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.

JENNA L. ~ Hey Jim, Well, the book arrived yesterday, and I am so thankful to have read it. I read every word, for I am a "word" reader, not a skimmer. You know, for me, this was not a book about Candy, but a book about you. I know you didn't mean for it to be that way, but for me , it was. It gave me an insight into you, your thoughts, your feelings, your compassion, your talent.


CAROL R. ~ I read your book and it was a wonderful book.. I had to make it last three days lol I could have read it in one day but when I have something good in my hands, I try to make it last..God bless you for being a great friend to Candy...
