    I will always hold a place in my heart for Camilla and remember her as a devoted mother to James and Rob..They were her delight! I became aware of her love for special people as I listened to her many teaching experiences with them. We had many laughs of experiences we could relate to growing up in the 50s and 60s.. I still chuckle as I can hear her say "God bless a milk cow". Only Camilla!....I loved her kindred Spirit and will miss her much.

    I am so saddened that we didn't know of Camilla's passing. We knew she was very sick and have sent emails and got no answers. Please accept our sincere sympathy as you go through this time of grief. Camilla was a beautiful spirit. And I know we will see her again when we get there because she'll be waiting. God bless you all.

    I don't know if Camilla's family will ever receive this... I have only just learned that Camilla is gone and that saddens me greatly. Camilla and I were the best of friends between 1966 and 1970. We met at Camp Don Lee, wrote letters and visited eachother during the school year and shared some wo derful memories. Tried to find her several times through the years before the age of instant information and social media. God bless you my dear, dear friend. I know we will see each other again one day and what a joyful day that will be. (I still say, "God bless a milk cow!") Love you...
