To The Campbell Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. What wonderful friends they always were to my parents back in the Havre days. Your mom and Dad were wonderful people and I know your mom will be dearly missed as is your sweet father. May The Lord bless and keep you as you deal with the loss of your beautiful mother. May he give you peace beyond comprehension.
