Leroy and family, my heart hurts for you. I met Camille at work (I wish it was under different circumstances). It was an honor to meet and get to know her all these years caring for her. She had a warm heart and beautiful spirit. She will be missed by many. Praying for all of you during this difficult time
~ Georgenne (4th floor infusion nurse, UNMCCC)

Leroy Chavez Posted at 10:51am

Thank you Georgenne and all the nurses for how well you took care of Camille. She loved each of you. I want to get by next Thursday (the day she would get her infusion) to bring my kids to meet you all. Love you guys. Leroy

Love, Brian and Jennie Ginn

Leroy, Edna and Family

Our hearts are filled with sadness over the passing of Camille. But, we are sure her loving heart and voice will continue to visit those whom she loved. Her soul will always remain strong, loving and beautiful. Though she has completed her mortal journey, the seeds of her love will remain with us! In keeping with her religious faith she dwells in the hands of the Lord whom she loves so well. Her yesterday was, so will her tomorrows be in the hands of the Lord she loved so well!

I submit condolences on behalf of Sue, our family and myself. May time bring solace to your grieving hearts!

Your cousin,
Oscar S. Ramirez
