Candice is survived by her loving family, her husband Roger McKay, daughter Jamela Dama, sisters Robyn Ferguson of St. Michael, many beloved aunts and uncles from the Herald family, Littleghost family, Redroad family, Leftbear family and Blueshield family and treasured nieces, nephews and cousins.

Those who left this world before her include her parents, grandparent, sister Kimberlee Redroad and many other dear relatives.
