When asked to draw pictures of and write letters to CAOL volunteer Steve Walker, this is what the second-graders at Marshal Bansfield Elementary School in Stockton came up with. Steve said he was 'crying with laughter' over this one. You need to see this.

To the CAOL family,

We have been shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the sudden death of Cam
Beach, Chair of the Board of California Operation Lifesaver, Friday night of
an apparent heart attack.

Cam has been the epitome of a professional with the deepest passion for the
success and advancement of our organization, transit and all things to do
with railroads. We will miss him greatly.

Please take a moment to follow this link that highlights some of his vast array of experience. This is a man who has made a
difference!

As more information becomes available, I will pass it on.

Pete
