God saw you getting weary. He did what He thought best. He put his arms around you and said, "come and rest". He opened up His golden gates on that heartbreaking day, and with His arms around you, you gently slipped away. It broke our hearts to loose you. You did not go alone. A part of us went with you. the day God called you home.

I'm Free

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free I'm following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I heard Him call I turned my back and left it all I could not stay another day To laugh, to love, to work or play Tasks left undone must stay that way I found that peace at the close of the day If my parting has left a void Then fill it with remembered joy A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss Ah, yes, these things I too will miss Be not burdened with times of sorrow I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow My life has been full, I've savored much Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch Perhaps my time seemed all too brief Don't lengthen it now with undue grief Lift up your heart and share with me God wanted me now, He set me free!

Mom...Ian asked me to marry him! I know you must be sooo excited as you always told me to tell him you loved him soo much too. It was on New Years Eve and yes I was surprised. I think the funniest thing was know one wanted to tell Auntie Pearl in fear that she would be as excited as you that she might blow the surprise! I can hear you laughing at that now...hahahahaha! It makes me sad to know had you known this surprise was going to take place so soon you might of gotten stronger and stayed for a little while longer to be apart of this special day which I will miss you so much on! I'm still undecided on if it will be in 2015 or 2016. But I do know it will be overlooking the last big trip I had with you; kayaking across the Fjord with the tablelands in the background. I think you would like that; a big chapter for me with the last big adventure with you all tied together.

We all missed you very much this Christmas. Your amazing sisters, Auntie Ada, Auntie Pearl and your niece and nephew Jimmy and Jacquelyn as well as their families made our Campbell Christmas so comforting and full of love. They took care of me like you would have had I been up with you. In remembrance of you I am going to try and spend every other Christmas with someone from our Campbell side of the family. Another big surprise I got this Christmas was a present; a purse made by Kat from your red Danier Leather jacket which was designed in the shape of a heart and the best part, a picture of you with a saying, "Young at Heart". By far the best gift I got all Christmas I love it and I know you would love it too.

Well your memory is still strong with me but I miss your voice soo much, I love you mom and I'll keep you close with me forever xoxoxoxoxoxxo

Caroline, We missed you in the family this Christmas. We did share the holidays with Rebecca and got to know Ian.
It was a very special time for us as Rebecca and Ian were engaged on New Year's Eve in Phoenix at the Scottsdale Princess.
I know she was the love of your life and that you would be very pleased with the engagement. Rebecca is a beautiful young lady of whom you can Beverly proud.
So sad that you could not be here.
I know you and Daddy would never miss a family gathering.
I love you and we will not forget.

So sad but so true Pearl. She thought more about the children than we even knew. She sent baby gifts to my grandchildren. She had Jimmy's Stanford invitation framed which we found among her things later.The holidays will be especially sad without her.It will be good to spend time with Rebecca.

Sweet Caroline, my sister. I miss you so much and think about you often. There are many things that I think about and remember about you and will never ever forget. I have expressed them in many ways, but wish that I had told you when you were alive. The holidays are getting close and I know how much you were a fan of Christmas. When you lived out West and when you lived East you use to always bake a cake and send it in the mail to Mommie, it was always a fruit cake. I remember how much time you would put into it, so much fruit for Mommie, cause you knew how much she loved fruit. You use to talk about it on the phone with Mommie for hours and tell her that you were getting ready for Christmas and that you were getting ahead of the rush, you were always early. I remember the time when you and Dave lived in Edmonton and you bought Mommie and Daddy a lazy boy chair and sent it through the Sears Catalogue. It was such an expensive purchase, but you wanted them to know that you were doing well and that you could afford it. They were just delighted about that chair, it meant so much to them. They bragged about it for years. Daddy got so much use out of it. I think that it got him hooked on the lazy boy chairs, because it became his favorite, how did you know? You were so kind and caring and gave with all your heart. You were always so generous. I will always think about you at Christmas time, because you gave more than you could afford. You bought your daughter, Rebecca the best of the best presents. I know because Michael and Nicole were always a little bit envious of Rebecca's new toys. Rebecca always had the newest and the most trendy toys, she was so lucky. The best Barbie Dolls, the best Cabbage Patch Dolls, whatever was new on the market, Rebecca had it. You were always up-to-date on the latest toys. You even new what the boys were in to, cause you always bought Michael all the Ninja Turtle's and he was so delighted. I remember him saying and bragging about what his Auntie Caroline got him for Christmas. He was always so pleased with his presents from you. Christmas is getting close and I am missing you already. It will be hard for all of us this year. I wish you were still here with us to bake a cake, or just to be here to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. You were always the first one on the phone, if you were far to call and express your love to us all. It will be tough my dear sister, Caroline and always remember that we are all watching over and taking care of your most precious treasure, your beautiful daughter, Rebecca that you have left us with, thank you for this gift. We love you. RIP, your sister Pearl

When I came back home,you were a teenager, full of fun and the life of the party.
I miss you.

'There's a blaze of light in every word,it doesn't matter what you heard, the holy or the broken hallelujah.'
Sweet Caroline,
The hallelujah music from the celebration of your life was so beautiful.
I can't get the music out of my head.
Our family is still suffering from this tragic year.
We didn't see it coming, just 3 months after Daddy passed away.
The last time I saw you,you were grieving with us, you were at the house at 6am after driving in from Cambridge. I had flown in the night before but you were always an early riser and anxious to get the day started. You had flowers for Daddy's graveside. You spent the whole day with us knowing how Mommie and Richard were still grieving.
We talked about Rebecca. I could see how proud you were of her and how your eyes would light up by just mentioning her name.She was your pride and joy.She is sad and misses you too.
Always private and positive about your health you tried to assure me that you were getting better. You blew it off with a kiss and a hug and drove back to Cambridge that evening.
Now we are a broken family, still greiving the loss of you and Daddy.
It gives me some peace when I think that you are together. He was so protective of you. You had a great love for each other. We continue to cling to happy family memories in our sadness.Mommie talks about you every day. She is so sad now that you are gone. She misses all of your phone calls and visits.
I will forever miss your wonderful laugh, phone calls and love of family.
The poem that you gave to Daddy on his 75th birthday celebration in Deer Lake says it best;
There is no trick to frienship, but here is a key...Don't tell all you know or judge all you see.
Don't think of yourself when sympathgy you give. To handel yourself, use your head. To handel others, use your heart instead.
Talk with those you're comforting of times when loved ones lived.
Respect the needs of the elderly, help them when you can. They like to have your company as much as your helping hand. Criticize you never should. In the worst of us there is some good.Be the first to forgive after a fight, when sufferings' caused , it matteres not who's right.
Don't wait til tomorrow, do your best today. Opportunity comes but once don't waste it away.
Be careful of the words you choose, know what they mean before you use.
If to friends you are true you'll have more every day. If you misuse your friends , they'll soon drift away.
Be friendly, loving, good and kind.
A happy day you'll always find.

Rest in peace "Sweet Caroline", my baby sister gone too soon.
I love you tons.
Your loving sister,
Ada Campbell Chow
