Today I cried upon learning of Kameron passing .I knew him as a Substitute Nurse and last few years as a substitute teacher.Kameron was a joy to work with and I truly loved him.The twinkle in his eyes and shouting my name when he saw me as his sub was the best gift that he gave me.I really thought when school ended this past May,I would see him again in the Fall.To the family,I am honored to have known him.He will be missed.Donna McDowell

Then I heard a voice from heaven say, "Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on." "Yes," says the Spirit, "they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them." Revelation 14:14
