    My thoughts and prayers to Cam's family and friends. Cam was a friend of my daughter. She phoned us in great pain at the loss of her friend and to ask her father to sell his motorcycle. My husband witnessed a friend and his young son crash in front of him in rainy conditions in a benefit ride. He was on the exit ramp coming onto the highway, which was blocked to other traffic, when his bike fishtailed out of control. He was not going fast but he lost his life while his son suffered scrapes on his hand. My husband will never forget that experience and Cam's family and friends will never forget him. We never know what can happen. It is more important to have compassion for those suffering this loss at this time. Cameron, you were a blessing to those that knew you.

    I am very sorry for the lost of this young man. We all know God does not make a mistake. Words are so inadequate @ a time like this, but may the comfort of friends & family be your strength now and in the days ahead. God bless you all.

    My heart goes out to his family and friends. Everyone is so caught up in proposed "circumstances." It really doesn't matter what or how it happened a young person who was loved and cared about lost their life. I lost a a great friend a few months ago. I admire the composure of his friends, family, and instructors who have posted here because a lot have comments have been disrespectful.

    I lost a brother and a best friend in this accident and to see that some of your posts are insensitive and ignorant make me livid. Instead of assuming, show his family and friends some respect and leave your comments to yourself. That being said, I've known Cameron for about 8 years now and have lived with him for the past 2. He was a great, funny, respectable and irreplaceable person. He will be greatly missed amongst his family peers. Thank you all for your support and prayers. We will stay strong and continue to believe that Cameron is truly in a happier and better place. We love you Killa

    I am a medical professional and yet have 2 bike riders in my family, husband and grown son. I am saddened for this family's loss, no matter what the circumstances.

    If he wasn't an ECU student, this would not have made the news.
