I did not know Harold well. But, what I did know was that he was a kind person. A very smart person. Harold had a melancholy demeanor which I think held sadness. I don't think we understood it and in our busyness of being teenagers did not really see Harold for who he was. I hope he had a happy life.

HELLO JEANNIE...I think it was at our 45 year reunion that I got an email from Harold Campbell saying he would not be able to join us as he was dying of AIDS.  I was on the reunion committee.  It was a very sad message, but he was grateful for his time at Valley and wished he could join us.  I see from our yearbook that you were on the Falcon staff, and you must have known Harold better than I did, since I think he was one of the photographers.  Thanks for remembering him and I hope all is well for you and your family.  Regards, Bob Bunyan

Hi Bob, 

Not sure you got my last comment. Thank you for answering. Since then Dorothy Dobson sent me an e-mail with an obituary which Chris posted on memories. It sounded as though Harold came into his own and had a good life. I was happy to hear that and I am going to read Harold's book. 

hope you are well, Jeannie Powell Wright
