Jewelry Party!

Hello everyone! I know it's been a while since we have posted anything on this blog, so if there is anyone still checking it out and looking for a way to help, we have another event coming up. A friend of Jami's who is a Premier Jewelry consultant has offered to do a jewelry party and give ALL of the proceeds to Jami! The party is going to be in Sierra Vista this coming Tuesday, October 27th at 6:30pm. If you can make it, please email me at and I can get you the address and further information. (please put in the subject line of the email "Jami's jewelry part" so I don't delete your email) At the party, we will also be holding a small silent auction of items that have been donated as well. Lastly, if you won't be able to make the party, but would like to order something, email me and we can work something out! :)

Hey everyone I am working on this book for Kason still. I would like to have more stories. Please email me actual stories of you and Kameron. They don't have to be long or life altering. An example is that one time Kam and I stayed up till 3am throwing apricots at semi trucks! Nothing too great but it will be fun for Kason to know his dad did something like that. Please email stories to Thanks so much!

Photography Raffle

On August 19th, 2009, people all across the country were shocked, stunned, and heartbroken at the news of Kameron Haban passing away. On that day, we lost a husband, father, son, brother, and friend. Not only did we loose a great friend, but Kason lost a great father and Jami lost her best friend, her eternal companion.

When Kameron passed away Jami's life fell apart. How was she going to take care of Kason all by herself? Where was she going to live? How was she going to afford all the medical bills and pay for a new life?

To help out with the costs there have been quite a few ways to donate money. There is the direct donation to any Bank of America or through PayPal. There will be a couple silent auctions to help out. And on September 25th, there will be a Benefit Concert at EAC in Thatcher.

And now, there is another way. All across Arizona and in Utah, photographers have come together to help out as much as possible. There is a Photography Raffle that has been going on for a couple weeks now and has already raised a few hundred dollars.

Here is how the raffle will work. For every $10 you donate you get entered into the photo raffle (If you donate $20, you get put in twice etc.). On September 26th, we will announce the winners of the raffle. Listed below are all the photographers and links to their blogs where they have more information about the raffle. Please click on the photographer servicing your area for more information.

Please check out each photographers blog and website. Each and every one is extremely talented and all offer different looks, styles, and visions. You will not be disappointed.

The amount of help and gratitude that has been shown for Jami has been astounding. People all across the Nation have been reaching out their hands to help. Offering a place to stay, offering money, and giving prayers and love. It always amazes me how much one person can make a difference. How much one person is able to brighten up someones life when in depressing times. I'd like to take this time to thank everyone who has helped out whether it be by organizing a Benefit Concert, putting together a silent auction, donating money, opening up your homes, giving a little prayer, whatever you did, however big or small, it all adds up. So thank you.

With Love,
Jeremy Davies
(Jami's brother)

Today is the funeral. Can I suggest we pray extra hard for Jami and her family? Let's all pray that everything goes as planned, that it is a beautiful service, and most of all for strength and peace for those who loved him!

Here is a post Jami did a few days ago of her reflections of the upcoming service:


8/26: One week

Whoever thought up the word widow, is awful. What a horrible word "widow" is! It makes me feel like I am 80 years old. But, it is the title that I have now been given by society.

I have been a widow for one week now. And I survived. I will say that the first 72 hours were the WORST to get through. After those first three days, I started to think a little clearer and actually be able to focus on some things.

I still have a hard time being alone and I sleep with the light on. But, atleast I am able to get out of bed in the morning and face the day. I cannot eat in the mornings though or I just throw it right back up. I have no appetite and no matter how much I sleep at night I am still exhausted. But, I would assume these are all normal things for just losing a spouse.

This past Saturday we went to the Gila Valley to pick out the cemetery where Kameron will be buried. As soon as we started walking around the Central Cemetery I KNEW that is where he should be buried. The view is beautiful, it is surrounded by mountains and just down the hill is the Gila Valley Temple. It is so perfect.

Everything is coming together for the funeral and I am so pleased with how it looks. It will be nice to have Friday over with, it's going to be a long, emotional day! But, we are hoping to make some good memories as well.

Today I went to the temple and I was a little nervous about going. Maybe because I didn't really know what to expect? My mind was all over the place and I had a really hard time concentrating but, as I got into the Celestial Room, I had an overwhelming feeling of peace and comfort. My life is in the hands of our Heavenly Father. He is directing my path and whatever is placed in my path can be conquered with the help of Him. It doesn't make me miss Kameron less and it doesn't take away my lonely feeling but, it does give me the reassurance that I need to make it through each day. He is not going to leave me standing alone on the side of the road.

It was a good day but it was exhausting, it sure is a long drive with a two year old!!! But, he's a trooper. Thank heavens for temples and for the blessings that we receive there.

Only one more day until the funeral ... I cannot wait to have Friday over with.

Book for Kason

I think it’s safe to say that a big part of everybody’s heartache is the thought of little Kason not having his wonderful Daddy with him as he grows…
A friend of the Haban’s has offered to create a book for Kason of memories and pictures of Kameron. He is asking that anybody who knew Kameron and has a favorite story or memory they would like to share that they email him. Any story that shows Kameron’s generosity, love, humor and personality will be treasured memories that Kason will be able to know his daddy by. Please email Jason at with stories and pictures.
