I loved Archie Copeland! He was wonderful friend to me during my undergraduate days at Carolina. I loved hanging with him at the Student Union Building. Archie did so much good on this earth during his time and definitely left this world a better place. He left example we all need to follow. I regret so much I didn’t make the trip to Chapel Hill to see Archie one more time. RIP my friend
