  1. I love this. I read this on Eric’s blog and fell in love with it. I have always loved the way you write, Candice. Bravo, girl.

  10. You are. I am so very, very sorry to hear that about cancer. I know you are a warrior, you fight and you inspire others to fight. You always did me. I admire and respect you as well as care about you my friend. I am glad to see you here. So much.
