My husband joined the Clan Campbell Society of North America under this gentleman. Lou had been the WA State Commissioner for the Society when Robert joined. Rob soon became a deputy commissioner and since 2008 he has been the state commissioner, Lou had moved up to the Vice President of the Society. Despite Lou's progressive decline my husband and I still would contact him and discuss things regarding the clan and the upcoming Scottish Highland Games. Despite the fact that he has not made it to any of the games the last few years, we along with many other people from a plethora of Scottish clans always look for him. Many of the others asking Robert or myself about how Lou and his wife are doing.
It has been with deep sadness that I have taken on the task to act as a liaison for the family with all the various Scottish clans. I love my fellow clansmen/women but they can all be a bit overwhelming at times despite the best of intentions. And as the family member in charge of getting everything arranged for her father's memorial, the last thing the poor girl needed was to deal with a large group of people that she was never involved with.
Lou, sweetie, I know that you are in a far better place now as you are no longer in pain. I promise you will be proud of the number of kilts that will be showing at you memorial. As the motto for Clan Campbell goes Ne Obliviscaris. You will never be forgotten.
