Growing up, my cousins and I swore off having kids. Funny how that turns around. Of course, Camille claimed to not like kids, but she loved my son and daughter! I remember when I had Nikolas and brought him over for one of the holidays—probably Christmas. She held him a long time and I thought—yup! She’s next! And she was—she got a dog! 😂

Camille loved her friends, her dogs, and her family passionately. She was a dedicated soul and infectious to anyone who was around her. I will remember her most for her wit and charm—which I’m almost positive has rubbed off on my daughter in so many ways. She will be missed dearly. Rest ❤️
