He was a wonderful "Poppy" to eleven grandchildren - Raymond Keller, Charles Allen, Rosie, Velva Ann, Flossie, Peggie, Earl, Mary and Terry Campbell and Verba and Ginny Cave.
Throughout my life, because my dad had died so young, I was close to my Poppy Campbell. I loved this man with all that was in me. Randy Travis sings a song about an old grandpa that wore an old hat that looked like a halo and "I thought he walked on water." I can certainly relate to the song.
The poem I wrote about my Poppy was called "The Finest Man I Ever Knew" ... and he was.
