The service for Candi was held on Sunday afternoon in the Rotary building in Lynden. This building was used as it was thought that more people would attend than the regular church Mark and Candi attended would hold. In fact somewhere between 250 and 300 hundred did attend. It was a beautiful service with Mark, daughter Dawn, and daughter-in-law Lizzie speaking. All had eloquent words to say. This was followed by a slide show set to music put together by Mark from all the thousands of photos the family has. It was a very nice synopses in photos of Candi's life.
On Monday family members started leaving for home. We took Mark out to dinner Monday night. Clyda and I waited until Tuesday to leave so we could do last minute things, like laundry for all the beds, towels, etc. We drove to Portland to spend a few days with our friends Thomas and Debbie. They had driven to Lynden for the service on Sunday.
To all those who sent cards, flowers, and thoughts, we would like to thank you for thinking of us in this very difficult time.
Candi was 55 years old and in the prime of her life. She had two new grand children under the age of 6 months. A lot to look forward too but the good Lord had other plans.
