    Dear Lee, Beth, and John,
    I didn’t find out about your mom’s passing until after her funeral. I am so sorry for your loss. I really think you guys were so blessed to have her in your lives for such a long time, because not all of us are fortunate enough for our parents to live into their 90’s! She really was a beautiful woman, both inside and out, and SUCH a SWEET and GRACIOUS LADY!!! Please know I am praying for the eternal rest of her soul with God in Heaven where there is no pain and suffering at all. Know, also, that all three of you are in my prayers for grace and strength from God to bear and heal from your loss at this sad time in your lives. I
    know you all have many beautiful memories you shared with your mom, and please let those help to comfort you. Sincerely, Norma Aubey Lewis

    My sincere thoughts and prayers to all of Mrs Campbell’s family, and love ones. Words could never express the deep feelings of the lost of such a loving, careing woman who is loved by many. It’s amazing how she touched so many people, many of whom we will never know. Even though I could never know your personal feeling of loss, I do know my own feelings of loosing a Mother.
