What a wonderful person she was. I have lots of great memories of her and Amy-my grandmother-sitting and laughing. I also recall when I was about 8, we stopped to see her on our way to Georgia from Detroit. She put my grape juice in a blender to froth it up and the morning, and I thought that was the greatest thing ever. I was blessed many years later to live in Tennessee and get to see her more frequently, and got to drive her to Detroit for a wedding. She was kind, good humored, and caring. I take comfort in knowing that the Campbell sisters are all together again, laughing and telling stories. All our love to her.
