Jeff and Cammie enjoyed traveling together throughout their marriage including annual trips to Canada with family and friends. Cammie enjoyed cheering on the Royals when they made their World Series runs and cheering on the Chiefs the past several years. She also had a special love for her Yorkshire terriers.
