When he was young Cam attended the prestigious Friends School of Miami and Gulliver Academy in Coral Gables, Florida. Later after graduation from the very forward thinking Telluride High School, he attended Fort Lewis College in Durango, Mountain College in Steamboat Springs and Mesa State College in Grand Junction. Cam will be interred in Jacksonville Beach, Florida with a sky ceremony in Telluride, Colorado. Details will be announced.
The nostalgia of our memories with him is constantly in our hearts and minds. His spirit lives on in all of us. Now that he has gone to the land of mists and fog, ride the winds, waves and snow, you are in the devine, our dearest Cam. You are the ultimate dad.
We give thanks for his creation and the lessons he taught us. He will be a star nebula!
go love -
manifest new creation.
we are all tied to the heavens,
go now -
our transitory hero of creation,
death and rebirth
up the stairway to heaven
sharing words of wonder and gratitude that we are here at all, unites us!
As it was in beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world without end, AMEN
Take a deep breath and try to accept the fact that he is gone from us. Remember that smile and speeding by on the slopes. I guess we were lucky to have had him here this long!
a lost hope
then Cam happened
the great enigma
I am a shadow
you are a vessel
hold that until the next time
we take the light of your soul
and put it into a tiny vessel and let it go
a lost hope
your passion for life
our hearts are broken
