James Cameron "Jamie" PAUL THE GREATEST GUY IN THE WORLD January 14, 1946 ~ April 26, 2012 Jamie was such "good company". HE MADE EVERYONE SPARKLE IN HIS PRESENCE. Jamie passed away in the arms of every family member close enough to reach the UW hospital in time. In his usual understated and gentlemanly way, Jamie demonstrated his lifelong, powerful determination to win his final race to live. He entered transplant surgery expecting a perfect result and ready for the worst. Jamie was the most mentally strong, gentle, caring, loving, unselfish person any of us has ever known. Jamie was the best husband, brother, son, grandson, brother in law, uncle, cousin, Godfather and friend that any human being could ever have, or hope to have.
