While the family would love to see everyone in person, at this time there will only be a drive-by memorial. The family will wave at friends at the residence of Cassie Meeker on January 16th from 1:00-3:00. You are welcome to memorialize Candee from your vehicle in any way you like. Candee loved a celebration, so we will have a safe one for now, when we can gather together we will dance and sing.
