My name is Kamisha and I am Cameron’s best friend. I would like the entire family to know I am praying for your strength and peace. Cam would speak so highly of his grandfather and even mock him (using his voice). I remember one day Cam called his papa and put him on speaker phone and he was happy to hear from him but fussing about being bothered 🤣. We laughed so hard because Mr. Higgs didn’t want to be bothered, however he wouldn’t stop talking. Unfortunately I never got a chance to meet him but through all the stories I feel like I know him. Enjoy paradise Mr. James

Dr. Higgs,
I know that the days and months will be hard for you, but take care of yourself and give yourself GRACE.

The way that your Dad loved and cared for others made him the shear epitome of a real MAN. Your Dad will always be with you, so talk to him and he will continue to share his love and advise. Your Dad was very proud of you and he’s expecting You To Be The GLUE.

I’m a phone call away, and I will be praying for you and your FAMILY
