Cameron, she said, loved to set up her son Rhys to “shock” his mother (Linda Boyd) with language that other people would punish. She knew how a child would long to be able to utter a swear word since she, too, was a child at heart. She played Rhys’ video games while recovering from back surgery. We spent entire weekends at rented houses in Bodega Bay, California, playing bridge, cooking, and eating with friends on the gorgeous Pacific coast.
Cameron was passionate with animals.

Cameron and Linda have a puppy named Shelby and a cat named Zizil. The couple adopted them when they heard that a pair of kittens found in Golden Gate Park, we “went to the flat where the kittens were kept in the bathroom (a great place to play with a hamper full of dirty clothes and all the toilet paper they could unroll), and she sat on the floor watching them until she had their names – Mahto (Bear, in Lakota) and Zizila (Little Yellow One, in Lakota),” Linda told Google.
When the couple’s friend, Shelby’s guardian, passed away from pancreatic cancer, they decided to adopt Shelby.
