Dorothy Campbell, affectionately called "Ma", was like Family to me. I have known her over, let's just says since I was 15 and became Friends, that Turned to Lifelong Best Friends With her Daughter, Doris Campbell-Simeona. I am reminded of how she brought my Attention to my Small legs, and ankles, it was a inside joke.. Ma was always nice to me. Ma complemented, and even chastised me, if necessary. Most of all I remember how Proper, she always spoke to me.. I can see her in her beautiful house dresses sitting on the side of the bed, with her Cool Short Afro. Ma, had it going on.. Once when I was unsettled, I returned to NEw York and Ma let me stay Upstair.. I worked at the Amoco Station. I want to say to her family; Bridgette Butler, Debbra Dickerson, Bobby, Doris Campbell-Simeona, Carolyn Campbell, La'Keisha J. Campbell, Dorkim, Kimesha Simeona, all of your Spouses Children and Grandchildren, I want you to know that we love you. This will hurt on some days. One thing you can be sure of, You have a plethora of people holding you up in prayer, trust me when I say.. That alone makes a huge difference. Also, know, that those of us that knew Ma, and loved her are grieving along with you. on behalf of Our family, Evangelist Louise McNair, my Mother, Bishop Henderson & Myself, Bishop Albrey & Twala Howard , Gwen Daye, & Frank.. All of us here in the State of North Carolina, We are praying With you and For you, during this Different & Difficult Time.

“When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.” My heart goes out to you all in your time of sorrow. I’m going to miss getting a good laugh listening to something wild/funny that Ms. Campbell either said or did. She was my girl whether she knew it or not. I know she’ll be missed by many. ❤️
