Mr. Cameron I met you Sunday night and had the pleasure to take care of you. I could see the spirit in you that you was a great man. And your wife, daughter, sister, and your brother in law loved you very much and how strong the bond was between you all. Rest on. No more pain fly high Indian brother.
