|Let the memory of Gloria be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Gloria Campbell, 69, born on January 13, 1943 and passed away on February 8, 2012. We will remember her forever.
Gloria was diagnosed with a blood cancer called Multiple Myeloma February 2011. Chemotherapy was a success which allowed her to participate in the stem cell transplant September 2011. Unfortunately shortly after that she relapsed and the cancer was more aggressive causing her kidneys to fail and needing weekly blood & platelet transfusions. Complications to having very low platelets caused her to lose her battle on February 8th, 2012.
Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual fundraising walk to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Hundreds of thousands of participants raise funds for lifesaving research and patient services.
Gloria was only able to attend one Light the Night in 2011 as she watched on the sideline when we began our 2.5 mile walk and as we ended at the finish line shouting & cheering her name. Last year we walked in her memory knowing she was with us in spirit! Our team is committed to walk every year and raise money in memory of Glo and others that continue to battle this horrible disease!
SAY IT, FIGHT IT, CURE IT!

"Wow, 3 years? Hard to believe it has been that long. Seems like yesterday that I was driving you to Walmart and Sam's club. Ni and I came to put a balloon on your gravesite for your birthday, and Ni said she wanted to see you. I told her one day she will. I know you are happy to know that Ni and I are going to the Bahamas next month to see the family. They got to meet her last year. Everyday, know that you are forever missed."
"The day you went away:
Today it's the anniversary of the day you went away,
And I will be standing at your gravesite
And believe me when I say.
You never be forgotten
And every year I shed a tear
But it's only because I miss you,
And wish you were still here.
I miss you Glo........."
"Happy Birthday Mommy, miss you sooooo much!!"
"Happy Birthday!!!!!! We miss you, so much GLO."
"Happy Birthday! It is still surreal that you are not here. I think about you every day. I know you know the struggle we are having with Gabe. We are trying our best! Again, happy 72nd birthday from Ni and I."
"Hi Gloria, May God Bless You and Your Family. It's refreshing to see your family's involvement with LLs. Through the honorable things they do, along with many thousands of other folks, one day a life will be saved. Touching others, one person at a time. Rest well."
"LLS had their Light the Night Kickoff last night. Sabrina and I were there representing the team. We are continuing the support of LLS and hope a cure is found...soon. We miss you!"
"Can't believe it's been two years already. Seems like yesterday when I last saw you in the hospital just before you received your wings. I know you are still watching over Grandma and Granddaddy as you did when they were sick. Your girls are really carrying on your traditions...Missed you at the cookout again.
Peace and Love"
"Hey mommy, I can't believe it's been 2 years but the memories I will always treasure.... We all miss you so much!!"
"We all miss you Glo, each and everyday. Thanks for watching over us and Gab talks about u all the time. Love ya!!!!!"
"Hi Gloria, keep the light on for us, will you. One day there will be a few of us coming your way. I know, everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to go now. That's true, but when the time comes I hope to meet you. There is a bunch of people up there that I'm looking forward to seeing. Keep an eye on us all."
"It is still unbelievable that you are no longer with us and even more unbelievable that it has been 2 years since we all got to see you. As always, we think about you everyday. There is always a lil something I see in the stores or something I do from time to time that makes me chuckle and say...that's Glo. :) We are heading to AC today. If I see that fish slot machine you liked to play, I will most definitely put a $1 in it just for you! Ni and I miss u!"
"Happy Birthday mommy!!!!! Missing you always!!"
"Happy Birthday Ma. We all miss you."
"Happy 71st Birthday Glo!!!!!
Gab is wishing you a Happy Birthday, we miss you so much."
"Happy 71st birthday Mommy! We think about you everyday. I show Ni your pics and she knows who you are. We miss you."
"Happy Birthday Gloria!! Gone too soon has a real meaning now. Over the past two years the Leukemia and Lymphoma society have made great strides, towards helping people like you and my wife. If you and Annie could have hung on a couple more years, things may have been different. In the near future multiple myeloma may become a chronic illness, and not so fatal. That will be a joyous day for me as I, as do your family, know and understand just how difficult this cancer can be. Hope your having a glorious day with the Angels in Heaven. Hugs!!"
"Missing you this Thanksgiving"
Missed your corn salad at the Family Day cookout. Also missed seeing you with your camera. Hopefully, someone will find your recipe and make it for the next outing. I know you are at peace. I'm still planning that yard sale you told me to have.
With much love."
"hey mommy, all is well on this end, still thinking about you and missing you everyday!!"
"HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MOMMY!!!"
"Happy Mother's Day, we all miss you."
"Hey mommy, I MISS YOU :("
"WOW GRANDMA I CANT BELIEVE ITS BEEN A WHOLE YEAR. IT STILL SEEM SO UNREAL KNOWING UR NOT HERE. CAMRYN HAS GOT SO BIG N NOW TRYING WALK I WISH U WAS HERE TO SEE AL THIS. WE ARE DOIMG GOOD N WE MISS U SO MUCH. I LOVE YOU GRANDMA. N CAN'T WAIT TO SEE U AGAIN.
LOVE TRI AND CAM"
"Heyyyy mommy, can't believe its been a year, we have struggled through all the firsts without you, mothers day, family day, holidays, & birthdays, now another year to do it all over again:("
"Miss you Gloria, we all do. Keep partying and listening to the oldies with grandma. Love you!"
"I thought of you today, but that is nothing new, I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name, Now all I have is memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is my keepsake, with which I'll never part, God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart."
"Hard to believe it has been one year. Time flew! We all are doing well and you are missed every day!"
"Glo the family is all doing well and Mert wanted me to tell you they miss you dearly."
"Hi Gloria, sorry I missed your birthday. But, better late than never. Happy Belated Birthday. I see your family is heavily involved in LLs. That's one of my passions. Through you and people like my wife Annie, just maybe one day a cure will be found. I sure hope, that's one cancer that needs a cure. Sadly it's so rare and touches the elderly it doesn't get much funding. God bless you"
"Happy 70th Birthday mommy!!"
"Hi Gloria, hope your having fun up there in heaven counting your blessings. I still find it hard to believe your the only person I've met that had the same disease as my Annie, and passed the same way. I'm still looking for answers, but it'll probably have to wait until I see you and Annie. I'm sure you know, and I'm looking forward to that big day. I wish your family the best. Bob"
"Thanksgiving went well & the food came out great, i still missed you tho!"
"Thanksgiving is coming up next week and i already miss calling you to find out what you will be cooking & bringing, although last year you were in the hospital I was still able to call you and you reminded me how to cook those greens, can you believe i haven't made my list or bought the turkey yet!! But don't worry, I'll get to the store & we will be fine.....still missing you like crazy.."
"Mommy, I'm hear laughing at Cathy's comment about your husband not wanting to turn on the stove....crazy how that is so true. If it can't warm up in the microwave then he don't want it....no stove or oven using in the house. Chrissy is buying the stuff and she is doing her best with the selections....I know he misses your home cooked Sunday dinners. I know I do!"
"heyyyy mommy, im still missing you! Gab is fine, i take him food every now and then & for some reason he still refuses to cut the stove on so the mircowave is his best friend for meals! LOL"
"Missing u Mommy..."
"May we continue to live our lives, with the utmost of integrity, honoring, respecting and cherishing others, as we continue to find ways to bring honor to our Mother, who gave us life and was responsible for our very existence. Thank you for our precious lady in red."
"Auntie, it is so hard facing your absence. These tears in my eyes are because I love and miss you sooo much!"
"I will always remember her sweet smile and beautiful nature. May God keep you in his embrace as you are reminded of Mrs. Glo! She will never be forgotten."
"Hi Gloria, hopefully by now you have met my wife Annie. She would have loved you and you her. Your the first person that I've been introduced to that passed from low platelets. Annie passed the same way. Your daughter Cathy left a beautiful tribute on Annie's memorial. I can tell you this, from a stranger, you were really loved and are greatly missed from the heart. Gone too soon!"
"To Gab, Cathy, Cindy, Crissy and granddaughters,
I thank God for the time He let us share in Gloria's life. She is missed, especially at the family annual day. I will always remember the kindness she showed during Grandma and Granddaddy's illnesses. Her legacy will no doubt carry on through her 'girls'. It's a blessing to see the movement you all have embarked upon in her memory."
""If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again"."
Have a suggestion for us?
