ITALY REMEMBERS ANZIANO CAMERON WILLIAMS

On behalf of the Rome Italy stake, I express our sincere condolences to the family, and our deepest gratitude for Elder Williams' divine work during his mission service in Italy.
Looking at what he did and reading about the example he has given in facing the illness with such a positive and faithful attitude, we bow our heads in due respect for the sweet spirit that this sad experience has brought in the lives of all that knew him and in ours.
We can all certainly learn from such a divine Christlike example of faith and love. We pray for him and his family.
We will miss him.

Respectfully,

Massimo De Feo
Rome Italy Stake President
We never met Elder Cameron Williams, however, because he served in the Rome Mission as we did, he was always in our daily prayers that we continued to offer for all missionaries who worked and are still working in that special and so loved part of the Lord's vineyard.
Now, the Lord's plan is including Elder Williams in His work behind the veil, where he will surely continue to be true and faithful in all things.
We pray for having enough courage and strenght to persevere in keeping our Covenants and deserve to meet him one day at the Celestial Presence of our Heavenly Father, together with all those are near and dear to us.

President and Sister Pasta
Cameron David Williams 1982 ~ 2008
Cameron David Williams, our dearly loved son, brother and friend, was set free from the bonds of mortality, Saturday, February 16th. He was born, December 9th, 1982, in Orem, Utah.Cam was victorious in life and was received by his Maker who gave him life. He is in a state of happiness, a state of rest, a state of peace, where he has respite from all the tubes, catheters and illness that tried to hold him down. He thirsts no more, he is no longer tired, he hungers no more, he runs, he walks, he is laboring and doing whatever is required of him, he is full of life, full of energy, and he is enjoying the presence of his ancestors and his Heavenly Father. Though his passing is devastating to us, we were granted a gift of six additional months that were beautiful and sacred. As his family, we feel cherished and blessed by our association with so great a man. Cam was dubbed at an early age by his siblings as "the perfect child." Indeed, he kept his religious covenants, honored his priesthood and fulfilled his roles, responsibilities and stewardships with great vigor. Cam took on a vicious foe in gastric cancer with all his heart, might and mind. His faith in Jesus Christ and in His enabling Atonement, coupled with the aid of non traditional and traditional medicine, gave him power to wage battle daily and to defy all medical laws. He handled this burden with dignity and grace. He kept his body and spirit undefiled and thus received the blessings of physical, emotional and spiritual strength, stamina and peace. Cam was a generous person and a friend to all, particularly to those whose hands hung low. Cam loved life and all the good things that were offered. He served an honorable and focused L.D.S. mission in the Italy, Rome Mission. He was entering his senior year at BYU. Cam has left a legacy in his short 25 years of love, honor, service and friendship to those who had the good fortune to know him. Cam had long arms and touched so many. Cam made a difference for good in the world and blessed the lives of countless people along his mortal sojourn. We join our hearts with those of you who knew him in bidding him a fond farewell and "we'll see you soon." Cam is survived by his parents David and Paula Williams; his siblings, Amber (David) Bauerle, Lindsey, Charisse and Tanner and his little nephew, Corbin; his grandparents, Shirley Williams, Paul and Alice Mann; along with many uncles, aunts and cousins. Funeral services will be held, (possibly closed casket), Saturday, February 23rd, 2008, at 11 a.m. with visitation two hours prior at the Provo Sharon East Stake Center, 1060 East 2500 North, Provo, UT. An "open casket" viewing will be held at 6 p.m., Wednesday, February 20th, 2008, at the Sundberg-Olpin Mortuary, 495 South State Street in Orem. Interment will be in the East Lawn Memorial Cemetery in Provo.

THE PASSING OF CAMERON WILLIAMS

Dear Family and Friends,

With heavy hearts we inform you that our valiant son passed away this morning at 7:19 a.m. after battling to the end. He left this estate to the next without pain and with dignity. All his family was by his side through the events of the last 24 hours.

We know that Cam is thrilled to be free from all the tubes, catheters and cancer. He is probably right now going around meeting all his ancestors and having an extraordinary experience. We know he is in a better place. We will be forever indebted to you for your prayers, faith, kindnesses and support. Cam was victorious! We were granted both quantity and quality time battling with and serving Cam.

Funeral service will be arranged shortly. We are most likely looking to Friday as the day of funeral….a day to celebrate Cam’s life. We will follow up with more details as we make them.

With love and gratitude,

Dave, Paula, Cam and Family

Cameron Williams' dad;

Dear Family and Friends,

Due to God’s grace and mercy and by virtue of everyone’s personal and collective heart felt petitions to our Creator, Cam is still fighting with all his heart, mind and spirit. He has ups and downs while he is on life support. Due to a great physician at the hospital who has and is doing everything in his power, utilizing the talents and resources at the hospital, coupled with his compassion, Cam has still a chance to get strong enough for the ventilator and the continuous dialysis to be eliminated. Cam is remarkably without pain….an absolute “tender mercy” from our Savior. As his faculties become more awakened he is more uncomfortable nearly continuously and needs constant movement, adjustment, rubbing. His pneumonia and lung capacity has not improved a great deal the last few days, due mostly to his absolute lack of any energy reserves. His liver is still in high distress and his abdominal fluid has become hardened, encapsulating all his organs and his kidneys are not functioning. Every day Cam becomes an even more perfect recipe for God’s Grace to grant a miracle if it His will. All He would need to do his touch Cam and he would be completely healed.As all of his family surrounded him last night and was massaging him, stretching his limbs, rubbing his feet, sharing events in their lives, all the sudden Cam feebly started to point at everyone and after guessing for many moments what he wanted us to do, one of his siblings finally said, “Do you want us to leave….” He shook his head emphatically up and down. We got a chuckle out of this and we left him for the night.We remain optimistic, hopeful, exercising as much faith as we know how to, trying not to let all the tangible evidences break us. No man can take our hope away. Our family is being strengthened to handle our circumstance.Cam just needs a special pebble to nail this goliath between the eyes. We are waiting upon the Lord to provide this pebble.With hope and gratitude,

Benefit concert for Cameron Williams:

Hello everyone!

As some of you know I am putting together a benefit concert to help raise money for Cameron. The concert is March 8th at Timpview High School and will feature:

Peter Breinholt (one of Cam’s favorite artists)
Sam Payne
Joshua James
Mckay Stevens

All of the artists are donating their time 100%, which we are so grateful for. I need a few things from you:

Please put this date on your calendar – I really want to fill the seats!!!! Show will start at 7:00 p.m.
I am going to need a lot of help with advertising – I am getting fliers printed next week and need help putting them all over BYU and UVSC apartments, also hanging posters at stores, etc.

And the last thing I ask of you, which could really help this cause is to find some sponsors for the event. We will be printing around 8,000 fliers that will have all of the sponsors on them, also at the concert; there will be a big poster or two showing who is sponsoring the event.

This is an excellent way to even bring in more money before the concert even takes place. I know there are many companies that would consider spending even $250 towards something like this. I know each and every one of you could find 1 or 2 companies that would love to sponsor. Since we are printing next week, I would need an email back from you with the company logo as soon as possible as you find any sponsors. I would like the minimum sponsor amount to be $250.

Please, please help me with this – I know we can make this effort the most successful fundraiser yet. Even if some of you students went door to door to some companies, I know you will find sponsors! Or think of family, friends or anybody that works somewhere that could sponsor. $250 (or more) is not a lot to ask a company, but could add up quickly for us. I did this in High School to raise money for my dance team, and raised $3,000 just by telling companies that we will put their logos in our program. You can also tell them that Timpview seats 1,480 people, so there should be many people that will see that they have sponsored the event. I will also mention all of our sponsor names on stage before or during the show as the artists are setting up.

I really hope to hear from all of you soon with your lists of sponsors!!!! The fund has been dry for almost a month and I want so badly to relieve this financial burden from my parents as much as possible as they are paying out of pocket around $8,000 a week! And remember, I’m not asking for your personal donations, but your help with gathering others.

TogetherweCAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope to hear back from you ASAP!!!

UPDATE CAMERON WILLIAMS
Thursday, February 7, 2008

since thur. Cam has had some small improvements such as his heart is at a healthier rate, his blood pressure has been great, and his oxygen is slowly getting better although fluctuating along the way. the last few labs have shown that his biliruben and other liver markers have become stronger and are heading in the right direction. Cam's been building his own blood (RBC) the last few days as well as his (WBC) white blood count decreasing which is a great thing.the last couple of days his body has had a hard time releasing fluid normally and therefore he's become incredibly swollen. the doctors came to the conclusion that his kidneys are having a hard time and last night attempted to inject him with something to release the fluid. they tried this twice without any success. so the other alternative now is Cam will be immediately put on dialysis this morning. meaning another catheter will be placed so his kidneys can become stronger and function properly before they fail. we must pray that this dialysis will help him and that he'll only be on it temporarily until his body is working to his greatest capacity again.please, please continue to keep him in your hearts and prayers. he's come too far to not continue to be blessed with miracles.love,lindsey

UPDATE Monday, February 4, 2008
From Cameron's sister:

As soon as we thought life couldn't get anymore scary, Cam aspirated and started having a hard time breathing on Thursday night... his oxygen slumped and he was luckily a block away from a hospital to be rushed and to have a ventilator inserted.after a couple of hours of him being stable they life-flighted him to the ICU at Utah Valley. Since then he's been under a doctor endorsed coma or in other words highly sedated so that he doesn't have the reflex of gagging his ventilator or ripping his NG (nose) tube out.Cam's had another catheter placed on him, a new pick line on his neck, and another blood transfusion since Thursday. The doctors have been running a very successful oxygen program that they've seen many positive results with. Cam will remain sedated until his body is cooperating and able to again breath on his own. The doctors have already seen great improvements with him since the first day he was admitted to ICU.We continue to be optimistic, because there's absolutely no reason to be otherwise. We are completely aware of his critical stage and we are aware of the odds that we're up against, but Cam has had SO many miracles and beaten hundreds of odds so far, so why would we expect otherwise?Some of you have asked if Cam's been in pain, or perhaps may be wondering if this is what Cam wants, 'to keep fighting!" absolutely it is. Cam was asked just days ago, if he could have one wish or to be anywhere in the world where that would be and he said, "here at the doctors, to keep fighting"Cam has never ever said anything close to wanting to give up, or why me? Miraculously throughout this whole experience Cam has only had some small pain. It's come and gone a few times, but it's always been tolerable, or fixed by priesthood blessings. I hope you all know Cam's desire to live is just as strong as my family's. We have not pushed him to do more than he's wanted, and for those of you that know him, you know he'd surely let us know if he were to want to give up. He's stubborn, he's always had his own opinion and there's nothing that's ever come out of his mouth other than he wants to fight.Please continue to pray that he'll become stronger and be healed.Thank you for all the prayers, hope and love... keep it coming.L, L

PROPHETIC PASSING
I imagine he's running to Marjorie now,
Yes, running, not waving his cane.
I see him embracing his father and mother
While they keep repeating his name.
I see him now meeting his forebears,
Brother Brigham and Joseph are there.
Sweet reunion of prophets, united by service
That only such noble men share.
I see him embraced by the Savior
While Father says, 'Good and well done.
So faithful in stalwart endurance, I welcome
My noble, most excellent son.'
I then hear the ripples of laughter
As he says the reception's just fine,
But he hopes that he'll get an assignment or two
Since there's no need to waste any time.
I can hear his clear voice in the stillness
At the close of this sweet Sabbath day,
Have faith and move forward — there's work to be done.
President Hinckley would want it that way.

Subject: Richiesta digiuno e preghiere

Cari fratelli e sorelle, vi chiedo di pregare, durante questo digiuno, per Antonio Mameli, un nostro amico di Aritzo che ieri è stato investito dalla caduta di un grosso albero in montagna. Antonio lavora per l'Ente Foreste della Sardegna e, nel momento dell'incidente, stava operando sulle montagne sopra Aritzo. Dopo un lungo e difficile soccorso è stato trasferito all'ospedale di Nuoro con l'eliambulanza. Vi chiediamo di pregare anche per la sua famiglia, la moglie Anna ed i quattro figli. La famiglia di Antonio sta ricevendo i colloqui missionari.Ringrazio sin d'ora tutti coloro che vorranno unirsi a noi nella preghiera e nel digiuno per la famiglia Mameli.
