There will never be another quite like our boy. ? We’ll miss him forever.”

“I’m glad that so many of you have loved the show. It’s meant as much to us as it has to you guys,” the mom of three said, choking up. “We are going through a grieving process because we love where we are and the people we work with.”
Candace also took a moment to praise her cast and highlight the bond they all share. “We’ve had these friendships for more than 30 years and it’s just sad to leave them,” she said. “Have tears with us and hug along with us, because that’s kind of what we need, is the comfort and the love.”
