Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Praise the Lord that he was a man of God and we know that he is running down the golden highway in Heaven. The angelic choirs have a wonderful addition to their Hallelujah chorus. May God bless you and your family and bring you peace and comfort.

To the Campbell Family: I am so sorry to hear of Jim's death. All of the family will be in my prayers. He was a wonderful person and the most Christian man I have ever known. He was blessed with great character and true loving heart that put God and his family as his main reason for living. We worked together many times in printing and no matter the circumstances, he was always fair and just in all his ways. I always understood that God only plucks those out of this world that he can no longer love at a distance; in one split second, he chose your father. We will meet again someday over the rainbow!

We were privileged to meet Mr Campbell aka Papa Campbell in 2003 when we visit College Park Baptist Church in Summerville SC. Where he was the head deacon. He and Momma Ida took us in like we belonged to them. He was such a wonderful kind man, I know his children and family will miss him greatly but now he’s resting peacefully with his beloved by his side. You will always be remembered for your love of God and your friends! I’m proud to be called one of them!!
