Not sure what to say?

Sure do miss you buddy!!

I would like to express my condolences to Barry's family and to all who knew him. It was only a few days ago that I learned of his passing. I attended St. Patrick school and BEHS with Barry, but I had only perhaps seen him once or twice during the ensuing years. Anecdotally, when Barry and I were in our early grade-school years, we would often race each other in our arithmetic tests to see who would finish first. I usually won the speed part, but also came in last when it came to...

To the entire Campbell family, I am so sorry to hear about Barry's passing. It was a shock to hear about this. We are sorry that we could there to give our condolences but want you all too know what a nice and funny guy I thought he was. May he rest in peace and may all of you find peace in your hearts and keep your wonderful memories close. Much love to all of you, Linda Ridgeway Rumph
