Here are two very pretty girls, who come from a large family in which everyone is undeniably beautiful and unbelievably nice. It’s true, almost sickeningly so.
And, lucky me, this family has been a part of my life for almost 30 years. There on the right is April, who has been my classmate, roommate, bridesmaid, traveling companion, and all-around best friend. On the left is her sister Camille, whom I also considered a dear friend.
Sadly, Camille passed away last weekend.
Hearts everywhere have broken at this news. Camille was a thoughtful, generous, artistic person, and our world is noticeably less bright without her. Please keep the Knudsons, Santos, Jordans, Knapps, and Hogates in your thoughts as they endure tomorrow’s memorial service and, for the long term, life without their daughter, wife, mother, sister, and aunt. Camille was a blessing to us all, and she will be missed.
