    We are sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. She was a Very Special Person and my brother and myself always enjoyed talking with her everyday in the cafeteria at school. She wasnt afraid to help whenever it was needed and she was liked and respected by all of the kids at school. We will miss her very much and we will never forget what a kind and loving person she was.
    Love The Campbell Family
