*Candy went to Heaven on November 26, 2010 after a lengthy battle with cancer. She was so valiant and brave. She may have lost the battle, but she won the war! Now she is reunited with her "other half" and I just know they are running and skipping on streets paved with gold and are totally pain free.

*When Candy and Sandy were a year old, doctors gave them no longer than age five to live. This is my testimony to a God that knows no boundaries. He, alone, knew how long each of them would be here on this earth. He had a plan and they were to bear proof that God is Almighty. They both touched so many lives while they were here. They would pray for people with trivial problems, while they were bound in a body that was crippled and filled with pain. Candy prayed for people in the nursing home as she lay dying from the terrible disease of cancer. I knew they were God's children as well as mine, for they were meant to serve a living purpose on this earth. I don't doubt how many lives they touched and changed during their time here. I have to leave this as a testament to their purpose and their service to the Lord. We may all pass away, but God and His word will never pass away!

***Candy absolutely loved Mickey Mouse!***
