My mom is at my brothers and I had a blood pressure problem. Please accept our condolences. Mom and boots were tight.

Cousins… I am very sorry to learn of Aunt Boots’ passing. I will always cherish her sweet and caring manner, her enthusiastic and joyful spirit, and her absolute devotion to her family. She was a jewel in the Diss-Campbell crown, and, I am sure, is enjoying her Heavenly reunion with family and friends. She was a blessing to all of us!

Tim and Kathy, I am so sorry to hear about Boots. In all these years I’ve known her, I cannot remember a time when she wasn’t smiling. She was a good woman who was always in a good mood. I always think of her on her birthday, and will continue to send up prayers for her. God bless you all .
