I just want to thank each of you for your
lovely and loving comments about my
wonder of a sister- Candace Teresa
Cresswell Platt. You captured so much of her
from her kindness and sweetness to her
strengths in writing and editing but most of
all her big loving heart! Thank you! ♥️

My father Jerry Schwiebert passed away yesterday and I just happened to see that Candace also passed recently. I know the two of them shared so many good times working on books together.

I personally have so many positive memories of doing landscaping with my best friend Robbie for Candace. Her death hit me. She was always so friendly and so generous. Her marriage was an example to me of how I hope to live my life.

Sending lots of love.

Candy was an amazing lady. She would always light up the room when she arrived. Smart, funny, warm and friendly are just some of the things that come to mind when I think of her. We will miss her until we reunite in heaven.
Barry, Tara, Yuri and Sagan, I feel your pain and wish I had the words to help...there are no such words.
Love you guys, Walt

Candace was an amazing bright light of a woman who gave a lot of love, and I feel fortunate to have known her and been in her orbit for even a few years. She was my best friend's mother - joyous and caring and silly at all the right times. She gave good advice. She taught me how to make scrambled eggs in the microwave! She welcomed me whenever I needed a place to stay. She is dearly missed indeed. My deepest sympathy to Barry, Tara, and all of her family.
