planted in me.
Miss Doris will be missed.
She was such a sweet and wonderful lady!

we love and miss you dearly. Ivy the torch has been passed. Run on. I witnessed the love and honor you and your family poured
into Nan. Nan loved and appreciated her family and friends. You all were her pride and joy. Ms. Campbell, who quickly became
our "Nan" was truly a virtuous woman who loved The Lord. My family and I were drawn to her love, wisdom, beautiful
smile, quick wit and fabulous fashion sense. She was truly and inspiration to all of us. A Soldier for Christ leaves the
battle field with honor. Well done Nan, well done. I love you.
Sonja Barnes, Fayetteville GA
