Such a great loss.  Richard and I have many special memories of Camilla from high school and college.  Gladly, we saw her in the past decade. Our prayers and thoughts are with her family.

Well do I remember meeting Camilla in tenth grade at GHS. In addition to being a beautiful girl, she had a warm, outgoing, kind personality. Camilla had an air of inclusivity that made others feel special. I am saddened to know that she is gone. I know Camilla has been a blessing to all who knew her and that she was well-loved and will be missed. I send my condolences to Camilla's loved ones. I was fortunate to have known her as part of that halcyon time at GHS..
