So very sorry for your loss. I had the honor and privilege to work with Candy for many years in Fairfield. She was the consummate professional who always had what was best for our children with special needs at the core of her being. She was a lifetime learner and encouraged her staff to advocate for the child and provided professional development opportunities so we all could become better at delivering services for our children. God Bless you and may she rest in peace.
