I knew Camilla professionally for 30 years and shared so much laughter. She loved to remember when, at the age of 3, my daughter burst into song while Camilla cut her hair. Camilla encouraged her to sing every verse of "Big Yellow Taxi" as she paused the haircut to tap her feet and smile that radiant smile. We adored Camilla and will miss her. Rest in peace, dear lady.

In early 1977 I came to the United States from Beirut Lebanon to seek College and I ended up choosing Wilmington, Ohio and Wilmington College to pursue my education. During that year, I was introduced to the Budrey's (Isaac, Olive, Dolores, Camilla & Emeline) since Ike's parents were from that region of the world. I got to know the family and other relatives from both Wilmington and Fort Wayne Indiana and pretty much became a member of their family, a son to Isaac & Olive, and a brother to the three daughters. I remember many good laughs and many good jokes we shared during the time I visited them, especially Thanksgivings, Christmas and picnics on weekends. Camilla has fought a courageous fight in the latter part of her life, and I know that she is in good hands above. I am glad that I knew her and I cherished all that time that we spent getting to know each others. She will be dearly missed by many; however, the important things is what she has left behind , her memories and the friendship and love that she shared with many. My thoughts and prayers to Dolores & Emeline and to all of her big family and relatives in Fort Wayne. May God Bless her soul and God Bless you all.
Sincerely,
Brother Fadi

I have so many wonderful memories of Bob and Camilla. They were the best neighbors and so much fun to be around. Bonfires on weekends and Friday night dinners on the boat are a favorite memory. I loved that our families shared so much time together. We will all miss Camilla.
