Craig, I'm sorry for your loss. I found out a few years that we are related. My great grandfather was William Franklin Campbell. I'm truly sorry that I couldn't have gotten to know more of the Campbell family. I have met Cousin Patti Campbell Williams and spoken to Rob Dwyer via email. He seems to have been an amazing man. Prayers to you and your family.

Uncle Sid's family, I am one of Betty Campbell Morton daughters. I remember Sid and mama were very close. I remember mama telling many stories of her and Sid growing up. So sorry for your loss and when I heard that Sid had died the first thing that came to my thought was that mama was waiting for him in heaven so they could pal around again. Sid was a very good brother to our mother and I know she loved him very much. We will be praying for your family now and the times ahead, we know how you are feeling and what you are going thru. God bless

Craig so very sorry for the loss of your dear father. His older brother Don was my Dad. Rest In Peace Uncle Sid. I remember meeting you many years ago when I was a little girl, when we would visit Johnson City from Virginia every summer.

Craig,
Please accept my condolences at this
time of the passing of your father, Sid Campbell. While I only met him on a few occasions, he was always genial and kind. He was always interested in what I had to say to him and showed me respect, both for which I am thankful. His service to the community is appreciated. Know that I, as you friend, am grieving with you as you experience the loss of your father. You can remember this week as the time when the yellow irises were blooming. I have enclosed a photo of a mound of irises near Montrose Court. Sincerely, Helen Mills
