Comment on Farewell, Iain Campbell by Jeanette Cook.

i arrived in Alice Springs in 1976 not long after Iain but I didn’t meet him until my Tech College days when I’d decided to learn more artistic skills. Iain was a kind and understanding guide and I progressed happily in newfound areas.
Over the years we became “drinking and dancing” partners, often being the life of any party.
I remember having a portrait displayed in the old restaurant along the road through the hills of White Gums.
Our then Lady Mayoress was present photographs were being taken for entry into the then paper. I had asked Iain to say a few words. Our friendship developed continued to this day.
I shall miss Iain Campbell-Darling. Vale my friend.
