Here is Cameron exactly a year ago today. My great friend "Auntie Mo-Minda" (Melinda)came for a visit and gave him a Mickey Mouse. He loved it. That smile says it all. The 2 month count down started yesterday...ugh. I was able to have lunch today with Rachel, little Collin's mom. Collin is one of Cameron's little friends from Doernbechers that is up in heaven with him too. It was nice to catch up and get some tips on how she & her family are handling this too. Dad, Cressey is working on some toy projects for the Pediatric ICU & other sick kiddos for Christmas, more to come on that Very exciting! I just checked with the PICU the other day and they are in need of "new" comfy sweatpants/t-shirt/ sweatshirts for the families fresh from the ambulance. Sometimes, when they get off of the ambulance they are covered in "something" and have nothing clean to change into until family can get there, to bring them their own clothes. That is a big way to help families during their toughest times. They need size 6 to adult. Just an idea if someone is looking for a way to help out this Christmas holiday season. Donating online to "Sparrow Clubs USA"(sparrowclubs.org) for kids in medical crisis listing under "Cameron Merrill's Legacy program" to help out with his Fight Big Bags is an option too. Also, "Candlelighters for kids with Cancer" (4kidswithcancer.org) also has a "Cameron Merrill Legacy Program" to do a version of the Fight Big Bags too. Both of these great charities have a tax-id number so the donations are tax deductible!! Thank you so much for all of your love, prayers & support. It is a tough road but I/we seriously couldn't have gotten this far without all of your love & positive juju. Thank you just doesn't seem to cover it. Big hugs to you!

I am missing him so much...I found this CD of pictures when I was doing some cleaning and had to show you how seriously cute he is. I miss him so much, it just doesn't seem real he is gone sometimes. I miss that smile and those hugs more than words can say. At least when I look at these pictures that it reminds me that he knew he was so loved & we did the best we could to make sure he had a good childhood. He has the exact personality you see in these pictures. Pure love.
