearable to lose both so soon. Be there for each other and try to remember the good times. You are in my prayers

The first time I ever spoke to him he scared me to death. Later in life he hugged me and told me I was a great friend to Candy with a big smile on his face. Mike, Candy, and Sabrina I love yall and have absolutely no words to offer except I'm so sorry but I send my unconditional love. My deepest and most sincerest sympathies to you all.
