Our fondest memories of Mr. Campbell were his dedication to leading the Family Rosary held each Thursday and his attendance at the Miraculous Medal Novena held on Monday evenings. Both were held at St. Andrew Church. I also remember many years ago seeing Mr. and Mrs. Campbell and the whole family at Sunday Mass at St. Andrew's and observing all the children sitting in a row beside each other. The Campbell family set a beautiful example of their love and dedication to the Catholic faith and their love of the Sacraments. Our deepest condolences and prayers to Mrs. Campbell and her "beautiful" family.
