Me and Cassie grew up together from kids to adults. All through middle school she was my sister and we had so many memories and good times I just can't pick one. She was an amazing woman who I still can't believe is gone, it has hit me everyday since her passing and it will effect me daily this I know. When my father passed I was dropped at her house early in the morning as they rushed him to the er. She comforted me and was there after his passing daily at my home til I returned to school. Another memory that we just talked about and giggled a bit on before her passing was when we were kids she lived by an old cemetery. We walked back there and looked at the graves, got ourselves all worked up and when a storm rolled in as we walked back to her home we were convinced it was the ghost. I miss her dearly.

I have to say I only got to know Cassie a few months ago but I was G’ma to her she said. She was so sweet and nice to my daughter Shelley and Nolan who adored her. She was a beautiful lady we talked a lot on the phone. She had a lot of illnesses like me so she talked to me about them.. I told her she was too young to have all this trouble. She said her n Derek were going to get married I’m so sorry for her that that didn’t happen. She loved him so very much. Candy I just want you to know you must have done a great job raising her because she is a very loving person and she said family meant so much to her.. She so loved her kids.. I’m so sorry for your loss, I can’t even imagine it.. She’s with her dad now but just too soon. R.I.P. beauty. You will really be missed by all ur family and a lot of friends.. Candy my prayers n thoughts are with you. God is by ur side always.. She will be a beautiful loving guardian angel.. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ G’ma Sharon to her.

I met Cassie when she was almost three years old. She was so bright eyed and full of spunk! I had just started dating my Husband (Nolan and Joshua Layton’s Father) and we spent an amazing week with Candace and Ross. The “adults” all wanted to go out.... me??? I just wanted to stay home and watch Cassie and her Brother Matthew. Cassie and I became super close instantaneously!!!! We colored, she followed me everywhere! She finally talked me into watching Beauty and the Beast! Not once, not twice.... not even a few times.... I am pretty sure it was upwards of fifty or more times that week. Together, her and I learned every word to every song. When the Movie came out this past year of the remake of Beauty and the Beast, Cassie and I made plans to go see it together! I have been close to Cassandra since the day we met! My Son Nolan and I travel a lot with my job and we were blessed by GOD to be able to spend several weeks with Cassie, Derek and her gorgeous and wonderful children Logan and Lucy. GOD gave us the opportunity to re-connect and become very close again. I have two boys..... Cassie has always been my Baby Girl. Nolan and I will treasure that memory for the rest of our lives. We spent such good quality time with her that I will never forget. She always thought of me as her Aunt even though My Boys’ Father and I divorced some years ago. We have always kept in touch. I love her beyond measure. She was an amazing and wonderful Mother that raised those kids so very well mannered. She is truly amazing. Cassie touched our lives when we had the perfect pleasure of staying with her visiting. She is not only a tremendous Mother.... but a loving Niece, Fiancée and Daughter to her Mother. Candace, I’m so sorry for your tremendous loss. One Mother to another..... she loved you unconditionally. I’m blessed to have gotten so close with Cassie again. I will miss you every moment of every Day Cass!!!! You are in GODS arms now. With Grandpa Layton! You Baby Girl, will be missed

My Dearest Cassie, I have such fond memories of you from as far back when you were just 3 yrs old at LaPetite. I as the teacher with my son Cameron and You in my class. You would brighten up the room even then as little as you were with your coppertone tan and blonde hair. You loved when I sang and read books and at times would tell the other kids to be quiet and listen. Little did I know on that first day of meeting you, getting to know your parents your brother Matt and my son David would too build a bond that they have today, that you and Cameron would remain friends. I may have told you in a post or two that you were a beautiful woman inside and out and I was proud to see the amazing young woman, mother and partner to Derek you were. God has another angel and so do all your family and friends! RIP Cassie
