Camille, my Cami, my favorite girl, my saving Grace, you were my best friend and I'm so blessed to call you, my Mom! You had a heart of gold, you loved everyone around you, all our friends, family, and any animal to cross your path, you taught me everything I know especially how to cook (until I taught you LOL) your smile was so contagious, you lit up the room soon as you walked in! The love that you showed not just us, but everyone will never go unnoticed! Your strength, charisma, your ability to love anyone more than yourself was beyond the most amazing thing I've ever seen. Mom you're simply one of the best people put on this earth and you did what you had to do and now God needs you up in heaven to live, laugh and love from up above. Dad was always our spirit in the sky and now you both are. I love you, your daughter Kaila.
