Name:Mr. Michael Campbell
West Kilbride
South Uist
Date of funeral:03/07/2009
Funeral Location:Our Lady Of Sorrows RC Church, Garrynamonie
Presider:Fr. Roddy McAuley
Additional Info:At the Requiem Mass, Fr. McAuley said these words about Mr. Campbell in his homily: “Michael had a real sense of the presence of God in joy and in sorrow. He was one of our community’s great characters and had a great wit. He always made people laugh, and they left the better being in his presence.
We need to be reminded at times that there are more precious things in life than material goods, power or influence.
Michael’s family was very close to him and there was a great bond there. That bond will always be there, because we know that love is stronger than the grave. Resurrection lies at the heart of our faith...the grave does not have the final say. Michael’s faith was the anchor of his life. Faith invests not only our work but the whole of our lives with meaning, with eternal value.
One of Michael’s stories deserves to be told today. When Michael was working for Cal-Mac in Oban on board the ferry, he was putting the cars in their respective lanes, as was his job....the Uist cars on one side, and the Barra cars on the other. One of the drivers rolled down the window and said, ‘Excuse me sir, which side of the boat goes to Barra?’ Michael looked at him with a wee smile and said, ‘a meudail (in Gaelic - 'my dear), both sides of the boat go to Barra!’"
May he rest in peace.
