I remember so fondly the times as a child my brothers and sisters and I visited Aunt Maudie and family at the Campbell residence. We so enjoyed being around them and watching our cousins, Kirby and Dennis, blush as we teased them. I mean to say, they were always smiling and they had five little rough and tough girls and two wild boys to play with. I’m sure it was overwhelming when we all got together, but there was nothing but smiles during all those visits. We treasured them. Later in life and as our families grew we didn’t get together nearly as often but I still remember my numerous stops at the clock shop to hug Kirby and his sweet wife, Annetta. He will be missed and I will think of him fondly as I travel through Corbin.
