    Lyndon, my heart is heavy to hear of Candy’s passing. The Heaven above sure gained a precious gem of an angel. I pray you find comfort and peace in knowing that her pain is no more and she is smiling as always and probably bending God’s ear a bit with a wonderful story about her precious Lyndon as if He didn’t already know you at all. I pray that your memories of days with Candy will get you through all this pain. Lean on your friends and family… never forget that you were Candy’s forever love as hers was yours and she will always live on in your heart.
