My deepest condolences to the Cordella family. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. I met this sweet lady through church and worked with her a few times. I am so thankful to have known her, she was quite special. My heart aches and she will be greatly missed.

Candy was such a wonderful soul and I thoroughly enjoyed our talks and discussions about Parkinson. She was able to share valuable insight that was helpful to me as my husband was diagnosed with Parkinson a few years back. Candy was a dedicated Meals on Wheels Volunteer at the Habersham Senior Center. The clients loved her and so did the staff at the center. Our condolences to the family, she will be greatly missed.
