Miami, FL
Chris was a caring & wonderful person. He was always a perfect gentlemen with me. I was so sad, about what had happened. It just show how life is so precious. Because Chris & I are the same age. So it’s no gaurentee that you’ll wake up the next morning. So don’t take what you have for granted. I know that Chris will always have a place in my heart. He was of the nice football players. I just had hope he was able to mend things with his mother, before the tragedy. May God bless his love one & have him in a safe place.

I WILL SINCERELY MISS CHRIS ON THE FIELD I THOUGH I DON’T KNOW HIM OFF THE FIELD I STILL FEEL LIKE I HAVE A LOSS!

MY THOUGHTS & PRAYERS GO OUT TO ALL THE CANES & CHRIS’S FAMILY!

I feel sorry for what happened to Chris Cambell.From what I hear he was a good man and was trying to become a living legend in which he was. Times are hard you know but that’s how life is. I know that thing will all make sense when we journey on.” I know we’ll understand it all when death is coming taking all of our loved ones it leaves our home so lonely and dreer, that’s when we wonder how others prosper from living so wicked year after year when Chris was a good fella and had to leave early.Cheer up everyone and live in the sunshine we will understand. I played ball with Tombi’s brother Raja so I know the Bell family and I know that his sister would not have settled for anyone less than a great man.Chris he (Jesus)promised us that he will be by us day and night if we only believed in him and you did, your troubles are done let us know how it is up there. Don’t worry about us in due time we will mend but to all its ok to cry go ahead and cry because even Jesus wept hopin fai!th be kept its a new day.We who are pure with God somehow might see that there’s still some light in the world.

I am sorry that this happened to you. It was unfortunate to see you getting killed at such a young age. I think that you played football very well.

Jacob Preston Houston, Texas
First I want everyone to know that I am Chris’s oldest blood brother Jacob Preston (25), and he has two more blood brothers, Eric Preston (24) and FredrickCampbell (18) and a sister, Alicia Campbell (17). I didn’t want to have to say this but I only feel it’s right to set the record straight as far as Willie Searcy and the Mim’s family is concerned, they are NOT his blood, although they may be considered his family. Myself and Eric and Chirs grew up togehter and for Searcy to say the things he says is not from knowing Chris all of his life, maybe 5-6 years. Anyways, this is just what I wanted the people to know, some of the facts. I thank Willie Searcy for helping Chris in a time of need, but we need to keep it honest. I love my brother Chris, and I want everyone to know that I am extremely proud of all of his accomplishments, and for the strength he had to overcome life’s challenges. I will miss him, but he will always be in my heart.

It has been 1 month since our beloved Chris made his transition to a better place and I still think about him constantly. There is not an hour that goes by that I don’t mention his name or laugh about something silly that he would have said.(hey, miss, can I have some of your ornje juice?) He spent a great deal of time with my family at our home. He and I developed a close,personal bond. He shared many personal things with me. Some of them good, some not so good. Despite adversity, he did what he HAD to do to become the man he was. CJC was a wonderful,caring young man. I loved him and will always love him like a son. He will never be forgotten. I love and miss you Chris Campbell. Thanks!!!

Lisa Hackensack, NJ
I have never met Chris but I am a huge Hurricane fan. It was a pleasure watching him on the field. For that I thank you. My thoughts and prayers go out to all who are feeling the pain and hurt of the loss of such a wonderful human being. Chris may not be here physically, but remember, in spirit, he is always with you. He looks down on all those he loved and sees you everyday, and guides you in his own ways. God Bless all of you who knew him and were close to him. He is with the Lord above waiting for the day he can see all of you again. Make him happy by living your life to the fullest. You know down inside that’s what he would want you to do. All my love to all his family and friends, you will be dearly missed.

To the Campbell’s family and to the Miami Hurricanes family:

The news of your sorrow has just reached me.

It will be very hard for all of us who knew him well to carry on without him, but we can be glad it was our privilage to have come in contact as long as we did with such a very lovely person. I shall always remember his kindness and cleverness.

When an athlete dies young, its always a terrible thing! You are left wondering why did this have to happen to someone like this? When the lord calls for you, its time to go! Rest in peace Chris!

Danny Cumana (Miami, FL)
I never had the pleasure of meeting Chris, but have learned allot about him through all the reports after his tragic death. I have learned that he was a great man and was soon to be wed. I send out out my prayers to his family and assure them that God loves them and wants to comfort them in this time of pain. May they use this opportunity to see Him and enjoy His love and security. God bless you all.

Tombi Bell Campbell
As I read these encouraging words to Chris and his family I am deeply moved. I want to Thank everyone who has taken time out of their day to pray for the family of Chris. Even though he is physically gone, he will always be with us no matter what. The only thing that keeps me going is knowing that one day I will see him again. Please know that Chris is in a better place. It is a shame that he had to leave so soon, but he has accomplished everything he was sent here to do. Again, Thank you all for your love, support, and prayers!! God Bless!

We have learned so much from Chris…but please let his homegoing teach us all to be real with ourselves and others, and to live each day like it is our last…because none of us are promised tomorrow. I Love you Chris!! Tombi

I have been a Miami fan since 5th grade, I am now 32 years old and have not been this shocked since the passing of Jerome Brown. My heart felt condolences to the Campbell family and the Hurricane family. He will be sorely missed but always remembered. That is what is different about the Miami program from any other program it is one big family.
