    To the Campbell’s;
    I first met your Mom & Dad some 55 years ago. They both were such wonderful people.
    My Dad(Moe)always said that your parents had such a good affect of showing him that family is so important.
    But, when my brothers and sisters were younger, Dad would always yell up the stairs “…get up you young puppers…”.
    May God bless your Mom’s soul, and fill all your hearts with your Mon’s memories.
