I miss you little lady! We had a lot of laughs working together. We had each other’s back! We shared stories about our children and grandchildren! On birthdays we would buy everyone’s favorite things and I still think of you every time I see the individual servings of Jif PB. The lyrics to Vince Gill’s song Go Rest High on That Mountain comes to mind when I think of you! I know now you will find Peace! I will continue to pray for your children and grandchildren!

Candee, You will be so missed. I have to say you were my saving grace in Jr. High at Couldwood School. We laughed more than was allowed. When I was upset or mad, you always had the ability to put a smile on my face and laughter in my heart! You will be missed!
