Cameron was certainly a handsome and caring young man.
Love your songs, Susan. Thank you for sharing your thoughts in your songs and "introducing" your precious son, Cameron to us.
Our only children were indeed special.

Cameron - you never knew me, but your Dad sent me some of your stuffed animals today. I'm going to find them new homes with kids who really need them. Maybe you can "tag along" and give a little help to the kids as well. Thank you.

Holding you close, Gallion's. Never forgetting Cameron. We had a butterfly release the other day. Cameron, my daughter, Anna, and so many other of our beloved children came to mind. Fly free, little ones, fly free.

Dear Cam,
Your Mom and Dad spent last weekend on our boat on Hilton Head Island. We spent one day out trying to sail but didn't have any wind. We spent the next day giving your parents a tour of Daufuskie Island. I hope they had as nice a weekend as Jeff and I did. I just wanted to let you know that they are doing as we'll as can be expected. I could feel you there with us at every moment. Your Mom breathes...and there you are. And when your Dad smiles, I know you are there as well. They carry your heart.
Just wanted to give you an update even though I know you already know these things. Oh, and Woody is doing really well too! What a cutie he is.
You are doing a good job, Cam, watching out over your Mom and Dad. They really need you and the love that you are now.

Dear Gallion's, I'm so sorry I didn't post on Cameron's 7th Homegoing anniversary. Lately, I've just felt like I'm being sucked in by a giant sink hole. Anna would have turned 24 yesterday. She left us at 12 so she's been gone as long as she was here. I know your endless if not visible pain and emptiness. Praise God we have a Comforter that knows all about it. May you continue to feel His love and encouragement.

Dearest Susan and Flip,
I did not know cameron, but we share the same last name... which leads me to feel a sense of loss. After reading the beautiful letter to him on the webpage, I can tell you are beautiful souls that are lead by the Lord... what an inspiration you are to those who have lost and don't know where to turn... you give them hope of a life after the death of a child... for that I thank you.

Cameron, i found a box full of stuff from you when we were kids. Love letters, pictures, drawings, stuff we made out of clay, all kinds of memories. I can't believe how young we were. Its been 7 years since i lost the best friend I could ever have, and not a day goes by when I don't think about the amazing memories we shared. I love you Cameron, and you are always in my heart forever.

Cameron, not a day goes by where I don't look up and take an extra moment to thank god that you were in my life. I believe that people are put on earth for certain reasons, and even though I wish you could have spent more time with us, you taught me so much and helped me appreciate the small things in life. I feel privileged to say I was your friend while you were here on earth, and I know I'm a better person because of you. You truly are an angel's son. I love you brother.

Thinking of you, Cameron, and your parents. It seems silly to write to "you" via an online guestbook -- if you were "online," I know you'd write to us! You'll never be forgotten. All my love, B.Ho

Thought about you all day yesterday and first thing this morning. Actually, I think so often about Anna and when I do I think about all the other grieving mothers I know and lift us all in prayer. We so need our Lord's comfort, peace and encouragement. I pray both you and Flip are held closely in His arms today as you celebrate Cameron's 21st in your heart.

I am an occasional worshipper at St. George Church. The "Alleluia Window" caught my attention on my first visit with the surfer image. Tonight I learned the meaning of the window. Thank you for sharing your love for Cameron with the world. I thank God for Cameron and the legacy of love for life he leaves us all.

Gosh, Cameron, you would have turned 20 today. I know you would have been an exceptional young man, but you could never have made your parents any prouder than they already were of you when you crossed over.

We will never forget you. xoxoxox B.Ho.

I have been searching for this site for years and I'm glad I finally found it. Cameron, I miss you so much, even though you've been gone for a while. I think about you every day and still break down in tears. You seriously were an angel on Earth, sent here for all of us to realize the good in the world. I still remember moving into Mountain Park and meeting you. You were the nicest, cutest boy around and I instantly liked you. I followed you around for a while; came to your house to see if you were around, or just met up with you around the neighborhood. You used to play in the creek with me. Sailboats out of styrofoam that we would navigate through treacherous situations we created by moving rocks.
I once watched a scary movie at your house, something about a girl on a swing and tarantulas, and I got so afraid that I wanted to go home. You held my hand and joked about the movie, so I would realize it wasn't real and couldn't harm me.
You rode your bike as fast as you could to my house when you saw an ambulance go our way, just to make sure my sister and I were fine.
You taught me and Sydney how to play Ouiji (though I'm still not convinced it was real) and told us how th spirits were controlling the scroller. I know you were moving it to spook my sister and I, but I didn't mind because I always felt safe with you.
I miss you more than I could possibly express in words. I burst into sobs when I found this website.
My sister was the one to tell me what happened. I will never forget that day. I thought she was making a sick joke at first because I couldn't believe you were gone. Once it sunk in, I could barely breathe. I have never cried so hard in my life. I wish I could have seen you just one more time...
Cameron, you will always remain in my heart.

Dear Flip and Susan,

Natalie and I had a sweet night last night remembering Cameron and the wonderful way he treated Natalie always - especially on Easter egg hunts! Natalie is now 14 and I cannot imagine life without her. Stay strong and I hope to see you in June!

Dear Susan (& Flip):

Though I have only had the opportunity to “meet” you briefly through e-mail, Bonny has shared such wonderful stories with me of Cameron, his life, your wonderful church family, and what great parents the two of you were to him. My favorite story is how you let Cameron put surfer stickers all over your black Volvo station wagon! That story alone showed me how deep your love must be for him – how blessed he was and is to have you for parents and I can only imagine the sunshine and true love he brought to your lives and hearts as well. Bonny shared this link with me today, so I just wanted to send a note to say “you’re in my thoughts and God bless and comfort you both.”

May our Lord bless you in a special way as another anniversary of Cameron's Homegoing casts its shadow before you. Sometimes I wonder if it really matters what day it is. They have left, we remain and the wait to hold them again will always be unbearable.

I went to middle school with Cameron and the thing I remember best about him is that he was always smiling and was happy. He was the kind of person that made you feel good when times were bad. He was a special person and I am fortunate that I had the opportunity to know him.

Hello to the Gallion family,

I just thought you should know that we have never met but I have been praying for you since I found out that Cameron was sick. People told me about his great strength and remarkable attitude... I did have a few classes with him and vauled the friendship and light he brought to our school. I just thought you should know that he left an inspiration of strength, to look beyond the sickness (as I am in the hospital for weeks at a time with migraines) thank you for sharing your thoughts with the world and raising such a loving son. My prayers continue....God Bless you!
December 5, 2006
Cameron...I am so glad there is a place for people to go and remember you by. I was just thinking about being with you at High Meadows. You were two years younger than me but we always liked to hang out. You would play your guitar. You were the sweetest kid...

November 27, 2006
I was just talking to Casey Beckwith, and it reminded me of you Cameron. you were a good friend of mine at High Meadows, and even though I left before your troubles became well known, you remained in my mind. I am sorry that you have passed, and I wish the bes for you parents, one of which was one of my favorite music teachers ever. Rest in peace Cameron.

Oh my goodness... I honestly didn't ever know Cameron, but once I began to read the front page, I began balling. The story sounds all so familiar. I've lost so many in my lifetime, half being friends and half being family. One being my best friend. I am just so sorry and its not something that can be forgotten. Love is so strong and everyday I love harder, don't shy away from my feelings/emotions, and just live each day to the fullest-- always knowing my priorities. Thank you for making this website.

I ran across this page and remembered all the times on the bus to Mountain Park and when he came to Crabapple a little bit, and how much fun he always was. Cameron, people still think of you all the time, and we miss you. You always made me laugh, so thank you for everything you gave me. I still pray for you and your family :)

I accidently came across Cameron's site & I am inspired. He was obviously a wonderful young man & my prayers are with you & Cameron. As I was reading about Cameron all I could think of is how small my problems are relative to what your family went through. (and I am certain go through everyday) I also immediately knew how blessed I am that I can go home tonight & hug my three children! I always tell my children to wake up every day & tell themselves how lucky they are. Life, as you know only to well, can be very tough! I am a very lucky man & as I give each of my children an extra hug tonight I will think of you & Cameron!! Its unfortunate but true that your pain & suffering helps others be more aware of just how lucky they are. Again, my thoughts & prayers are with your family & Cameron!

I came across this web site by mistake but after reading the messages about this wonderful young man I was inspired to write a note. It brought tears to my eyes on how lucky you all were/are to be blessed by such a truly remarkable person. Thank you for allowing me into your hearts and thoughts.

Dearest Susan and Flip,
Each time I serve on the altar at St. George, my eyes are drawn to the beautiful window dedicated in Cameron's memory. Though I did not know him well, I knew enough about him to know he was a remarkable young man!
I remember sitting on the stairs outside Cameron's room one Sunday afternoon, singing to him with others from St. George's. The Spirit of the Lord was shining throughout the house, and especially around each of you!
You are loved -- we miss you at SG's!
In Christ's Love,

What a wonderful memorial you have for Cameron. I almost feel that I knew him and yet perhaps I do through his parents.

I want to keep this message brief as I could go on forever about how much the Gallion family means to me. Good Folks....Open Hearts and Homes...Great Music....laughter and a few libations. What a fantastic mixture! As always, I am looking forward to seeing you folks again.
Acquatinces are many, friends are few. I would like to count you in the later.

Your Bud,

Years ago, Cameron Gallion touched our lives. He showed strength & courage beyond belief & lived his life to the fullest. Not many people can say that. He helped us realize the important things in life & not to dwell on the not so important. We miss him terribly & he is always in our thoughts. We thank God for introducing him to us.

Dear Susan and Flip,

The waiting room in the PICU of Arnold Palmer Children's Hospital quickly began to fill that Wednesday night, May 28, 1997. It was the very first time Anna had ever missed service and our whole church family, shocked by the news, started to trickle in after service was over. These were followed by equally shaken neighbors, friends, co-workers and family members, young and old, who came from near and afar. More and more chairs were brought in; coffee and juice was passed around and for the next 34 hours George and I were silently embraced by a roomful of people whose tears mingled with ours in liquid prayers. The collective grief in that room was so intense you could almost see it billowing towards Heaven and, had it not been for our Lord's amazing grace, would have bordered on despair. Holding each other tight, so frightened, so confused, not understanding the why of this heartbreak, we were sustained solely by our Lord's everlasting arms and crushed by the weight of such great a burden, trusted and leaned on Him. It has been like this for almost 8 years now and I know it is not any different for you.

"Dear heavenly Father, thank You for your grace and your mercy. thank You for allowing us to know You and love You. Thank You for Jesus and His finished work on the Cross of Calvary. Thank You for His glorious resurrection. Thank You for His victory over Satan, sin and death. Thank You for Your assurance of forgiveness and eternal life to those that believe on His Name. We pray, dear Lord, that You would place Your loving arms around Susan and Flip and allow Your Holy Spirit to fill their hearts. That even in the midst of this indescribable pain, they may continue to know your comfort and peace."

"...because I live, you shall live also." (John 14:19)

Love you, Susan, you are both forever in our prayers.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Gallion,
I am thinking of you on Cameron's 17th birthday remembering all of his good qualities and thousands come to mind. I cannot believe that it has been this long, and pray for God to look down on you on this day and give you the strength to keep pulling through. I know Cameron is sending his love down from heaven and showering you with his grace and love. HE is helping you and all of us he left behind to show us how much he loves us. Cameron, you will always be loved and are always in our prayers, especially mine. I see your light shining down at me and I know that you want us to move on. We will miss you and we all love you with all of our hearts. God Bless You, Cameron!

Dearest Susan, When I was twelve, my grandmother went to be with Jesus but at the time I couldn't understand and all I could feel was an overwhelming pain, as if a piece of me had been torn out. When I was sixteen, my first love died when the cave they were exploring collapsed and still I couldn't understand and all I could feel was the pain of another piece torn out. I am now a grandma and have been separated by death from many loved ones, including, as you know, our beloved Anna. And you know something? I STILL can't understand and all I feel is the same overwhelming pain of pieces torn out. Praise God that He has given us His Blessed, Blessed Hope!! He will heal these torn hearts and return all our pieces. Heaven enhances what we shared in Christ here. Therefore, as the years go by, Heaven grows closer, sweeter and continues to be a very, if not the most, important part of our lives. Let us continue to grieve with hope, sorrow in joy and offer the sacrifice of praise. I lift you and Flip in prayer tonight, the eve of Cameron's birthday, asking that our gracious and merciful Lord bless you abundantly with His comfort, His peace, His hope.

Hi Susan, just wanted to let you know that I think of Cameron every time I pray - I know he is doing great in heaven. One of his favorite bands, Sevendust, came to my hometown and I couldn't help but think of him when the band was on stage. That brought a smile to my face b/c I know that's what he would have been doing. God Bless.

This morning I awoke thinking of Cameron,Susan and Flip. I hope they know how much we love them. Everyday, as I go through the normal stresses of day to day life, the lesson Cameron taught us all stays in the front of my mind. "To be thankful for gift of life, and to enjoy each moment". Cameron we all feel your light...and it shines brightly. We love you and miss you.

Cameron was one of the greatest people i will ever know. I feel like a better person just for knowing him. He was one of my best friends when he moved down to Florida and started going to my mom's church. We went on a trip to Universal Studios and hung out a lot. I think of him all the time and will never forget all the fun and laughs that we shared. I never really thought of what it would be like without him until it was too late. His memory will never be forgotten by those who loved and cared for him. I want to thank him for everything he has done for so many people around the world.

Dearest Susan, I know your pain and sorrow so much this week. Anna would have been 19 this coming Monday and graduating and all year I've been receiving all sorts of promo mail for her. I remember how just 7 years ago today we were planning for her "dream" birthday gift. She wanted to go to Sea World and pet the dolphins. I had to save all year for us to be able to do it. Little did I know she was so sick at the time. Just like Cameron, she never complained, was always the encourager, the uplifter. I praise our Lord and am so very, very grateful that He blessed these wonderful children with so much kindness and grace! Thinking of Anna and Cameron and all the other blessed children together in Heaven (perhaps even talking of us as we of them!)encourages me to go on telling their story and sharing our Lord's salvation, compassion and promise. May our Lord hold you extra close and may His and Cameron's presence be extra real and comforting.

Your parents are doing pretty well, most of the time...I'm sure today is hard on them. Love, Bonny

Mr. and Mrs. Gallion,
My name is Liz Giorgianni and it is now two years today since Cameron's passing. My heart goes out to your family and I know all of his friends from High Meadows miss him dearly. I know I sure do. He was strong never willing to give up. I admired that in him and I know he is looking down at us as we pray for him. I am sorry and I hope you can find the strength to get over this loss.

Special people are sent to us, by God, to assist those who need strength and bolstering of their faith. Cameron undoubtedly was a gift from Heavenly Father.

I was so moved by the letter from your parents Cameron I needed to write this note and add my prayers.

A note to Susan and Flip to let you know how much we miss Cameron and the both of you. Ivey and I were very touched last weekend as we reminisced about our times together. We were at "the lake" and were remembering Cameron jumping off the "jumping rock". The fall stung his feet pretty badly but he was a great sport and laughed it off!

I wish he could have gotten to know our little Levi. Sometimes I see a glimmer in Levi that I so clearly remember seeing in Cameron: a little bit of mischief and a whole lot of self assurance. I hope that Levi is as cool a kid as Cameron.....just naturally.

We love you both so much and think of you daily. Please keep up the work of being strong. I imagine somedays seem to last an eternity as the hole in your hearts' ache. I wish we could take some of the pain away...but please know that there so many of us that think of Cameron and his wonderful parents daily. We feel his light shining from above!

Much love,
Venessa and Ivey

Hi I read the page and I feel sorry for the loss but we will always know he is in heaven safe and sound. He sounds like a romodel and after I read the the stuff he did and believed, I looked up to him. Sincerely:Steve Kim ¢Ó

Hi Susan, just got you e-mail with your new website for Cameron. Beautiful, just beautiful. May it grow into a haven of hope for the many broken hearted parents out here.
