Candace brought a window of sophistication, glamour, and thought to our somewhat provincial Bay Area bubble that we remember fondly. It was a pleasure to have known her. You were a mentor to her Ben, thanks for staying in touch with one of the lost or quiet ones on our dwindling classmate list. Tom Skinner
