  13. Dear Campanella Family,
    Jamie and his great smile will always be remembered, he was a sweet boy and greatly loved and prayed for through the years. I knew Jamie through his dear Mom, Betty, we worked together many years. Wish I had known about the funeral sooner, I will say they’re in joy in Heaven today, as Mom & Dad welcome their son! Love to all the family and know that Jamie is well and at home with Our Lord.

  18. Jamie and liz were a surprise package on March 28 1964 but what a wondetful surprise. I was there for their Christining celebration and all through their young years. We had many wonderful exciting hair raising times with the Campanella 6 and the Hinton 3. Nine double cousins that were hard to tell which child belonged to which couple. But i would give anything to have that time once more. God blessed us protected us saved us. With all my love. Aunt Mary

  19. My sincere condolence to my lifelong friends in the Campanella family , especially his twin sister Elizabeth
    I learned of his death only recently and regret that very much as I did not attend the funeral for that reason and was not able to share my sympathy and love for all of you sooner
    His mother Betty, was a dear friend and coworker and Jamie was always very special to me
