    Sue and family, Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and the entire Campbell family during this time. I will always remember our Our Lady of Lourdes School Days and seeing your Dad and Mom sitting in the front porch on Broad Ave when mom and dad took us out to church. We lost mom 5 years ago when she was 92 and she said to us don't shed any tears because I am going to a place where I can be with my three sons and my husband and I have waited a very long time. She told us to be happy for her and celebrate. I am sure your father is celebrating also Sue with his daughter, his brothers and parents. Blessings upon all of you Mary Gaeto Dodson

    I was fortunate to have worked with Regis for many years while I was a member of the office staff at Prudential. His fun, outgoing personality was a bright spot at the office every morning. Please accept my sincere sympathy for your loss. May you find comfort in the wonderful memories of him. God bless all of you. Janet (Weyandt) Nearhood
