Darling, sweet Cameron. I find this news unfathomable, that a brilliant light such as yours could be gone. I think immediately of your beautiful smile, your infectious energy and your absolutely boundless talent. You, the baby of the crew, so young they were forever pumpkining you out for ‘fake Carlos’. To have watched you spin your way through these years with kindness and humility and just begin to come into your own…it is cruel and ugly to see that taken away. I send an ocean of love to your family with whom you were so close and who must be drowning in heartache. As a mother I simply cannot comprehend. It is small comfort that at least you shone more brightly in your few years than most do in a lifetime. Dance through the stars, keep shining. I just still cannot believe. 🖤

There’s one more star in heaven… it doesn’t make sense and words are hard to come by during times like these. A few small things I think the world should know. Cams inspiring energy and incredible talent allowed for him to accomplished more in his 20 years on Earth than many people do in a lifetime. A performer, mentor, philanthropist, friend, brother, son. This kid always had a smile on his face. One of the kindest humans I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and the privilege of working with. He approached life with humor, joy, passion and astonishing talent. He was a mentor, spending hours and hours working with goof balls like me to make sure I knew what I was doing filming the dance and sword fight numbers in D2 and D3, and a friend. He raised thousands for clean water non profits in Africa and always had time for fans. Cameron loved his family and spoke ill of no one. It’s tragic saying goodbye to a friend who had so much ahead of him… Rest easy brother. We love you and we miss you ❤️
