‘They live on’: Mother of 10-year-old fire victim reflects on his gift of life
Ten-year-old Cameron Hollingsworth was a prankster. One person he could always count on fooling was his mother, Zakiya Hollingsworth.
“Me being his mom, he would always get me. He would say, ‘No mama, I’m just playing.’ I just loved the sense of humor about him,” said Zakiya.
Small in size, but big at heart, Cameron dominated opposing teams on the football field. Off the field he enjoyed science and chess.
“He was an amazing child. He was very outgoing, very outspoken. He had a dominant personality, even though he was very small,” said Zakiya. “He was protective of his family, you know. He just wanted to see everyone happy all the time.”
