“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” Denise Escobar was exactly that, one candle that lit the fire in so many people’s lives and always knowing it never shortened hers by even a minute. She gave endlessly and only took when she absolutely had to. She will be missed by many and carried on by many more.
