Kamisha J. Block Obituary

Kamisha J. Block attended high school on a mission: to study, graduate and get to the military. She didn't intend on doing it alone. Ever the focused motivator, Block encouraged friends and classmates to move toward the same goal, school registrar LaDonna Clark said. "She was their fire," Clark said. "She said 'I'm not going to graduate until you do,' and pushed them hard." Block, 20, of Vidor, Texas, was killed Aug. 16 in a friendly fire incident Baghdad. She was a 2005 high school graduate and was assigned to Fort Hood. "Whatever she set her mind to, she could accomplish," said Hollie Stinnett. Block's cousin. "I saw her the day before she left to go to Iraq earlier this year, and she still talked about how she wanted to get into law enforcement once she finished her term in the Army." In high school, he worked at a Waffle House. "Not a customer that ever walked through this door ever saw her with a frown," said Arnette Buck, a co-worker. "She loved people," Block's uncle John Stuckey said. "She was out to help people with whatever she could." She is survived by parents Jerry and Jane.
