  1. So sorry to hear about Pat!! My dad, Dr. Campbell, loved Pat and respected her as a wonderful nurse in his office. I got to work with Pat in my dad’s office. She was a lovely lady.

  2. Pat was so deeply loved by the entire Campbell family and I cherish her devoted and caring work along side my dad, George W. Campbell. She was a beautiful lady inside and out and I always loved her ever-present smile! I’m so grateful to have worked with her in my dad’s office. My heartfelt love and condolences to her family and friends.
