My beloved mother, Dorothy Campbell, left us at dawn and I already miss her with all my heart. She was caring and generous, organized and creative, smart and tech savvy, independent and principled, active in her community and lovingly devoted to her family. She had a soft spot for teddy bears, Snoopy cards and dogs of all persuasions.
Mom was a talented musician; the soundtrack of my childhood was her beautiful piano and organ music. Although she tried, I didn't inherit her musical gifts or culinary skills, nor her ability to keep a tidy house.
Mom and my late father, Bill Campbell, were blessed to share 63 years of wonderful adventures and beautiful gardens together.
Rest in peace, Mom. You made a difference.
