Not sure what to say?

Dear Iris and family:

I dont know how I missed this guest book page until now, but I did. After many years in Charlotte, I still recall all of the respect and admiration I had for the Governor (then Representative) when we all worked on that Lt. Gov.'s race in 1974. Though that one was not to be, the contributions that came from Congressman, later Governor, Campbell to the state of SC are so numerous and well-known they don't need repeating. I hope that we will all see another...

Oh my gosh. I've been away from SC so long that I didn't even know. I met Carroll at Spartanburg Country Club when I was president of IFSEA and he spoke to our group. I really respected him and am so sorry for your loss and this late posting.

I lived in the great state of South Carolina when Governor Campbell was in office. I still remember the first time I ever saw a governor up close. It was at the tree lighting ceremony. I was exceptionally impressed. Governor Campbell was a good governor. I hope that God is taking care of him now. All God's blessings to his family.

Dear family,Your Father came to mind today as I was pondering our current political landscape. From the time I was a young student at Bob Jones ,I always thought your Father had what it took and while I was glad he was Governor Always thought He might one day be President!! He was a Great man with common sense,integrity and backbone ! Things we don't see enough of today ! I was in school with Terry Haskins and Gloria and Dave Thomas as well. I am a County Commissioner myself serving in...

To Iris and family,
It has been many years, but you folks were my neighbors on Fairview Road. We are so sorry for your loss and would like to extend our sympathy on behalf of Mark, Sharla, Andrea, and Michelle plus Saundra Anderson. Even though I live in Florida, I remember all the fond memories of our friends Iris and Carroll Campbell. Carroll Campbell was one of the finest statesmen serving South Carolina. Would to God there were more in this day and age. Know that my prayers are with...

To my friend Elizabeth and all of the Campbell family. You all have my deepest sympathy. I lost my mother two years ago to this devastating disease. Carroll was a very kind man and will greatly missed by all of South Carolina.
Sincerely, Joan Matheny

To the Campbell family... My father , John Beatty, was a volunteer for your husband , father while he was Governor. He was known as "Mr. B" to all the staff. My father asked me to attend a gathering while Gov. Campbell was in office. I also met Iris. I found both to be so wonderful and understood why my Dad was so gun-ho on keeping a Republican in the State House. Gov. Campbell was a very intelligent man, and hope his son can carry on. What prompted me to write at this...
