  1. Dear Lynn and all the Campbell clan, So sorry for your tragic loss. I hadn’t seen Paul in quite a few years, but being one of the .younger. siblings I have nice memories of him when the Campbell and Campane families got together. I still live in the house on Atwater st. That he sided for us many years ago! Wish I could have been able to see you all in person, but know that you are all in my thoughts and praying that God will comfort you as only He can.

  2. Dear Lynn, Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. We wish we could be there for you, but it is not feasible at this time. You will always have memories of the special man Paul was and we will always have memories of the many times we spent with you and your family.

  3. Dear Lynn, You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I will miss Paul and his kind thoughtful ways. I will miss his hugs and seeing the importance he placed on his family. My heart is truly saddened by his passing and my condolences extend to Greg and your entire family. I must say that I am thinking of Paul in heaven, joining family members and also reunited with Angus.

  4. Dennis and all the Campbell’s, So sorry to hear of your loss. We are thinking about you and your family during this difficult time. Regards David & Vicki Hudson

  5. Lynn and family- I only knew Paul for a short time but it was evident from the beginning that here was a kind and thoughtful person. Cosby always knew Paul by his voice. He would very quietly say to her, .how are you baby. and she immediately knew she was home. I will miss Paul and miss teasing him about the Red Sox. My thoughts and prayers are with you Lynn.

  6. Marilyn and kids – we are sorry to learn of Paul’s passing. He was truly a wonderful person. I have great memories of time he and I spent together when the Campbell clan lived on Atwater St. in West Haven, where I also lived. I remember one day when we went to his sister Judy’s house. We found some old rowboat and spent the day exploring a pond near the house. The adults had to come and get us when we had not returned after it became dark. He was fun to be with and will be missed. His .cuz. Larry Campane and Diane Campane

  7. Pete, Gregg and family… we are so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are in our thoughts at this sad time. Your dad will be in your hearts always… with you when ever you need him.
