tragic death of Amir Hassan - former camper

I was heartbroken to learn of the death of Amir Hassan. His mother has been charged with his murder and evidence indicates that he was suffocated and poisoned in his home.

He is remembered fondly by camp staff as being sweet, smart, and having a good sense of humor. He was always so well behaved and was immediately a favorite among the staff.

The photo is of me and Amir at Jake and Cat's wedding in July 2005. Not often do I run into campers at weddings and it is ever more rare that a seven year old is so well mannered and engaging around so many adults.


The family has established a memorial fund with Wells Fargo Bank to assist with burial costs. Contributions can be sent to: 2601 C Blanding Ave. #155, Alameda, CA 94501. Checks can be made out to: In Memory of Amir Hassan. Account number: 8302418135

It is truly a sorrowful day . . .
