I spent many days of my life with that girl at the Ford Dealer in Clovis. She was a natural sales person and worked tirelessly.

I remember starting in sales at Strebeck GM in Portales in 1994. I learned more about selling cars from Candy than any manager at that store! She saw something in me and helped me. She Was Something!! I often teach her work ethic and strategies to my own employees. I will miss her

Candy, my friend. You sold Tom and I our first waterbed after we got married. You also sold Tom his truck in 2011 and kept us in stitches as you spoke of your grandchildren and family antics. You were on my mind heavily these past few days; now I know why, we just learned of your passing today. You will be greatly missed.

A great lady that will be missed by many. I had not seen her in many years and it seems like just yesterday I was dusting the waterbeds so we could have money to go skate. Love you Candy and condolences to the entire family.
