I met Kandi thru Karen. Karen and my mother, Ann Lemon, worked together in Webster City. I worked with Vicki at Frigidaire. So sad that all these sisters have passed at such young ages.My thoughts and prayers go out to the families.
Forever in our hearts
We enjoyed getting to know Kandis while serving together on the Missions Team at church. Kandis had a servant heart. We will miss her.

Kandi will be missed. When we first moved to Dows, she and I did some sewing together. Our condolences: the Hirds
