That name rings a bell. I think I know her. She was a nice person. This is very sad. Life was so horrible for her that she felt better off dead. Gigi, if it's true what you say about her boyfriend, please give me his name and location so I can give him the same treatment that he placed upson her.

I did not knoe Cami but my friend Hellen knew her and her boyfriend Gorden, She is so upset over her death and trying to be there for Gorden. my thoughts and heart goes out to her family and friends. I myself lost my dad when his plane crashed last July so I know how bad it hurts to loose a loved one.

Roxie...sorry to hear about the loss of your father it's never easy to loose someone you love,especially it being a parent...my heart goes out to you....stay strong.As for the lady Cami..It's sad when you hear of anyone committing suicide...you have to wonder what takes or drives a person to that point,why they feel that they are so alone and that there's no other way but to take their own life...it's just sad all the way around.

Thank You I still have my melt downs and cry about my dads death allot of it has to do with the fact we think there was foul play involved whith the plane crashing. The FAA is still ivestagating it and were still waiting to burry him. As for Cami I only met her one but she seemed like areally nice person so all I can do is be there for her friend Helen that is also my friend I feel for her famly espacially her kids.
