Farewell To Cam

Posted by camsplace on October 30, 2010 at 9:35 AM

Camerons Funeral took place on the 29th Oct 2010, It was a Very sad but equally fantastic service filled with love and memories of a fantastic little man. We would like to share a few of the readings from the service.

 

Firstly The Rev Canon Christine Froude read a lovely poem.

 

God looked around his garden

And found an empty place,

He then looked down upon the earth

And saw your tired face.

He put his arms around you

And lifted you to rest.

God's garden must be beautiful

He always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering

He knew you were in pain.

He knew that you would never

Get well on earth again.

He saw the road was getting rough

And the hills were hard to climb.

So he closed your weary eyelids

And whispered, 'Peace be Thine'.

It broke our hearts to lose you

But you didn't go alone,

For part of us went with you

The day God called you home.

Then Granma Terrie  read a very heartfelt Poem.

They say there is no reason

They say that time will heal

But neither time nor reason

Will change the way we feel.

For no-one knows the heartache

That lies behind our smiles

No-one knows how many times

We have broken down and cried.

We want to tell you something

So there won't be any doubt

Your so wonderful to think of

but, So hard to live without.

We cannot bring the old days back

When we were all together

The family chain is broken now

but, Memories last forever.

Then Angie, One of Cams nurses from Charlton farm told everyone of her memories of Cameron before we sang one of Cams favourite songs "Who put the colours in the rainbow".

The song "So Amazing" by Janelle was then played while we all remembered Cameron in Silent contemplation.

Finally after a final reading and the lords prayer Roses were placed for Cam while his favourite song "I wanna be a billionairre" was played as people made there way to the remembrance garden.

Balloons were released with messages to Cameron which flew like the wind up to him in the afternoon.

 

Cameron Was a Special Loving and giving Boy who never let his illness hold him back, He will be missed dearly by all who ever met him. But his name will live on in the memories of his family, friends and the  countless children he will inspire and support through the fundraising page set up in his honour.
