If you only read this introduction I want you to know that things do happen for a reason, even if we do not know why. I believe people are put into our lives and it’s up to us to make the most of those encounters. And, that you can find love within the most troubling times or darkest moments in your life, as well as in the lives of others. This is the story of a chance meeting and my commitment to do what that voice in my head, as well as my heart, said was the right thing to do.
I would not wish the last year of Candy’s life on anyone. She lived through “hell on earth”, the death of her unborn child, being diagnosed with cancer, then discovering more about herself, her “real” friends, and the family she never knew she had.
I was blessed to come into Candy’s life and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. I hope you enjoy reading my story about making friends with Candy, a view from down the street online. And, if you are as lucky as I was, you will learn something new about yourself or enjoy a good read as an observer looking in.
