My first post seems to have disappeared and I can’t just let it go without posting again. Camille, I knew the first day I met you and Doyle that you were both in my life for keeps. You and I enjoyed our thrifting trips, trips to Atlanta, trying out restaurants, amidst many other fun times we had together. I thoroughly enjoyed taking care of Doyle a couple of days a week as his health began to deteriorate. He taught me so many things about what it was like to see the world through his eyes. He really lived, loved and laughed; he sucked up every joy that life threw his way. You both became my adopted siblings. I know how you missed him and never stopped missing your parents. You were a family girl without a family and so you became my family. When I moved to South Carolina, I begged you to come with us. You were a true Floridian at heart and I wasn’t. But the miles did not separate the love and friendship we shared and I am so happy you got to visit me in my new neck of the woods. Your smile lit up a room, your heart covered a mountain and I miss you dearly already. Give Doyle big hugs and kisses for me and I know you are already back with your family enjoying what you so dearly missed while waiting to join them. Rest in peace my dear sister and friend. What a beautiful person you were!

Dear Camille,

So many memories of years working together, easy times, tough times, fun, laughter, tears and everything in between; all in all, a great run.

I will always remember the beautiful fragrances that you wore; every day I would ask, what are you wearing? It smells sooooo good, and it seemed to me that every day, it was a different one, for years!!!!! The jewelry too, beautiful, bold pieces and lots of them, and also clothing and bags, scarves, ponchos, umbrellas and accessories, you were so girlie! Hey Camile, how about the makeup? I’m telling you, you were over the top! Dressed to the nines every day, I never saw you not looking your absolute best, every hair in place, every single day of all those years I knew you.

And Doyle, how you adored him, how you cared for him, so devoted, and in all those years, I never once heard you complain about it, what a sister, amazing!

I had not seen you since, probably 2017 or 18, the last time I saw you, we had lunch at my favorite German bakery, after that, it seemed we were always making dates and braking dates. I was out of the country during the fall and winter of 2019 and when I finally got back in February, I heard you were sick; COVID made it impossible to visit and nobody had details. Then, I heard you were out of the hospital and getting therapy, I ran into Miha and she said you were texting her, that sounded like great news! But who is to know what tomorrow will bring, and although it seems like you fought courageously for some time, let's face it, you had a whole team cheering you on from the other side, your parents and Doyle, and I guess they won. Now you rest in peace, surrounded by all your loved ones, no more pain, fear nor sorrow, only light. RIP.

I celebrate your life Camille, I hope I can to be half the sister you were.

Cheers,

Teresa

Camille was the receptionist for many years in my late husband's office, IDS a.. She left that job after my husband's passing and I definitely never saw her much after that period but I remember all my encounters with her over the years and how much I admired how she handled the life she was dealt. She loved her brother Doyle And never seemed to resent her role as his caretaker.. She loved her accessories and was always dressed to the 9.'s. .. I am sad that she is gone nonetheless .. And did not have nearly enough time to enjoy this stage of her life. Rest in peace

Camille was a very special friend and like a sister to me. She came to visit my spouse, Jason and I in Denver back in 2009. We had a wonderful visit. She loved going to The Molly Brown House (museum) and Butter Fly World. She also loved Estes Park. We went to a fair there where they were selling jewelry and how she loved it! She would always remember us during the holidays and birthday’s and I loved her heartfelt text messages. I’m gonna miss you my dear friend and sister. I’m sure you are dancing up there in heaven with Doyle. ❤️🌹
