(!) Today is April 25, 2015. I looked Candace up on the Internet to send her birthday greetings. I knew her long ago at Visa. We had lost touch. Her passing is quite the shock to me. We lost a smiling face, a kind soul and a caring person.

I had the honor of working for Candace at Visa for 3 years. She wasn't just the best manager on the Planet, she was also my friend, my advocate, my spiritual sounding board, my coach and cheerleader.

I worked remotely from my home in Austin, and every morning, Candace would call me. She wanted to hear about my previous day's "God Deal". I always had some sort of miracle or blessing to share with her. We talked about Heavenly Father, and

RIP Candace. Over 20 years away from Visa does not erase the fond memories I have of you. Be with God, my friend!

This past two weeks has been sad for me but also happy that Candace does not have to suffer anymore. I will always miss her. We had emailed each other in Jan and I had plans to contact her when I visit Half Moon Bay in March.
I cleaned Candace and Ed's home for many years and we shared many things. She always left a gift for me each time I came to her home. She was so generous with

Where do I start, Candace was a rare person who once entered your life left a permanent lasting impression. One that you never forgot. As a friend she was sweet and caring person that truly would do everything she could to help you. When I needed someone to talk to she always make time even when she did not have much time to give.
As a coworker I learned some very valuable life lessons from her.
We have all lost

I knew Candace for several years in the 1990's when our work paths crossed frequently at Visa. When I bought my first home in 1995, Candace took me shopping for lamps and an assortment of other household things. She loved the Restoration Hardware store at Tyson's Corner, VA. I still have a coat that Candace encouraged me to buy as well.

I remember a business trip we had to Philadelphia that coincided with Chinese New Years. Although we were tired, there

Candace was truly the most generous and giving person I have every known. Both she and Ed were so supportive of me and my family with our first born Chris. She and I spent many days together in the early days of Visa and travelled to many wondrous places, laughing all the way. As a professional woman she paved the way for many of us. The world has lost a brilliant and wonderful woman. Candace you have left a lasting place in our hearts forever.

Candace was an inspiration to us all. My Godfather Joseph and Mother Josephine were immediately drawn to her on a Pilgrimage to both Lourdes and Fatima. They were all inseparable ever since then 6 years ago and they always will be. I myself did not get the pleasure to meet her until they returned back home to the Bay Area. I was instantly drawn to such a vibrant, magnetic soul that will forever be remembered dearly by my family and
