    I, as many others here, only knew Cameron peripherally on-line. He "liked" a few of my posts, and I his. His interests in vintage scuba sparked a brief off-line discussion. His loss is profound.

    Dear Cameron,

    Float gently with the eb and flow of the current of time and space running steadily toward the far shore of eternity. Know that your brief time here in our small bywater of the cosmos left a lasting mark on the universe and those of us who shared your passions and were made better by your presence.

    The whole thing is hilarious. That's when you know you have a real buddy.

    You mean as opposed to posting a video of you in the act on YouTube? Agreed, that takes a prince of a guy with more self-restraint than I possess. :)

    Like many others, I only knew him from his posts on here and truly feel like I missed out by that being the only contact I ever had with him. Prayers to his family and friends who he obviously touched immensely!

    I sit here almost feeling a bit foolish for having tears in my eyes over the loss of someone I never got the privilege of meeting in person. And I too feel like I missed out on knowing one of the greats in this world. But I know that in some small way my life has been touched by Cameron through his posts here on SB, his wealth of knowledge, and his relentless willingness to help others in any way he could. To say that he was inspiring is an understatement. He was wise beyond his years.

    To his mother, close friends and family, I send my deepest condolences and can only hope that you find peace in your time of grief. I'm quite certain that wherever he may be Cameron is looking back and asking you not to despair or feel sorrow for him as he was doing exactly what he loved. And one day you will see him again. He isn't really gone.....just farther along in the journey than the rest of us. And waiting for us to catch up so he can show us all what we're missing.

    Cameron: Godspeed my friend. May your journey be peaceful and full of endless wonder. We'll see you again one day soon in the depths of eternity.
