Camille was one of my favorite people in the entire world. She was always there to cheer me up or make me laugh or to lovingly call me a nerd. I miss her so much and I know that the rest of her family and friends will miss her as well.
Eva Simpkins left a message on August 28, 2014:
I didn't know Camille very well but i saw her in FBLA, and soccer, and band she was always so sweet and nice to everyone, she carried around the most adorable little stuffed animal lamb and she always wore a skirt and her soccer jacket. Everyone that knew her absolutely loved her, she will be so missed.

As Teen Coordinator I remember Camille fondly from Summer Reading last year. I always enjoyed watching her leave the library with an arm load of books. she attended some of the Summer Reading programs and was always willing to help. she would always give me ideas to help make the programs better in some way. she is the one teen that I could get to laugh at my corny jokes. getting her to smile at my corny jokes just made my day.

Camille rode my school bus. She was always so pleasant. Every day when she got off she would say Happy Birthday Mrs. Cathy. I would say Camille it's not my birthday. She said well if I tell you every day then I won't miss it. Will truly miss her beautiful smile. Praying for you.
