I worked at clay city for the last several years as well as became part of the community moving in as a stranger. I can tell you that not only does this community take care of their own in life they celebrate them in death. Cameron was such a fun kid and I absolutely hate that his family and his friends have to go through this loss. I have no doubt in my mind that he would have moved mountains in his adult life. I pray his spirit continue to do so in each and every one of your lives.
