Candi was one of a kind and helped me immensely when our mother died and I gained guardianship of my brother whom she was case worker for. She truly loved the folks she cared for and showed it constantly. Of course, all our meetings were at least a half hour extra for her stories! :)

Candi was the case manager for several clients that we shared. She truly cared that they each receive the best services possible and most dignity possible. She set an example I will never forget. We will miss her bright smile!
