My condolences to the families of Campsey. She was a sweetheart of a friend that I have missed dearly since she left Houtzdale Apts #103. It took me the longest time to get used to her not coming through my door. I loved and adopted her as my own grandmother.

When I married Greg, Campsey became my grandma too. Having lost my grandparents when I was young, I was thrilled. We spent a lot of time together. She always brought a smile to my face. She could be feisty and cranky and I wouldn't have traded it for the world. I am going to miss you gram, more than anyone will ever know. R.I.P. gram. I love you
