At the end of her life, Candy was the same good gentle soul that I first met in Kindergarten. I'll always remember her commenting (with an impish smile) that I was so much older than her (I was born the day before Candy). God rest and keep you, Candy. My sincere condolences to Gary and everyone in Candy's family.
