Candice was born October 5, 1985 in Forest Hills, Queens, New York. The energy and joy she gave often surprised, amazed and overwhelmed her family. On her fourth birthday, her Uncle Fred found it hard to believe that he had been debating “with a three year old all that time“. Candice was intelligent, curious, loving, and anxious to please her family. Yet, she greatly missed her mother, Lisa, who passed away of cancer in 1990 before Candice was able to begin the kindergarten class her mom registered her for on Long Island. Instead, her maternal grandparents brought her to Ocala, Florida. Candice enjoyed summers on Long Island with her cousins, Bill and James. As she matured and her grandparents grew older, she grew concerned about their health and time spent away from them. While Candice was a teenager, her grandmother's stroke left her bedridden and unable to talk but Candice helped her grandfather care for her. In 2006, Candice sought out and met with her overjoyed Jamaican paternal family members now living in Connecticut. After her grandmother passed away in 2010, Candice continued to care for her grandfather who has Alzheimer's disease. She even took her grandfather with her and her friends on a cruise. Candice was fun loving and enormously generous with both her time and her money. Even though Candice's life was not easy, her goal was always to help everyone and to bring them happiness. Like her mother, Candice is respected, loved, and most certainly blessed for the help and the happiness she gave during her brief life.
