        This is so childish what are u 12? This is a tragedy for the families no matter the circumstance. You should offer condolences or be quiet. There is no excuse for such an idiot attitude in a tragic time for the families. Everyone ( and I mean everyone who drives has sped at one time )

    Very sad, no matter the curcumstances. Everyone is guilty of speeding at one time or another. Anyone who says they have never drove over the speed limit is not truthful. Speed is not good, Maybe this can be a learning experience to some.

    Robbie was a childhood friend, we all played backyard and street football in those days, had a blast. Seen him a few years ago and he was friendly as ever. Wife told me of the accident this morning. My heart goes out to all the Campbells.

    I have never commented on here but after reading “Ravens” remarks, I felt the need to do so. I feel that everyone is entitled to their thoughts and opinions but in some cases it’s best and most human like to keep them to yourselves! Families suffer enough during a loss without Heartless and cruel comments, totally uncalled for!! Unfortunately everyone isn’t perfect like “Raven”! Hopefully this person never looses a loved one in a tragic accident. I knew Robbie in school, he was a great guy, always a smile and fun to be around. My thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones, truly sorry for your loss.

    My prayers continue to go out for the Campbell family. I did not know Robbie but I know his brother Bobby. Stay strong! Don’t quit! You can do it! Keep the faith! Keep hope alive! Keep pressing forward!
