I just learned of Cami's passing this evening. I think I last saw her at her baby shower for the twins. Prayers to all of Cami's family, but especially to her sister Kristi, a dear friend from college. Praying the loving arms of our heavenly father are felt in your sorrow, and that your sweet memories will be a soothing balm in the years to come. So many years have passed and we've lost touch, but when I think of you or tell stories of our college adventures, they bring a smile to my face. Praying for your family! Rejoicing in Cami's reunion with Christ and her victory over death!

I am so very sorry and just heartbroken about Cami’s passing. Cami was one of my oldest and dearest friends. We had such good times...family beach trips, shopping trips, outings to Dollywood and the park with our children to name just a few. Most of all I will miss long heart to heart talks with my sweet friend!!
We send our prayers and love to each of you!

I knew Cami when she worked with my sister, Edna Moreland, at Whittle Communications. She was so much fun and joy and I enjoyed many fun lunches with her and my sister. So many good times and we were so young! My sympathy to her family especially her sons.

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Cami at Whittle Communications and she was a dear friend of mine. We keep in touch for several years after they closed down. The picture I included are of her Whittle friends. My heart is breaking for the family and especially the boys that she loved so dearly. May God give you peace and comfort during this difficult time.

I’m so sadden to hear about this. We are driving to Ga today as I watched the beautiful service for a sweet friend. I First met Cami when she brought Nathan then the twins to Central Baptist’s newborn nursery! She adored her boys! I had 2 boys also so we bonded immediately. I got to spend our kids early years raising my kids at CBC with Cami & laughing a lot. Fast forward to a few years ago when David would bring the (grown up)boys to UT men’s basketball games & sit next to us... one game early last year, the boys were there & I told them that I knew them & how!!! Imagine their surprise when I told them I had changed their diapers!!! They were so sweet & have become my buddies cheering on the Vols! I had no idea that Cami was so sick (b/c Of stupid Covid, we aren’t sitting together at games) So when I heard, my 1st thoughts went to the boys. My heart breaks for you. But what I’ve seen in each of you is what Your mom gave you...her beautiful laughter, being able to talk to anyone, any age & the love she gave you for each other! I am thinking & sending prayers for your family. You were blessed with an amazing Christian mom, & she’ll always be your guiding light!
