  1. My heart is broken. I remember and often think of so many things when we were so young, raising our children in Wichita. I remember enjoying summer evenings in your backyard. I remember your amazing ability to grow garden plants and flowers. I learned about Miracle Grow from you. I also remember our fabulous ski trips and marveling that we all came back whole 🙂 I remember what a special couple the two or you were. II’ve thought of both of you often. I can’t even fathom one of you without the other. Again, I’m heartbroken for you Camille and am sending you, Sarah, Andrew, & Jordan all of my heartfelt prayers. May God give all of you the strength to celebrate and always remember the special love you shared with your husband and dad. Love from afar. Jeanine Phillips

  2. So sorry for your loss Camille. Dick was such a good person and we enjoyed getting to know both of you serving at The Crossing. He is in the arms of His Savior.

  3. So sorry to hear this sad, sad news. I met Dick in the 70’s during the Coleman Company days and he would come to my parents house for parties! Always smiling and happy. Friendship grew when we all started our families. I loved reading Jeanine’s memories of when then the kids were little! So many fun times – school days, dinners, birthday parties, trips, watching fireworks together…the list goes on! I treasure them and think of you all fondly. Camille and kids, I am sorry for the loss of your wonderful husband and dad and am praying for you. With love from Gail Shaw Jabara
