To Candy's Family, I too am truly heartbroken 💔 Although I have only known Candy a short time, she was my volunteer at LCMH. At the time I met Candy, we became fast friends. We both were survivors and close in age. We loved our families and spoke of them often. Every friday we would update each other on news from the "homefront". Candy especially loved talking about her grandchildren. Candy loved my hugs and I will truly miss hugging her, "Love You Girl"
I wish the family strength to get through this most difficult time.

Dear Carufel Laff Families,
Thank you for sharing your beautiful Candy with us. What fun we had just being together. Talking until 3:00am...laughing and giggling like the little girls we once were. Candy and I went to kindergarden together. When we Sassies got together we had fun just being together again. Oh how I hoped wished and prayed for Candy to get well. But God had other plans. Our loss is heavens gain. Fly with the angels Candy...until we meet again. Thank you for being my dear dear friend. Love you and say hi to Red, our Sassy Sue.
