Calvin (Vin) Argyll Campbell

(5/14/20) Vin Campbell, SVHS'65 passed away on Wednesday, April 15, 2020, of Covid-19 at UAB in Birmingham. We send our condolences to his daughter Catherine and other family members. Read the brief online obituary and the guest book here -

The following is a post made by his daughter Catherine the night before on April 14th:

How do you spend the last night with your dad during the pandemic when you can't be together physically?
With the help of generous friends with connections (Cam Ho) you send special things to his room, like Holy water from Lourdes (Lupita Bilbao), a candle, and love letters from my family.
You keep vigil in the night with a matching LED votive candle in his room and in mine, to bring light into the darkness. You have a nurse play his special music playlist of songs for all night long and listen to it side by side with him in the night. This is the closest I can get to being in the same space with him, where we can listen to the same songs at the same time.
You also offer special prayers to prepare him for today. Prayers that fortify, comfort and bring us peace. Prayers to hold my family, my siblings, Susan, and all those that love Calvin. Prayers of gratitude for all the blessings we have received, for the medical care team, and kind words, messages, love and light sent by friends, family and even strangers near and far.
And you cry. A lot. (more...)
