I just read the news that Candy passed away this morning. It makes me so sad because I let my friendship with her slide. Candy was the first person in the Houston fandom community to make me feel welcome and that seemed to be interested in my input. She also explained to me what slash is. :) I first met her way back in 1985. She started Revelcon, our convention that's here in Houston every March, back in 1989. I've been every single one. Candy has been in ill health for a long time. In fact, her health is why she had to pass putting on the con to others. At the con last year, she asked all of us concom to stay on the stage for a few minutes as we were kicking off the Saturday night entertainment. She gave us all angel bear beanie babies and told us we were her angels. It makes me tear up just thinking about it.

I'm going to miss her, and I wish I'd have stayed closer. You know how that goes, we get caught up in our own lives and doing our own thing, we sometimes let friends drift away. *sigh*
