    Words are so hard when trying to find the right thing to say. It hurts me to see the two of you go through the loss of another child. I worry about the toll this will take on your health issues. Just know that I pray for God’s protection and comfort for you during this time, as well as the rest of the family. I love you June & Junior.

    My heart is heavy, Candy was one of those people that even if you haven’t been around Candy when you did see her she welcomed you a smile and makes you feel like no time has gone by. I’m going to miss my friend but her smile and laughter will stay with me till I see her again. Our time is up with Candy, it’s God’s turn.

      Dear June & Jr

      No words can describe the loss of your daughter. What eases the pain is. Knowing she is no longer hurting. She will be missed but not forgotten.
      Letting her go with a smile in your heart. Is brought on by knowing one day you will see her again & sitting next to her in the present of the lord.
      For now let the healing of your loss begin by all the memories you and other’s have of her, by sharing your thought and memories and the celebration of her life.
      Prayers & Hugs across the miles.
      Chet & Donna (Wms) Saladin
