We wish to send deepest sympathy to the Campbell family. My daughter Lisa graduated at Mingus in 1977 also...and can't imagine losing her so young. She also lost her Dad 10 years ago. If you would accept this, we would love to come by, or can send a wonderful encouraging brochure, titled "When Someone You Love Dies". It is very comforting and answers a lot of questions from the Bible about death....and helps with the grieving process. Please send your address to katray44@live.com Again we are so sorry for your loss.

Very sorry to hear of Mike's passing. When I think of my high school years and the fond memories they bring I think of Mike as always being there somewhere. We were close friends as well as teammates, co-workers and roommates at one time. He always had a smile on his face and had a great sense of humor. He was a great person and even though I hadn't seen him in a while I will miss him. My thoughts are with Teri and Rose and his children. He will be missed by many. Rest in peace Mike.

I have fond memories of Mike from High School and when I lived in California. He brightened any room he walked into. We lost a very special friend much too soon. My thoughts are with your family at this difficult time.

Very sad to hear of Mike's passing, my condolences to his wonderful family. Many years a friend and teammate, Mike was always a class act. He will be missed by many and never forgotten.
Rest in peace Mike, you were always an All Star.
