My Story

Two years now and I still miss you so much. I wish you were here with us, watching my kids and Paul's kids grow up. They will continue to know you through our memories and stories but they will never get to know the you I always hoped they would. I used to invision them experiencing your passion, love, intelligence, wit, patience and understanding first hand. Spending summers with you going to museums and the movies and just chillin".  I am FURIOUS cancer took you away and now the girls (all 5 of them) are deprived of you. WE WILL KEEP YOU ALIVE IN THEIR HEARTS.  We all love you and miss you Candi. Keep watching over us with Momma, Poppa, Aunt Annie and Aunt Rosie!!

Please as always feel free to post something or light a candle for Candi... it's nice to know others are still thinking and remembering her.

Wll who could believe it's been a year. A year that for all of us who knew Candi can agree, just hasn't been the same! Sure, for most of us life has gone on. We continue the routines of our day. We get up, work, take care of kids, go out to dinner, clean the house, laugh,smile, argue, cry, and remember. Though we might not seem like it and we might not always show it, we remember.  I'm sure you can all agree that Candi is still fresh on all our minds. How can one forget a woman like Candi and all the wonderful things she stood for. I know that there isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss her terribly and wish I could pick up the phone to tell her something silly that I saw on tv or that happened to me,Kirk or the girls. To ask her advice, to be completely honest with her and know she isn't judging me. I miss that, I miss her. We love you Candi and on the anniversary of your death I wanted everyone to know, to be reminded of how much you were loved, are loved and missed everyday. I wish we could have you back, but since we can't, memories are what will get us through.
There are new pictures posted and please share your thoughts and feelings on this past year and anything you want to share about Candi that we might not know or knew and forgot.
Candi you are missed and thought of by all of those who loved you.



Original Post

I couldn't even begin to pretend I remember all of Candi's history and dates of where she lived, what she did, her memories or even who she was before the "Benedetto's"... I was so young but even then she was an awe in my life she  "lived" and I admired her so. And so I knew from the moment she stepped foot into my life that she would make one of the hugest impacts in my life that  I would ever know. She has been my inspiration, my sounding block, my reason and my family's sanity! You know every family has one... the person who "keeps it together" well Candi was that. Smart, beautiful, talented an amazing woman who blessed anyone who knew her and had the honor of being in her life. I could go on and tell a zillion stories but I know most of you who get this will have your own so please share and remember.... I will tell one. When I was ~18 and "borrowed" her beautiful black leather Bomber with a Fox fur collar ~$400. I stupidly left it in our Mazda with no locks while I went out to not the best neighborhood clubs. Well it was gone after a night of dancing etc.. I went home crying hysterical, couldn't breath... frantic she would be furious.  When I approached her and told her what happened she looked at me and said "what? that's it.... don't worry Tina it's just a jacket.. as long as your OK that is all that matters but hey next time don't leave a coat in the car"  I  was like what.... no yelling,  no freaking... She said "Tina it's just a coat!!! Their are more important things" So for Candi  please live those more important things... She would want that!
