Mom...Ian asked me to marry him! I know you must be sooo excited as you always told me to tell him you loved him soo much too. It was on New Years Eve and yes I was surprised. I think the funniest thing was know one wanted to tell Auntie Pearl in fear that she would be as excited as you that she might blow the surprise! I can hear you laughing at that now...hahahahaha! It makes me sad to know had you known this surprise was going to take place so soon you might of gotten stronger and stayed for a little while longer to be apart of this special day which I will miss you so much on! I'm still undecided on if it will be in 2015 or 2016. But I do know it will be overlooking the last big trip I had with you; kayaking across the Fjord with the tablelands in the background. I think you would like that; a big chapter for me with the last big adventure with you all tied together.

We all missed you very much this Christmas. Your amazing sisters, Auntie Ada, Auntie Pearl and your niece and nephew Jimmy and Jacquelyn as well as their families made our Campbell Christmas so comforting and full of love. They took care of me like you would have had I been up with you. In remembrance of you I am going to try and spend every other Christmas with someone from our Campbell side of the family. Another big surprise I got this Christmas was a present; a purse made by Kat from your red Danier Leather jacket which was designed in the shape of a heart and the best part, a picture of you with a saying, "Young at Heart". By far the best gift I got all Christmas I love it and I know you would love it too.

Well your memory is still strong with me but I miss your voice soo much, I love you mom and I'll keep you close with me forever xoxoxoxoxoxxo

Caroline, We missed you in the family this Christmas. We did share the holidays with Rebecca and got to know Ian.
It was a very special time for us as Rebecca and Ian were engaged on New Year's Eve in Phoenix at the Scottsdale Princess.
I know she was the love of your life and that you would be very pleased with the engagement. Rebecca is a beautiful young lady of whom you can Beverly proud.
So sad that you could not be here.
I know you and Daddy would never miss a family gathering.
I love you and we will not forget.
Ada

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

So sad but so true Pearl. She thought more about the children than we even knew. She sent baby gifts to my grandchildren. She had Jimmy's Stanford invitation framed which we found among her things later.The holidays will be especially sad without her.It will be good to spend time with Rebecca.

Sweet Caroline, my sister. I miss you so much and think about you often. There are many things that I think about and remember about you and will never ever forget. I have expressed them in many ways, but wish that I had told you when you were alive. The holidays are getting close and I know how much you were a fan of Christmas. When you lived out West and when you lived East you use to always bake a cake and send it in the mail to Mommie, it was always a fruit cake. I remember how much time you would put into it, so much fruit for Mommie, cause you knew how much she loved fruit. You use to talk about it on the phone with Mommie for hours and tell her that you were getting ready for Christmas and that you were getting ahead of the rush, you were always early. I remember the time when you and Dave lived in Edmonton and you bought Mommie and Daddy a lazy boy chair and sent it through the Sears Catalogue. It was such an expensive purchase, but you wanted them to know that you were doing well and that you could afford it. They were just delighted about that chair, it meant so much to them. They bragged about it for years. Daddy got so much use out of it. I think that it got him hooked on the lazy boy chairs, because it became his favorite, how did you know? You were so kind and caring and gave with all your heart. You were always so generous. I will always think about you at Christmas time, because you gave more than you could afford. You bought your daughter, Rebecca the best of the best presents. I know because Michael and Nicole were always a little bit envious of Rebecca's new toys. Rebecca always had the newest and the most trendy toys, she was so lucky. The best Barbie Dolls, the best Cabbage Patch Dolls, whatever was new on the market, Rebecca had it. You were always up-to-date on the latest toys. You even new what the boys were in to, cause you always bought Michael all the Ninja Turtle's and he was so delighted. I remember him saying and bragging about what his Auntie Caroline got him for Christmas. He was always so pleased with his presents from you. Christmas is getting close and I am missing you already. It will be hard for all of us this year. I wish you were still here with us to bake a cake, or just to be here to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. You were always the first one on the phone, if you were far to call and express your love to us all. It will be tough my dear sister, Caroline and always remember that we are all watching over and taking care of your most precious treasure, your beautiful daughter, Rebecca that you have left us with, thank you for this gift. We love you. RIP, your sister Pearl

Sweet Caroline,
I left home when you were still a little sister, along with Pearl and Richard.
You were the sweetest and the prettiest little baby doll when you started walking and talking.
When I came back home,you were a teenager, full of fun and the life of the party.
I miss you.
And love you tons.
In memory,
Ada

" HALLELUJAH"
'There's a blaze of light in every word,it doesn't matter what you heard, the holy or the broken hallelujah.'
Sweet Caroline,
The hallelujah music from the celebration of your life was so beautiful.
I can't get the music out of my head.
Our family is still suffering from this tragic year.
We didn't see it coming, just 3 months after Daddy passed away.
The last time I saw you,you were grieving with us, you were at the house at 6am after driving in from Cambridge. I had flown in the night before but you were always an early riser and anxious to get the day started. You had flowers for Daddy's graveside. You spent the whole day with us knowing how Mommie and Richard were still grieving.
We talked about Rebecca. I could see how proud you were of her and how your eyes would light up by just mentioning her name.She was your pride and joy.She is sad and misses you too.
Always private and positive about your health you tried to assure me that you were getting better. You blew it off with a kiss and a hug and drove back to Cambridge that evening.
Now we are a broken family, still greiving the loss of you and Daddy.
It gives me some peace when I think that you are together. He was so protective of you. You had a great love for each other. We continue to cling to happy family memories in our sadness.Mommie talks about you every day. She is so sad now that you are gone. She misses all of your phone calls and visits.
I will forever miss your wonderful laugh, phone calls and love of family.
The poem that you gave to Daddy on his 75th birthday celebration in Deer Lake says it best;
"FRIENDSHIP"
There is no trick to frienship, but here is a key...Don't tell all you know or judge all you see.
Don't think of yourself when sympathgy you give. To handel yourself, use your head. To handel others, use your heart instead.
Talk with those you're comforting of times when loved ones lived.
Respect the needs of the elderly, help them when you can. They like to have your company as much as your helping hand. Criticize you never should. In the worst of us there is some good.Be the first to forgive after a fight, when sufferings' caused , it matteres not who's right.
Don't wait til tomorrow, do your best today. Opportunity comes but once don't waste it away.
Be careful of the words you choose, know what they mean before you use.
If to friends you are true you'll have more every day. If you misuse your friends , they'll soon drift away.
Be friendly, loving, good and kind.
A happy day you'll always find.

Rest in peace "Sweet Caroline", my baby sister gone too soon.
I love you tons.
Your loving sister,
Ada Campbell Chow

Caroline,

You were always soo good to me. Thank you! You thought so much of Mommie, Daddy, Rebecca and all the family. You spoke often to me of Rebecca and how proud you were of her and how you loved your little girl. I totally loved being your big brother and will miss your phone calls.

Your calls always ended with "I loves you Scottie"

You were such a gentle sweet person and I know sometimes things were difficult for you, now you are at peace with Daddy, our brother Billy and Richards baby son in Heaven. We will miss you always, you were truly one of a kind.

I love you and may God Bless you and keep you my little sister.

I Loves You Caroline! xox

Mom,
I have wanted to write you something for some time but finding the right words was never my strongest. And how do I begin when I wasn't ready to say good-bye. There is soo much I needed to say to you and share with you, I wasn't ready for this and even after a month I am still not ready to write this message.
You were my biggest fan; there was nothing I could do that would be wrong in your eyes. When I was little I was your doll that you dressed up like a prize...and I loved it. We had the same humor whether I was funny or not you would always...always laugh at my jokes. We could laugh even with just a quick gaze into each other's eyes, those were the best. Every birthday with you was one that you would try and make better than the last and every one of them were amazing.
I miss your calls to me and wish now more than ever before that I was closer to make you stronger. Although you were weak you were one of the strongest positive thinking people I know. I remember when you first told me you were diagnosed with breast cancer; I questioned you for at least 10 minutes thinking you couldn't be telling the truth, because you were so calm. Then you surprised me with the bravest answer I have heard from anyone, “There's nothing I can do about it, so no point in getting upset about it”. To watch you in the end was very upsetting because I knew this was coming but I didn't want to believe it....Its so very very very very hard to imagine life without your mother.....harder than I ever thought. But it was hard to watch you hurt yourself for so very long, so sad on the inside so full of life on the outside.
There are so many wishes I have that I just want you to know because you are and always will be apart of all of them.
- I wish you loved Newfoundland
- I wish you didn't move away
- I wish you never got depressed
- I wish you never knew what pain killers were
- I wish you could have been happier especially when I wasn't around
- I wish you loved yourself as much as you loved me
- I wish I knew you were feeling this sick
- I wish I could have saved you
- I wish I had another summer in Newfoundland with you.
- I wish we lived closer together
? I wish you could have been at my wedding
- I wish you could have been with me to hold my hand for my first born.
- I wish my kids could have known you and how great of a grandma you would have been.
- I wish I could have had one more hug, kiss, laugh with you.
- I wish we could have grown old together.
- I wish I could have saved you
- I wish that you look over me until I see you again.
I love you soooo oooooooo soooo much. And miss you terribly every day, every hour, every minute. I'm so sorry this happened and I wish you could have had more because you gave me everything a daughter could ask for, except more time.
Looking forward to joining you one day in heaven please keep me safe,

Your loving daughter,
Rebecca xoxoxoxoxoxxooooxoxoxoxoxoxox

What I remember most about my Auntie Caroline was her laugh. Anybody that knew her knew her joyous bellow. She would light up the room with her elated spirit, laughter and humour.

She was similar to her Father, her humour also had a hint of mischievousness; she loved to tease and torment. I remember she would tickle my brother and I swear she was pinching us at the same time. But, we fought back, she would be busy inside and we would have been kicked outside, where kids should be. We would take off our snow suits and set them up outside the door as if we were still wearing them, we would knock on the door and then run away. This prank went on for years and we got her every time!

I spent a lot of time with my Auntie Caroline, my mom and she was best friends. I remember when she lived in Whitby; there were a lot of celebrations then. My family and I would get in the car and drive an hour almost every weekend or at least every holiday. I remember Halloween seemed to be a favorite at that time.

Then I remember Auntie Caroline moved to NL, it seemed whatever her family did, so did ours, a year later we had moved too! She was like my second mom then, I looked up to her, and even though she was strict, she taught us respect and discipline. I understand her now that I am Mother. But, most of all she was like any other Campbell, thoughtful, giving and loving. She loved my brother and me, just like we were her own. We held a special place in her heart and I will never forget that about my Aunt. I miss you Auntie Caroline, I hope you are at peace now.

I love you tons my duckie…. Xoxoxo
Love, Nicole

Caroline, you're gone, but you will never be forgotten...we were close sisters. Talked often about everyday happenings...whether it was about Mommie , Richard, ,or any other family member...she liked to be in the know of what was happening....such a big family...loosing daddy was hard on her, she loved him so much!! She called me numerous times about going to visit his grave site to lay flowers...always so eager!! I am so glad to have spent a lot of time seeing and talking to you this past year, but I will truly miss your many calls and hearing your voice reminding me that you loved me....and in closing I would say "I love you hon"....you will be in my heart forever Caroline....xoxo Donna

Caroline, where do I begin to tell a story about my most precious sister, who held a very special place in my heart. I would like to share with you some of my memories of her.

Her infectious laugh. She could walk into a crowded room and make everyone laugh. She would always be teasing and joking with the people she loved the most. You were the life of a party!

As siblings growing up, Mommie would dress us in matching outfits and people would ask if we were twins. Caroline was my older sister, she was two years older than me and I was always getting in trouble, she would run and tell on me if I was doing something wrong. I realized later in life that she loved me and was only looking out for me.

Caroline was sick a lot as a young child and I remember the time she fell down the furnace in Deer Lake, Mommie nursed her back to health.

When we were teenagers, we got our first job in a plastic factory. Caroline was the favourite at work, she worked the hardest and the fastest. She later bought herself a brand new car and drove it all the way to Mt.Vernon, Ills. She was so young, courageous and feared nothing.

When we got older and became Mothers, our children played together like brothers and sisters. We were all so close. Rebecca, I know that you have lost your mother, but I will always be there for you, as Caroline would have wanted it that way. I can hear her words to me, please watch over Rebecca for me.

Her wonderful spirit, she lived her life to the fullest.

Her determination to better herself. Caroline was always taking a course, or enrolled in school, or starting a business, and at the same time holding down a job and raising a beautiful daughter.

She was the closet to Mommie, she loved to visit frequently and always confided in her about her life. No bond was as strong as yours and Mommies. She loved Daddy and was always so special to him. He worried about her often and spoke about her a lot.

Life was not easy for you my dear sister. You endured two back surgery's a bowel surgery, diagnosed with breast cancer as well as suffered many many more complications with your health. You were in pain and agony yet you remained so calm, upbeat and positive about your situation. You were strong, yet you were vulnerable.

Caroline you were too young to go, but I am so glad that you are finally at peace. You will be missed so much by all of us. You have reunited with Daddy and come to your final resting place. As you would have said yourself..."Love you tons". Rip, Caroline.

Dear Rebecca, Wally and I and Jay are thinking of you today and in the days ahead.God Bless you and your Moms family at this time.

Rebecca & The Campbell Family,
We were sooo shocked & saddened to hear about your mother's passing. I remember her as an energenic & fun person. Her laughter was contagious and she was always the life of a get together by being so upbeat. You just couldn't help but laugh with her. I am glad that through Facebook we were still able to keep in contact. I will miss her comments on pictures and the nice words she would send me every now and again. I am sure she will be sadly missed by you and the rest of her family, but memories live on and you have lots of those to cherish close to your heart. Think about the good times and smile....I'm sure that's what she would want you to do. We will continue to keep you all in our thought's & prayer's.
We love you, Rebecca, and are here for you always.
Love & Hugs,
Aunt Shirley,
Cousin Trina & Family
