    It has been many, many years since I have seen Camilla. I knew her only briefly during a two week stay at Camp Don-Lee back in August of 1970, but I remember she was such a sweet, caring, and compassionate camp counselor. So sorry to hear of her death..may she rest in peace.

    My first memory is seeing this striking elegant woman with fabulous manicured hands, driving a sports car with two handsome boys...wow ! I soon learned that Camilla was like a lion - fiercely protective of her boys, but also very proud. Her enthusiam for life and her laughter was contagious - never a dull moment. One of Camilla's greatest gifts was her mentoring and coaching -with Camilla in your corner, believing in you and cheering you on was the best. blessings abound in you Camilla - thank you, amanda

    Ms.Weber you will be missed. You helped me so much at Pine Valley and many years after. Anyone who has ever met you is better for knowing you. You gave me hope when I had non and showed me I can do anything I want as long as I didn't give up. I will miss you and I wish I could be in Wilmington to say good bye. God be with you and I will see you again on day. Love you always, Jacob Gough
