Brandi Jackson is with Emma Hall – “I have only Cameron Prince in my feed this morning and it makes my heart happy to see all the love for him. Just another testament of his character and reputation.
Cam was a light. He loved Jesus and it showed. He was so special to me, Emma, and Haden. To everyone. My heart is absolutely broken. Passing to heaven is the highest honor due to salvation but I can’t help being so sad because of his age and just because we will miss him so much. Not only was he a faithful member at the gym, he was in our life and home. He never failed to show us he loved and appreciated us. I called him my other son and meant it. He helped me clean the gym so many times at closing, he made me gym playlists that didn’t have cuss words, he asked me to do all of his signs for him and his friends that he knew didn’t have anyone to make them. He was a cheerleader, a networker, a photographer, a servant for and follower of Jesus, he had Jesus into his heart. He was a leader and a piece of the heart of Hillcrest.
I don’t understand why his life was cut short and won’t know this side of heaven. It’s not for me to know. Its my job to trust God and that’s what I’m doing. Life is so short. Hug. Love. Text. Call. Visit. Take time. Don’t be so rushed. Listen. Be compassionate. Have grace and mercy.
One of the verses that gives me peace right now is:
“Good people pass away; the godly often die before their time. But no one seems to care or wonder why. No one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come. For those who follow godly paths will rest in peace when they die.”
Isaiah 57:1-2 NLT
Please please pray for Tammy R. Hopson-Prince, his dad, his brother, and family and all of his sweet friends at Hillcrest. The kiddos are young and can’t fully process this. If you have a student’s number, send them a text to let them know they are being prayed for.
He will be so missed in our lives.”
Leah Hall Farley – “Every Friday for the last 12 weeks, I have woken up to a text message and graphic from Cameron Prince. You see… Cameron did all of the photography and graphics work for the Hillcrest Football team. He was just as much a part of the team as any player on that field wearing a jersey. He loved anything Hillcrest and he had the most Patriot Pride! He LOVED so big. He was a FRIEND to ALL, a true friend. He could have cared less if you were young/old, black/white, band member/football player etc. I have never know anyone to have as many friends as Cameron and he was only 16 years old. He always seemed to be right there when I needed someone to hold the door for me or help me carry something heavy. I can assure you that he will be missed by so many. But back to those Friday morning messages… they always started with “RISE AND SHINE. It’s Gameday!” Well tomorrow morning I won’t have a text from Cameron but I will rise and shine, not because it’s gameday. But because I know that Cameron Prince knew Our Lord and Savior and I know that he is in heaven worshiping Jesus. He will have the best seat in the house for tomorrow night’s big game. Please continue to pray for the Prince family and all who knew and loved Cam.”
Tammy R. Hopson-Prince – “Family! Cameron Prince has transition too be with the Lord this morning! Keep the Prince family in your prayers! #CameronWELOVEYOU….#OurbabyFoughtagoodfight…#RESTINGINJESUS”
