"I was lucky enough to work with Cam and he always made my day. He was one of the reasons I looked forward to going to work while he was with us. He was one of my favorite kiddos and made a lasting impression on my heart. I still think about him all the time, even though it's been about 2 years since I worked with him. His infectious smile and warm, caring hugs will forever remain in my heart and he helped me grow into the person I am, without even realizing what he was doing. I carry a drawing from him in my wallet to this day and I will cherish it and his memory."

"I am so very sorry for your loss and I am so sad to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. I was blessed to have Cam in my 7th grade classroom (Des Moines Public Schools). He was so smart and inquisitive; asking the "why" questions-always wanting to learn more; especially in science. Cam was one of a kind; the student that brought many smiles to our classroom with his sense of humor. He was also thoughtful; when we were out for Covid, I wrote to each student, and Cam wrote a very nice letter back to me. "

"I had the pleasure of working with Cameron as a 4H judge. He came to the table with an infectious smile, a positive attitude and lots of personality. He was attentive and so respectful to all I had to say. These are all the qualities we hope our youth have and he certainly did. I'm sending my deepest sympathies to his family, the Mills County 4H program, and his friends. Gina Battey"
