BABER -- Cameron Groom Remembering Cameron Groom Baber September 13, 1990 - January 5, 2002 You've been with the Lord for 3 years now. You would have been graduating from the 8th grade this year. How we miss you, Cameron. Logan is driving and I know you would have loved that. You probably would have played high school soccer next year. Maybe you and Logan would have played together. All of your friends are much taller than me. You were always looking forward to the day you would tower over me! Maybe you would have kept skateboarding and I'm sure you would have lots of tricks. You always loved whatever you did and took it to the limit. Everyone misses you for so many different reasons. Logan hasn't had a better 'entertainer' since you left, but he keeps trying to fill the position knowing he never will. Logan is almost 16 and off being a teenager. I like to think you would still be cuddling with me because you always were my cuddler. But then I remember, you would be 14 and I'm not sure you would go for that. I do have Sarah with me though every afternoon for school. She's much easier to school than you boys were but sometimes that 'girl thing' throws me off like I remember it used to do with you. She changes her clothes 5 times a day like you did. You two would have been fun to watch together. Logan and Sarah have really grown into working out their relationship and it's great how they look out for each other, confide in each other and have a blast, most of the time. There are so many wonderings of what you would be like now but we know it was not God's perfect plan that you stay. We see Romans 8:28 in action. We see how you affected people's lives in just 11 short years, Cameron. I now see that what happened was exactly what God planned from the beginning. But that certainly doesn't mean we don't miss you. We miss you every minute of every day. It's not the same and it never will be. Every day we choose to accept His perfect plan. He has shown Himself to be much more faithful, loving and bigger than the grief of not having you here. We choose to live with the joy of the Lord, knowing we will see you soon, never to be separated again, and for that we are grateful. We love and miss you. Mom, Dad, and Logan
