Houston Highlanders Bagpiper Al Campbell (1931- 2006)

From: Date: Sun, 5 Mar 2006 10:27:21 EST Subject: Al Campbell It is with great sadness that we inform our membership that our friend and piper, Al Campbell, passed away last evening. Over the years, we could always count on Al to support H&T with all our piping requests. He gave generously of his time, and was a very special contributor to our Society. In addition to his dignified performances, Al had great humor which he occasionally added for fun and laughter. We shall miss him. Our special condolences to his wife, Betsy, his family and close friends. We will send another e-mail when the details of his services have been finalized. God Bless his Soul.
