It has been a long time since we last spent time together but I want to say thank you for being a good friend many years ago. You have always had a huge heart and I will always remember how you supported me in a difficult time in my life. We recently planned to get together after I was done with school and I really wished we would of had the chance to spend sometime reminiscing about our younger years. I know God embraced you as you entered into heaven and that you are now in a beautiful place free of any sorrow or tears. I pray for your family and ask God to give them the strength and comfort to make it through this sudden departure. As you have with many people that you have come into contact, you have touched my life and have left me with memories in my lifetime that will always bring a smile to my heart. You will be missed Candi Sue!

There are no words that can fill the emptiness in your heart... but perhaps it will help to know others care. I am deeply saddened by your loss, and I want you to know that my thoughts will be with you during the days and weeks ahead.

~When the shadows lengthen, when the evening comes, when the world is hushed, when the work is done, then the Lord gives us a safe lodging a holy rest and peace at last~

With Deepest Sympathy

So many precious child hood memories include our beloved Candi~ elementary school classmates @ East End and neighbors 'down the street' at home. Playing 'down in the flats' or up in the attic on North street~ probably drove the rest of the family crazy with our girly giggling !!Running up and down the hill sled riding at Shady Brook and making those silly lanyard key rings at the park in the summer. Candi and I were 'hushed' by the Nuns in CCD and learned the catechism together... eventually we became the very first GIRL 'alter boys' at St Bridget's Church! A thing un -heard of 'back in the day'!
So hard to imagine the many years that have flown by ~ I regret not knowing more of Candi as an adult, as a wonderful mom and loved daughter and such a wonderful contributor to the community !
Please know how very very many people were touched by the life of Candi Sue~ deeply missed and well loved.
