Met Neil & Wilma, when they lived on Haley St. Next door to my Dad, Pat O'Brien. We stayed in touch as we raised our boys. Best memories are when new moved to Hawaii, they came & spent a week with us, very fun times. Traveled to Baha Mexico in our motor homes together , bad roads, bumpy rides, we talked about that for years. The four of us flew to Los Vegas in our Pipper Cherokee airplane, (Tony Hollar) pilot. Got conned into playing some kind of a game where here we ended up buying, a bunch of stuff we didn't need, but had some good laughs over it. Memories are a wonderful thing. Rip, Neil & Wilma

We had precious memories of Wilma and Niel when we were in Hawaii together. We took walks on the beach, admired sunset and even took vacation/holidays together.
The camerons held a special place in our hearts and memories.

Thank you Kent for sending the notification and pictures of our dear friends.
