Cameron’s Secret Voice Recordings

Tonight as Melia was playing with Cameron’s 3DS it hit me, Cameron had voice recordings on it! He made a big deal out of recording a special song. It was a secret. He didn’t want us to hear it until it was done. One night he played it for me, which was the only reason I knew it was on there. David had never heard it. So when Melia hit play, my eyes got big. I said, “Oh my God. Cameron has stuff on that. Drop it”. I was afraid she would accidentally erase it.

What we found was priceless, and typical Cameron. Second time my day was made today!

Special song for Mom & Dad:


Special song for Reindeer (his favorite): I had no idea this one existed.


Special song for Melia & Zoey (our dog): I didn’t realize this one existed either.


To keep him balanced, I found one he likely recorded for Melia after she was being mean (rude) to him:


Then two of the photos he took. The first one I mentioned on a very early post. He asked to take a photo of Melia and I so he could remember us after we were dead. Brought whole new meaning to that post.


And a portrait of his beloved Reindeer. I now sleep with him. He comforted Cameron every night for 7-years. He does a pretty good job.

  1. So precious and priceless! I have cried and cried over your story and now feel joy from Cameron’s singing sweet voice. Thank you for sharing

    1. Thanks for reading! I’m hoping by sharing him with the world I can continue to keep his memory alive.

  2. What a treasure and a blessing. I know it must bring you a little peace to hear his love for you once again. Prayers for you all.

  3. We have been friends with your Grandma Barb for years. She always talks about your family. Any videos, voice recordings, pictures, and friends of Cameron’s are going to be even more priceless than before. Cherish the memories. Hope your girls and you all will be able to go forward knowing that all Cameron knew was love. And he had you all to thank for it. I am sure you feel that you are a better person for being his mom and dad. <3

    1. Thanks, Lea. He was loved for sure! I’m so glad I got to be his mom…even if it was only for 7-years. I just wish we had more time.

  4. Amazing of him to leave these messages for you! My mother passed away when I was 13 and I have a recording of her and I talking when I was 3 and she tells me how much she loves me and I love to listen to it.

  5. Priceless!! I love this! Thank God for technology! I know you probably think I’m weird, but hearing that first recording, reminded me that Morjahn had sent me almost the same exact recording with almost the same exact tune in a recorded message on Skype. I went back to listen to it, since it was recorded last year or so, and it’s almost eerie how similar Morjahn and Cameron seem to be. P.S. I “loved” this post, but it’s not showing me that I have.

    1. I think that all the time…thank god for technology. I’m so thankful we have so many videos and recordings to remember exactly how he was.

  6. How sweet. Great way to have him close. I can’t help but smile when I think of Cameron finding his dog and waiting for you in heaven. I hope that part of what he told you brings you great comfort.

    1. It definitely does! It was the first thing I said to my husband when we left the hospital. I know exactly what he’s doing right now.

  7. Emily, when I first heard the news my heart broke for you and your family. I recall you speaking to me about your son because our sons share the same name. I am sure it was very hard to relive that story. You did a beautiful job portraying Camerons courage through all he endured. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless.

  8. I am his Grandma Barb and I never heard these before it made me cry but you are so lucky to have his voice to listen to I have a few things in a box that were my Andys and I treasure those I love you all a lot .
