Mr. DeFelice, Suzanne, Claire and Gina,

I am sorry for the loss of your father and grandfather. He was a lovely man and he will be deeply missed. Sending you all my love and thoughts.

Claire - I remember your grandparents coming over for Sunday dinner when we were kids. He was a kind and caring person, just like you.

Mr. DeFelice, Suzanne, Claire and Gina,

I am so sorry for the loss of your father and grandfather. He was a lovely man and will be dearly missed. Sending you all my love and thoughts.

Claire - I remember us playing as kids and your grandparents coming over for Sunday dinner. Your grandfather was a kind and caring person, just like you. 

We were saddened to hear of your loss. Our hearts especially go out to Mary and David whom we go way back with to the year 1973 when I worked for and along side Camille at his shop on Mason Street. He taught me every thing I knew for 10 years. David became our friend and Mary the sweetest woman I ever had the chance to be friends with. Our lives took us in seperate directions, but they always remained in our hearts. God bless your family and may his love shine down on you.    John and Valerie Lhuillier

Dave, Suzanne, Claire, Gina, Rinda and Richard --

We are so grateful we are lucky enough to have enjoyed lovely visits w/ your delightful Dad and Grandpa so many times at the lake, and of course, last year at Suzanne's & Richard's wedding. He had a vibe that was just so warm and genuine, always with a little sense of amusement at the world (it seemed to me). I believe we met our first summer there in 2006, and I was recalling to Don that one of the first things your Dad said to me was, "I would just love to cut your hair!" That tickled me so, I can't tell you -- and I felt complimented to boot, even though I knew he was saying he could make it look better!

I will always remember the great interest he took in other people, his love for his granddaughters and pride in his son, and his unwavering devotion to Mary. I don't pretend I knew him well, but enough to see his intelligence, simplicity, and deep humanity -- qualities that live on in all of you.

The world thanks you, Camille.

Love, Linda & Don

Mary & family,

We are sorry to read of your loss.



Mary and family, please accept my condolence for the loss of your dearly loved Camille. Close friends and the community will come forth to give moral support. God has always been near for you. He will comfort you and ease your pain. He will give you hope for the future. Jeremiah 29:11
