Cam R.I.P.
2 years ago

I have been aware of the passing of one of our group members..Cam has passed away.Apparently his cancer returned. I got to know Cam through many of the groups here in Care2.


We often disagreed on issues.Cam was a foreign policy hawk who loved many of the politicians I despised,but I'll tell you this:despite our differences,he never condesensed,and always treated me with respect. I was a member of his Former Silent Majority group..trust me,with many of my positions,that was not an easy group to be part of,but Cam's criticisms never became personal,we always managed to have a frank dialogue,and he would even defend me when criticisms in the group became personal. I wish we had more folks of differing political beliefs would be more into dialogue instead of the putdowns that seem to be the way of life online...

Anyhow,Cam was a member of his group,and I thought folks should know

 Thanks for creating this thread David.  Cam was certainly one of those with whom we loved to disagree.

 

My friend Kit has created a memorial thread out in the boards, should anyone wish to comment or go to the memorial site to comment.  I am sure his family would appreciate it.

I left my comments on Kit's memorial site for Cam. Sweet of her to have set that up.

Cam and I didn't always agree, either, but yes, as you say, David, he was a very honorable and respectable man, one whose example should always be remembered.  Peace be with you, Cam.

Cam was a such wonderful person - we were so fortunate to have him among us.  His heart will linger in mine forever.   

Rest in Peaceful Angel wings, Mr. Vallee

Somehow this seems appropriate to me...
