Here is a letter from his mommy:

Dear God

I know I don't pray to you as often as I should
But I need you to help me, please, if you would

Will you please give a message to my little angel Camden?
... I know this is a big thing I ask of you,
Tell him the message is from his Daddy too!

My beautiful son, there's so much I need to say
Things I didn't get to tell you on that cold sad day

Son, your Daddy and I love you very much
Even though you are not here
In our hearts we will always hold you dear

I know we're not supposed to ask God why,
But I ask God constantly, why you had to die

We don't always feel it
But God has helped your Dad and me,
There's some things he has brought to our attention,
Some things he wanted us to see,

I have always heard things happen for a reason,
That it happens in its own due season

Something good always comes out of something bad
So here are some reasons to help me from being so sad,

You were took from us on that cold morning of yesterday (4/22/13)
But heaven is your home forever to stay

We will never get to see you walk,
Or as a little man grow,
But sickness or pain you will never know

Tears I will never get to wipe from your eyes
When this makes me sad, I will just look to the sky

Heaven or Hell, you didn't have to choose
For that reason you did not lose

I know you're in heaven
For this I can smile
Because you didn't have a choice
You couldn't help but win

Son, all I have are memories of you,
And these memories are going to help me make it through
It's these memories that are going to help me heal

Camden, I just wanted to tell you that I love you
And goodbye I will not say,
Because goodbyes are forever, and I will be with you again someday,
So until then, continue to laugh and play
Your Daddy and I love you and that's all I need to say

God, there is one more thing you can give my son
That I did not get to give,
God will you please give this to him?
Tell him it's from Mommy,
That it's my special kiss

We all love you and miss you so much Camden
