Ed (father Campbellem) always made others feel like there wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for them. With his divination, selflessness and optimism he was not only someone you wanted to surround yourself with but aspire to resemble. Thank you for all the wonderful memories and always making me feel like one of your own. You will be missed and thought upon often.

I always enjoyed time on your boat . Especially the times where mayhem ensued and danger was abundant. I know your boys loved you very much and we will all miss you.

My husband and I had a boat next to Ed on Lake Grapevine and Lake Lewisville. We enjoyed visiting with Ed and getting to know him and his family. We will miss his laughter and his stories. God Bless the family during this time. Laurie and Rick Hasty.

Ed you were a positive father figure to me. I loved your smile and spending time at your place. When the boys were around too, it felt like we were a family and that is something I will forever treasure. P.S. gravel rock driveways will also always hold a special spot in my heart. Love you!
