Candy was such a fighter. He accomplished a lot in his 42 yrs. He was a blessing to me . Always prayed for me. I saw him last 2yrs. ago as he was planning to move to a boarding care.

So sad to hear of Candy's passing...he was such a kind soul. Candy always use to say, "one day this will all be over & all this pain & suffering will be gone, I can't wait til Jesus comes, there is a better place, there IS a better place." We'll miss you Candy, til our Saviour comes, rest in peace. Lisa RN
