    Theresa and family, I was saddened to hear of Cam’s passing. I lived beside you on Neptune Road and enjoyed his friendly greetings and the time you were our neighbors. I would occasionally see him in the community and always got the same friendly greeting. I lost my father 4 years ago to pulmonary fibrosis. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
