Sawyer Elizabeth Camillo, 18 of Argyle TX, student at University of Louisiana, Lafayette, passed away December 22, 2012 at Presbyterian Hospital in Denton. She was born in Lewisville to Donald A. and Lori Naughton Camillo. Sawyer was a loving, loyal, compassionate friend to everyone she met. She possessed a bright light within her that she shared with a flash of her smile. A talented athlete and avid sports fan. She felt her sports injuries were God's way of guiding her in to a study of Physical Therapy where her experiences might be used to help others. She is present with our Lord and for that we are grateful, but this has left a huge hole in our hearts here.
