    Camille lived a block from my parents during Katrina. They were in Austin with me waiting out the storm. Camille checked on the house and found the electricity was out. She cleaned out ALL of the refrigerators and freezers so Mom would not have to deal with it later. Camille was very thoughtful and always looked out for them. May she rest in peace.

    TJ your mother met me when I was a 16 year old boy. Immediately she took a keen interest in me which develope into a mother's love. She had a presence like no other. She watched after me and as we aged together her love only grew. We all need the air we breath to live, however we all as humans need love. Your mother with here love for me breathed life in to me. There so may stories I could tell must should be edited company but she loved and cared for me from the day we met. Lord knows why! I loved her and you son it has been to long that I didn't she my mom let us not let it be to long that I don't see you. You and along with many more keep her memory alive..

    I met Camelle when I was 15 years old. She was my bigger than life protector. When I moved back to Beaumont her house was a block away from my parents. We reunited our friendship. Through the years we have remained in touch. Camille, I will join you one day and we can dance and laugh again my friend! Love to her family - she loved you all so much!!!

    You are no longer in pain and you are free to do anything your heart desires. We were 3 in the house, mom went to heaven, then 2 and you went and now there is 1.. I know that y'all will watch over me but it isn't the same as if y'all were here.. I love you Pata and I will miss seeing you when I wake up. Hugs and kisses. ❤️
