    Mr and Camden weren't even friends. We talked back in thrid grade she helped me like everyone else in my class bc I had had a bad accident and was in a back brace. But she was also the only one that didn't make me feel like a complete idiot and failure when I was the only girl on the wrestling team last year. She would also make these little jokes that no one other than me got. And she was there when had my friat and only meet and she was the only one (other than the coach and my family) that said I did a good job and that a boy couldn't do any better.

    I didn't know Camden as well as many others that I know, but everytime I saw her or interacted with her, she would always make me smile by seeing her laugh or grin or enjoy life. I'm very sorry about your loss, but she's in a better place, and will always be remembered in our hearts. Fly high Camden, rest in peace.

    Camden was a close friend of mine in elementary school. We were in girl scouts together for years. She had an amazing personality, a beautiful smile, and a contagious laugh. I have so many fond memories with her that I will never forget. I will miss her. My deepest condolences to the family. Fly high Camden, you will be forever in our hearts.

    When I heard she was gone I couldn't believe it. She was the person to always put a smile on your face. She was a beautiful soul. I'm glad I got the chance to meet her. Fly high Camden.

    Jennifer, Justin and family, there is nothing I can write here to make anything better. There are just no words. Just know that you have been in the front of my mind daily since I heard the news and all I can do is pray for healing for your poor souls. I didn't believe that it was your Camden, it had to be someone else's Camden. She was a sweet girl and I always enjoyed talking with her. If you ever need to talk or vent I just live around the corner. I am so so sorry.

    i’ve been friends with Camden for five years. She was always the person that could put a smile on anyone’s face. Out of all of the memories that I have with her my favorite would have to be when she punched this boy in the face for me. After that i knew that we were going to be good friends for the longest time. I have and always will love Camden no matter what, and i will never forget her beautiful smile and amazing personality.

    I got to know Camden this year as her Flex and PE teacher. She was sassy and funny to be around. My heart broke when I heard the news and was absolutely devastated. Praying for the family. RIP Camden, I’ll miss you. Mr. C

    Camden and my daughter were inseparable in elementary school. She came to all her birthday sleepovers. I felt privileged to be able to watch her grow and teach her during her 7th grade year. She was so full of life and there was never a dull moment with her in the room. Camden you meant the world to me and I will miss your beautiful smile and vibrant personality.

    Sweet Camden, I always called you model. I smiled when I’d see you coming down the hallways at school. I miss the hugs. I miss you. You have a piece of our hearts.

    Camden was a good friend. Also, one of the best teammates I’ve ever had. Always cheering from the sidelines. She would always wipe her shoes before stepping onto the court. She was very sassy, quirky, and outgoing. Camden will be missed by many, but she was loved by all. I’m going to miss her beautiful face and smile in the hallways. Her laugh made my days. You went way too soon, Camden. We love you so much. My heart aches for you, Jennifer and Justin. May she Rest in Paradise.

    I taught Camden and her brother Zach in 6th grade. I loved this girl so much!!! She was funny, quirky, silly, and sassy! She was beautiful inside and out. I have only talked to her a few times since then, but I actually dreamed about her last week and prayed for her when I woke up. :( My heart is so heavy to hear this. Praying for the family!
