I’m absolutely devastated, to say rest in peace suggests he’s lived a long life and he really didn’t, 20 years old. Cameron Boyce was and is a talented beautiful young man that will never ever be forgotten. Ever. I’m praying for him family friends and colleagues. 🖤 I’m so sorry. pic.twitter.com/pD9hWcJCse
