Candace House gave me a place to put myself back together
that felt loving and peaceful.
- Family Survivor
On Easter Weekend of 2000, our daughter, Cory, 20-years-old, was murdered by an ex-boyfriend…We took our grandson into our care the same day that Cory’s body was found stuffed under a cottage.
My wife went into a deep depression soon after Cory’s death, angry at God for allowing this tragedy to befall our family. She reached an all-time low in 2004. She was put on medical leave, never to return to her chosen profession as an intensive care nurse.
By early 2007, our careers were decimated, increasing the anxiety level in our struggle to support our grandchild.
