Thinking of you all sending love in this difficult time. Although Candy and I only played together as children (cousins) I remember her pretty blond hair and easy way. And how much she loved kittens. Rest In Peace.
Mike, Damien, and Kirsten,
I worked with your Moma for many years and she was near and dear to my heart! If y’all need anything, don’t hesitate to call me. Y’all are in my prayers.
Candy was a wonderful, caring person. She was also an amazing teacher. I was lucky enough to have been one of the few students she taught in the St. Vincent medical assisting school. I am where I am today because of her and for that I will be forever grateful. My heart goes out to her family and friends. She was a gift from god and will be missed greatly.
My wonderful niece Gone to soon, she still had a lot to give. Loved you Candy
Candy was my instructor at St. Vincent Hospital for Medical Assisting. She was so sweet, funny, and kind-hearted! She made learning so easy and got me out of my shell when it came to patient care since I have always been shy and boosted my confidence. She also calmed my nerves everytime when it came to blood draws, which was something I feared and now is a breeze. She was a great teacher, mentor, and role model. I am the Medical Assistant I am today because of Candy.
Prayers for strength, understanding and peace for family and friends.
It was a pleasure to know you and to work alongside you.
God Bless you Candy.
I was fortunate to have met Candy through St. Vincent Medical Group. She was a warm, kind and caring soul. Candy will be missed. Rest In Peace , sweet one.
Candy was an inspiration a and left us too soon. God be with all during this time. Our love, thoughts and prayers are right there with you.
Love, Joanie + Gib
Cancer is so limited-
It cannot cripple Love
It cannot shatter Hope
It cannot corrupt Faith
It cannot destroy Peace
It cannot destroy friendships
It cannot suppress Memories
It cannot silence Courage
It cannot conquer Spirit
It cannot invade the Soul or
Steal Eternal Life
My deepest condolences to you all. Candy hired me to work at Newburgh Family Physicians. She had such a calm and caring attitude. I have many fond memories that I will always treasure.
