A firefighter to some, A hero to many, A sister to all, You have answered the last call... Rest In peace my sister and friend..
I love you more than every grain of sea sand in all the world my Angel. My heart is completely broken..we were each others worlds. I miss you so much. Thank you for sharing your beautiful heart and life with me. You were the sunshine and starlight of my life.
Rest now my fallen sister Lay soft your suffering back Rest well and forever Your memory shall not lack Rest your tired hands Wipe clean your weary brow Rest with St. Florian Your spirit now endowed Rest here your breaking heart We know you gave your all Rest easy, you’ve done your part You’ve answered your last call Rest knowing that in God we sought Oh lord, watch over another who just fell Rest assured your troubled thought As we ring the final bell.
Candice, I will never forget the day that we have met, a sunny Saturday in December 2001, 16 years ago. I just started in the hotel industry and you were very much excited to complete school and study… What we both had in mind was to make a success. You had so much passion and zest for life, despite your circumstances and I salute you for that! Candice (Ashley) thank you for serving others like you have done till the end. I am sure that many are united not only in their desire to pay their respects, but rather in the need to do so. Many who have not met you, feel that they too lost someone close to them on Sunday afternoon. Today is the day, that I want to thank you – hoping that you read this from above. Thank you for never allowing anything to get you down. Thank you for being the person you were, even though God granted you half a life. I feel cheated that you were taken from us so young and yet I must learn to be grateful that you came along at all. Now that you are gone, I appreciate what we are now without and I want you to know that life without you is very difficult. Especially for your wife Kelly and dad… I see the pain in his eyes….. Words can never begin to express… So much time LOST! Candice, your Facebook with all the photos and tributes says it all… The joy you had for life transmitted wherever you took your smile and the sparkling in your eyes. Your energy which you could barely contain, was the drawing card by many to you. Kelly, we care desperately for you today. We are all chewed up with the sadness at the loss of a woman who was not even our wife / partner. How great your suffering is, I cannot even begin imagine. I give thanks to God for the small mercies he has shown us at this dreadful time. For taking Candice, when she had so much joy in her life. Above all I give thanks for the life of a woman I am so proud to be able to call my sister, the unique, the crazy, the compassionate soul, whose beauty both internal and external, will never be extinguished from our minds. Go will my sister. May you rest in peace and rise in Glory!
I love you so much every moment of every day and.night. I'll love and miss you until my last breath and after
