  12. Donna Medeiros Blair says:

    Dearest Cameron Family, Tears are flowing as I right this to you all. Lisa was one of my dearest friends. We had a lot of fun and laughs together. I am so happy that in the past year we could still laugh with each other and try not to cry about what was to come. She knew this day was coming and was at peace with it; she was worried about how her family would cope with it all. She loved you all so much. My heart felt sympathy to you all. Mrs. and Mrs. Cameron, you should be so proud of the wonderful job you did raising such a beautiful daughter. Kevin, Erin, and Kerry you had one of the greatest gift of having Lisa for a sister. I will miss her laugh, her love, and her friendship. I am so blessed that she was in my life and my family’s life. Blair family and Medeiros family.

    Dear Cameron Family, Lisa is a one in a million person. I met her 40 years ago in 3rd grade at the Wildwood School. She will always be a part of my heart. I am so blessed to have been her friend. Kerry,I will always cherish getting the call from her last spring since so many years had gone by. We got to reminisce about all the happy times we spent together and shared our eternal bond of friendship with loving memories from our childhood. I told her I’ll always love her. She just never changed. Her happy disposition, sense of humor, easy going nature, caring ways and positive outlook on life were still the same. Lisa touched my life in a very special way that day to help me believe that “each day is a gift from God.”Heaven just got another angel. My love and prayers and are with you and your family. Cindy Mucci Twombly

    I never met Lisa but I have known Eleanor and Billy for many years. I know the pain a parent feels on the loss of a child no matter how old that child is. I remember the words of the late Fr. Mackin of St. Thomas Church when he told me I had angels in heaven to look over me. You now have your very own special angel.

  20. Michele Giroux Higgs says:

My prayers are with you in this sad time. I pray that my brother Kevin is there waiting for her. He loved Kizzie!

    Dear Kerry, Dave, Dan & Mike, and the rest of the Cameron family:
    We are truly sorry to hear about the loss of your sister. I just found out this evening and am sorry that we were not able to pay our respects to your family.
