Cameron was just 1 1/2 months shy of 22 when he passed away. We live in California and he had gone to Denver to pick up his car the last time I saw him. I gave him a hug good-bye on Wednesday night and the next time I saw him was a week later when he was returned home to me. The weeks and months following have been a blur.

Cameron was my baby, I had him when I was 34 and I was devoted to him. He was a happy, popular guy that everyone loved. Cam loved to make people laugh and smile and there were no strangers to him. He was an extreme snow boarder, BMX bike rider, and skater.

The pain of losing him has been unbearable and no one who hasn't been thru this can possibly understand, that's why this site is so important to me. I can read the feelings of others and know that this is what I'm also experiencing. It's very sad to see new members of this group everyday. We have lost so many children in this age group.

Hi Laura, Thank you, I love having the plaque back there, it gives me a place to sit and reflect. I've been actually doing pretty good except for today. I got a call this morning from Subway, they were looking for Cameron to hire him for the manager position he had applied for. I had to tell them that he had passed away. I broke down emotionally today after having been doing good for a whole week. I went to the cemetery and spent some time there. I hope that you are doing well, I watched some of Adam's videos, and what an amazing young man he was. You must have been so proud of him, he was so talented! Thank you for writing me. I'm still trying to get to Compassionate Friends, my husband was out of town at the last meeting. Take care.
