In heartfelt memory of your dearest Kamisha--
I wanted you to know that a Women Veterans Conference was held on 8/29/09 in Boise, Idaho--the first ever to honor women veterans. As a USAF veteran (1974-78) I attended to see how women veterans would be honored at this event. There were many helpful kinds of information to assist women veterans of all ages. An especially touching portion of the conference was a ceremony honoring all of the fallen women since the deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. Each of us had a picture of a fallen female soldier, on our name tags, and we each stood to honor that person as their name was called. On my name tag was the picture and name of your beloved Kamisha. I wanted you to know that it was a great honor to stand and acknowledge Kamisha and to say a prayer for her and thank her for her service and sacrifice. I have a son, 20 years old, a RECON Marine, who is due to deploy to Afghanistan in 01/2010. So I understand how difficult it is just knowing your child is going into that sort of environment. Please know that my prayers are with you and I pray that healing will come to you over time. Veterans, like myself, will not forget Kamisha's service and sacrifice. And it is my understanding that these special memorial tributes are planned to be a part of every Women Veteran's Conference that the Veteran's Administration is planning for the future, around the U.S. Kamisha will be continue to be honored and not forgotten. God bless you all for the support you gave Kamisha to serve her country with confidence and honor. Sincerely,
August 27, 2009
I remember all the good times that Kamisha and I had in school together. Kamisha was the sweetest and most thoughtful person when it came to everyone. When you were down and having a bad day she would brighten it up for me! I am proud to say that I am your friend and I will always remember the times we had all the way from Pre-school to Graduation! Thank you for bein there through it all. You are my HERO.... I miss that laugh!

Wow!!It's almost been 2 year's now.Also another Birthday.I still Honor & Miss you.You are still my Hero..I Love you..Ann
July 28, 2009
Wow, it's almost been 2 years now. I know as your team leader you probably didn't care to much for me. I just want to let you know that I really was trying to make you a better leader. You also made me a better leader. You thought and acted like I did as a young soldier. A friend of mine told me about that article in Maxim. It started making me think about you. Its been very hard for me to think or even talk about what happened that day. Spc Block I am so very sorry that I couldn't do what you did for me. Bring me home safe to my family.
To your family, Spc Block told my wife that she would bring me home. This might sound kinda out there. But not long after she passed, there was a white bird that stayed around our trailers. I truly believe it was Kamisha. I am so sorry for you loss. If you need anything, you know her friends who can find me. God Bless
July 24, 2009
Kamisha it has been an honor to know you and to confide in you with so much. You are still in my heart i think about the times in school when we would hang out and wait for the bus laugh and joke around. You will never be forgotten and to this day i will never forget you. Thank you for bein there when i needed you most.
July 09, 2009
Its been almost two years since that terrible day back in Baghdad. Although the time passes and the world keeps spinning, its nevertheless a bit darker, colder and less without you here. I can't believe its been two years - it seems like yesterday that we joked about the way you stood on one leg when you cooked. When you punched me jokingly because I dubbed you "pink" because you reminded me of a flamingo. Well, you have spread your wings and flew - but I know that somewhere amongst the clouds you are there. I know your up there looking down at us, one day I'll meet back up with you and we can continue our conversation about odd cooking habits. To Kamisha's family: I was in the 401st for 6 years and seen the passing of several awesome heros but that doesnt make it any easier. Kamisha was a bright light in all of our lives - a person with so much character. I hope that time has eased your suffering but I know each of you look forward to the day you will be reunited with her. I'm sorry that she didnt come home the way you would have liked, Im sorry that we couldnt bring her back the way you wanted. But just know that July 31st, 2008 was a good day - but it was also a sad day for me...because she wasnt there with us. RIP Kamisha Block.
Very Respectfully yours,
David S. Womack

I'm looking forward to a time when God's words promise: He is making wars to cease to the extremity of the earth. And they will have to beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they learn war anymore.
And God himself will be with them.  And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.

With my deepest sympathy
May 07, 2009
I was going through my files today and found my newspaper that I had saved from the day of Kamisha's funeral. I'm not usually an emotional person but I choked up remembering that day, I had the ultimate honor of bringing Kamisha home. I was with her every step of the way from the airport in Dover to the moment she was lowered into the ground...
I will never forget the love and respect I felt for this fallen fellow soldier. My thoughts are still with the family and I hope that you are all doing well and that God has blessed you.

The Other Side

i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side.

can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i'm not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

it's good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs...the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it's good here on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth...all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side

the world is smaller than a needle's eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i'll be waiting on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth ... all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

To the friends and family of Kamisha,
I was one of the PGR at her funeral. I read the story of the butterfly. Since then, I have had a lone yellow butterfly at the house. The last two PGR rides I've made, a lone yellow butterfly has made her appearance, once at Houston National Cemetery, and again at St Mary's church in Texas City.
She's not gone.
September 20, 2007
We all miss you so much Kamisha ! Amanda and Whit are just heart broken over it all, I have tried to be there for them when they just need to vent and have someone listen. We all think about you every day. Until we meet again .. remember you are my hero girl !

MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY GOES OUT TO HER FAMILY. I TO HAVE A DAUGHTER IN THE ARMY WHICH WAS REAL GOOD FREINDS WITH KAMISHA. THEY JOINED THE ARMY TOGETHER. AT ONE TIME WHEN THEY WERE STELL IN HIGH SCHOOL, KAMISHA CAME AND STAYED WITH US FOR ABOUT A MONTH OR SO. HER DEATH TOUCHED OUR HEARTS DEEPLY. WE WILL MISS HER. OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO HER FAMILY.

No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. My deepest condolences are with you as you grieve.Jane, I am sorry for your loss.I know you are very proud of Kamisha. You have been and will be in my prayers.
September 08, 2007
I met Kamisha at my home several years ago when we lived in Vidor. She lived in our old neighborhood and knew my children well. She was a very vibrant young lady with a smile that could light your heart. Noone can never know our future or what a tomorrow holds....but if only I could have just took one glance into her future, I would have hugged her tight and let her know that she truely was a beautiful person INSIDE and OUT. And my children valued her friendship through their many years in school. We lost a piece of our hearts the day she laid down her life and she will always hold a special place in our memories and deep within our souls. May God comfort the family and give them the only TRUE peace that HE can offer. Her suffering is over from this old world and she walks with Christ this day. May her family take comfort in knowing that. May God Bless You and those who fight every day for our freedom....because freedom sure isn't free. Kamisha taught us that. May God hang a special star into the heavens just for her as a reminder of how she lit up our lives. Love always....The Grays

To the Family and Friends of this Soldier:
I will stand in grief with this soldier's family to honor him. For every fallen HERO there is a bright star that shines in the evening sky to remind us of the cherished gift we were given – even if for too short a time.
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courageous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guestbook for the rest of my life, but I promised Brent that neither he nor any like him would be forgotten and so I will continue until the day there is no longer the need.
We lost our son SFC Brent A. Adams on 12/1/05 and it seems like yesterday. I wish so badly there were things I could say to you right now to make the pain you are feeling go away, but I know first hand there simply are no words that will bring you the comfort and peace your heart aches for. Just know that you are not alone. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you all as you go through this tragedy moment by moment and as you mourn this loss.
We don't know each other, will probably never meet, but will forever be united in the loss of our Heroes. We have, unfortunately joined a group none of us wanted to join, an ever-growing group of families in this situation. May God grant you peace and strength to get through this and be able once again to smile at a memory rather than have only the tears that flow so easily now. To be so proud of your loved one and so saddened at the same time is a mix of emotions very difficult to deal with as our hearts both burst with pride and pain together.
I am sorry that I never knew your soldier personally. While they can never be replaced, neither will they ever be forgotten. You must trust that sometime, someday the loving memories you have will help to sustain you and help you go on. This courageous soldier will forever be your Angel watching over you all for the rest of your lives. It's what brings me some measure of peace and comfort and I hope it will you as well.
To his family and friends in pain, I offer this comfort: When you find yourself in that dark sorrowful place, think not only of how you will miss him, but instead recall the years, days, hours and minutes gifted to you by his presence. The one thing that cannot be taken from you is your wonderful memories that now will mean more than ever.
If you ever want to talk, I'm only an e:mail away and would love for you to tell me more about your Hero.
God Bless this soldier and family who gave all and God Bless legacy.com for setting up this site where families can so quickly share their condolences and prayers with others like themselves.

It has been almost 30 years since I was a guest in the Block's Vidor home. In that time, many things have changed. I have learned that God does indeed work in mysterious ways, and that He can, and does, bring good from bad.
Even knowing this (with an often questioning intellect and wavering spirit), has not made life's trials easy for me to bear emotionally. But I have been blessed that with the passage of time, I have become more compassionate.
My condolences and prayers to the family, friends, and others whose lives have been touched by Kamisha and mourn her passing.
September 01, 2007
I knew Kamish when we were little. I remember thinking how lucky she was that she was so beautiful, and that she would grow up to be so pretty and have a great life. I was older than her by a few years but we went camping together a few times, if I remember correctly. I joined the Army as well in 1999, and went to Ft Hood. I was deployed, and I know what Kamisha went through. All I can say is that these soldiers that have given their lives in support of this war should always be remebered as the bravest of the brave. She is in a better place, and I wish Jane and Jerry, and the rest of her family peace. God bless you all.
August 30, 2007
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

August 27, 2007
I had the pleasure of calling Kamisha my friend over in Korea. I have very fond memories of her and will cherish them always. She helped me out on numerous occasions and we had a lot of fun together. She enjoyed being an MP and the service to her country.
August 27, 2007
To the parents of Kamisha, I would like to extend my heart felt sorrow as I know what you are going through and what you will yet go through in the coming weeks. I too am the mother of another fallen soldier and with God's continued support in my life I try to reach out to other who might need the support of someone who has been where you are. I want to offer you the support you may need to contact me anytime so that you may vent, talk or just seek comfort I am here for you. As a Gold Star Mother I've reached out through God's blessings to many across the country and we have a good support group. May God continue to give you and your family the love, comfort and healing that you need. In memory of my son SPC Harry (Buck) Winkler III KIA Samarra, Iraq November 12, 2006

Jane, Jerry, & Shonta:
I'm sorry for your loss. I remember her as the sweetest girl. She will be remembered as brave, and courageous.

I am the daughter of the late, Howard Segrest, which was married to your sister Arlene. I am honored to say that I have met Kamisha. I will have your family in my thoughts and prayers. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
August 27, 2007
I am writing to offer my condolences to you and your family over the loss of your daughter Spc Kamisha J Block. I lost my son in Iraq on May 6/2007, so I can well understand your pain of losing a child.

When things settle down, I recommend that you contact a man named Michael Reagan @
www.michaelgreaganartist.com


He will draw one portrait of the fallen soldier. He does this for free and will draw any picture of your choosing. He has drawn presidents and other celebrities. My husband and I got one and it has helped me with the healing process. Michael is a truly gifted artist that captures the very essence of the person he draws. I look at my picture everyday and it gives me a connection that I cannot explain.

I pray you will be guided by a higher power to give you peace, comfort and strength in this time.

Psalm 34:18
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit
GOD Bless you and your family. Your daughter was a true American Hero and we are all very proud of her service.

We will miss you.You will be in our hearts.
August 26, 2007
I share the following with you at the time of this immense loss with the hope that it brings you some small measure of comfort, as it has for me:

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
August 26, 2007
kamisha i miss you so much every day.... lots of love and kisses....aunt kassy,,,,,

My heart goes out to you at this time and in the days ahead.

SPC.Kamisha you are truly a "HERO" Thank you Kamisha and all Veterans for keeping US FREE.

God Bless Your family.
August 25, 2007
My heart goes out to the entire Block family who i had the pleasure of meeting only once when i brought Kamisha home for leave before we deployed. Kamisha was my squadmate and my friend. She was a very special person, always able to find the humor in anything and had an amazing personality that just radiated from her. She loved her job and loved being in the Army. I will miss her greatly and so does everyone else here. My prayers are with yall in this time of mourning.

I missed the funeral; I really wish there wasn't a need for one. I present my condolences to you, the Block family, and to Amanda Buck. Shonta, Keep your chin up. Carry On, Soldier On, mon amie.
August 25, 2007
My prayers are with the family as this is a tragic loss. Being a Marine for 5 years and having 2 Iraq tours so far has showed me and taught me to appreciate life. And just like Kamisha I to was willing to lay my life on the line for you great people. She might not have gotten to say it, but from all of us military regardless of branch, we say thanks to the great Americans who support us. God Bless!
August 25, 2007
My daughter Mary Majors taught Kamisha in the fourth grade and has many memories of Kamisha. She says Kamisha was the perfect student; she always followed the instructions and tried to do her very best. My only knowledge of Kamisha’s life is that gleaned from my daughter’s memories, from the recollections told at the funeral, and from the tributes from those knew Kamisha, most tellingly from her fellow soldiers, but we all come away knowing that we will never forget Kamisha, her life, her smile, her sacrifice. She lived and died a shining example of what our county is all about.

No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. Our deepest condolences are with you as you grieve.

I've only meet Kamisha a few times during her short life, however, I know her mother, Jane, very well. She is one of my very best friends, and I love her dearly. My heart is broken for her mother, father and sister, and I can only pray for their grief to ease up at sometime. Kamisha was our home town hero, and her name will never be forgotten in our small town. To her family, God Bless You and thank you for sharing your beautiful daughter with our country.

He was also given duty at her funeral in the rifle detail. He and all the others are deeply saddened by your loss. Your family is in our prayers.

I cann't imagine the grief her family is going threw but I just want to let them know that us Gunfighters will always be here for them and we are morning her tragic death right along with them. It was a blessing to have her in my life... she could easily brighten up my day by simply giving me her famous bright smile. I miss you Kamisha and I love you girl!! Gunfighers for life HOOAH!!!!!

Aunt Jane and Uncle Jerry,

I am at a loss of words but not emotions for your both at this tragic time. As the days pass family and friends will return to their routines in life and you are left with the task of surviving each day. I want you to know that myself, along with my children will never forget the sacrifice Kamisha made. I also want to thank you for allowing us to be a part of the memorial that was held in her honor. It was truly an honor for me to be there for you and I will continue to be here should you need me. I love you and your family and will pray for you each day..

August 24, 2007
Our thoughts and prayer are with the 'Stucky & Block" Families.

I recall very well seeing you come to church when you were just a small child. I knew your families well. Your mother, I just seen in town at wal mart few weeks ago. She always smiles and speaks to me. I think if only i had known...

My heart is sad. I know how it feels to suffer the pain of losing to death. and walk the lonely road of loss to someone that you dearly love. It is a pain that only God can help you bear. In the hardest times , when it seems you can't walk another step, and you feel like your own life can not go on. It is only God alone that can carry you, and keep your heart and mind.

He is our water in a dry and thirsty land, He is our burden bearer, and our strong tower.
August 23, 2007
May God be with you and bless you with His love at this difficult time in your lives. May you feel the love from the people all over this great country.

Words seem so inadequate at a time such as this. Kamisha, we are forever in your debt. As you take your rest in the arms of God, may He send peace and comfort to your loved ones.
August 23, 2007
Please accept my condolences on your loss. I pass on Abraham Lincoln's words in your time of sorrow. " I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours, to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of Freedom." Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers and will remain so for some time to come.

August 22, 2007
To the Block family, I never got to know Kamisha in person, however I did talk to her from time to time when she was stationed in Korea with my son. I got to see her from the webcam and we chatted online. The last message I got back from her was May 29, 2007. I'm not sure how we lost the connection online but I got booted from her myspace.com. She was a very nice young woman to speak with and see. I wish I would have gotten to meet her. I don't know the pain you are going through I have never lost a child, but I haven't slept much since I heard of her passing. My son cared a great deal for Kamisha so we heard alot about Block. I know she is in gods hands now and one day we will all meet up with her. I'm truly sorry for your loss. Spc. Patrick Campfield's mom.
August 22, 2007
Kamisha was a wonderful girl. She used to babysit our three kids when she was in high school. My then 7-year old son always refered to her as "My-Kamisha". He never called her by her first name. All three of my kids would ask my husband and I to plan an evening out so that My-Kamisha could come over and babysit. My oldest son's best friend would plan on spending the night when he heard that she was going to be at the house. Of course, she was five or six years older than the two oldest boys. They just loved her. Her mom and I have been friends for about ten years. We've talked a lot over that time period about both her girls, Kamisha and Shonta. When I was told she was joining the Army, I never dreamed that it would end this way. This world has lost a wonderful person; a loving daughter and loyal sister. Heaven has gained an angel. God Bless you, Kamisha. May His Perpetual Light shine upon you. We will miss you dearly and look toward the day when we will be together again in Heaven.
August 22, 2007
Kamisha I didnt know we were cuzins
til i heard your name on the news and researched my block line and wrote another Block descendant of your
news story and that i regreted sending him this sad news.

I thank God every day in prayer for you and all the Veterans for keeping US free and sacrifing it all as Jesus
did.

I drove thru town today and almost every vendor had some kind of sympathy note.......by the time i got home I was in tears, I do not know the Block family, or Kamisha, but I wanted to say this, that I am so sorry for their loss.....I cannot imagine what it is like to lose your child. God bless the family
August 22, 2007
I pray that God will give you piece of heart in this very sad time. You can be proud of your daughter that she served our country so that we can be free and not live in fear.
August 22, 2007
Wow,
Never thought I would have write this. Well maybe if we were 90. Kamisha was one of the first friends I made when I moved to Texas in 1998. We were always together. I'm going to miss some of the best memories of my life! Things I will never for get; Sleep-overs, Slip N Slide, Paint Wars, Horse Back Ridding, Casa Ole, Block-buster, Late Night Phone Calls, The Blue Van, Boom Town Lake. Pranks that we always did together. The list could go on forever. Man It sucks that it will never happen again. I thought that we would one day reminisce about all these times. Kamisha you are one of a kind! Anyone was lucky to have a friend like her. I have never been so PROUD and HONORED in my life, to call her my BEST FRIEND! Thank you for all you have done for all of us Americans. Our freedom wouldn't be any without brave soldiers like Kamisha. Thanks Jane, Jerry, and Shonta, she was the role model daughter, and great sister. Hope you find peace in this difficult grieving time. May Kamisha rest in peace, and may never be forgotten!
KAM- I LOVE YOU, YOUR TRUELY MISSED

I knew Kamisha to be a very happy, outgoing confident woman, When we hung out, it was always a blast. My heart goes out to her family. There is nothing I can say or do to bring her back, but I wanted to say that she is loved. She was so proud in uniform and seems happy in the role she took in life. Her and the family are in my prayers. I am SO sorry for your loss

Dear Block Family,

I am so sorry for your great loss. Please accept the gratitude of a Vietnam veteran who knows what it's like to fight in a war. But for the grace of God, I may have had to make the same sacrifice. Like Kamisha, I was prepared to do that. She was a great American. You all will remain in my prayers.

God Bless you,
August 22, 2007
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
August 22, 2007
Our thoughts and prayes are with the entire Block family. I did not know her, but my madien name was Block and I am proud to call her my long distance family. God Bless each and everyone of you. Kamisha was a beautiful girl. From what I heard she most certainly had the Block family drive. To her mom, she will be your angel by yourside till you meet her in Heaven.

I don't know you, but I do know the horrific pain you are now going through. My son Sgt. 1rst Class John Michael Hennen was killed in Afghanistan on Fathers Day.I pray the Lord wraps His arms around your family and hold them tightly, as He did mine.It does not make it any easier to deal with or understand why this had to happen, but please know that your most beloved daughter did not die in vain. From what I have read about her, she was a very caring and thoughtful young woman. She was also very brave to put her life in jeopardy to protect the citizens of the United Staes of America. " Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."
John 15:13
I am honored that Kamisha and the many men and women before her loved their country enough to sacrifice their own lives to protect it.
Our fallen soldiers are the TRUE Heroes of America.

"Sweet Soldier"
Kamisha Jane Block
How fragile is life, how fleeting.
For now you are the breeze that blows,
Through the clouds, you're the rainbow shining.
The brightest star that glows.
How precious is life, a beautiful gift.
For now you are in our memories,
In our mind we hear your voice lift.
We see you everywhere...in our dreams.
How sacred is life, how time stands still.
We remember your soft gentle touch.
Your gentle hand we can still feel.
Oh, how we love you so very much.
How short is life compared to eternity.
We see you standing tall in your uniform smiling for joy.
We know now you are forever free.
For you, true freedom is no longer just a story.
How we live our lives will be so different.
For life will never be the same without you here.
We know now you were a soldier that God lent.
And today we honor one who is so dear.
How precious is the candle of light in our life.
Yours will continue to glow in our hearts.
We know that God holds the key to death and life.
"Sweet Soldier" you will always be a part of our heart.

August 21, 2007
Kamisha was truly a hero, she will be greatly missed by all those she was fighting for.
For her family, id like to share with you something i wrote, that i hope touches you the way it touched me,

As i sit here at my desk in this school, i hear them preaching about the cold wars.

About how much pride in our country we should have about how much bravery those who died must have had. At first i just sat there thinking about the waste in war, but then i realized we are all fighting a war. No matter how much we battle our feelings and hide, the truth is the battles of the world affect all our lifes. I learned this when my brother decided to join, i was scared i was angry i felt helpless and alone. I got used to him being in California, thinking this war will be over soon, he wont go into battle not the Eco troop not the 3RD Platoon. I soon realized this war was real, my brother was going over seas, the pain i felt i couldnt show i had to be strong and tell the tears no. I miss my brother so much everyday, yet i know when its all over he will come back to stay. For i realized one day it was ok to cry the tears i no longer had to hide, the day we brought my brother to the airport was sad, but i realized how much bravery he had. I watched as tears came into his eyes and realized he was just as scared as the rest of us, and that made me believe in him even more. So every day before i go to bed i pray to God to help me get good sleep, for when i sleep i sleep for the hours of sleep my brother misses each day. So for everyone who has family in the service, its ok to cry its ok to be sad, just know your brothers sisters mom dad husbands and wifes are ok, they will all remember how you cared for them, they will all see in your hearts and minds you love them. And even though im young i think thats what keeps a soldier going each and everyday, knowing his or her family is looking their way. So be strong for your soldier and pray for his strength, and send him things to make him smile and know that if even for a little while, he put war aside to look at your gifts, while tears slowly rolled down to his lips. Not tears of sadness but tears of love and joy, for he realizes now what he is fighting for...


I hope this has helped you, Your daughter was an amazing woman, soldier, American, we all owe her our lives for what she was protecting for us,
August 21, 2007
Thank you for serving our country and fighting for our freedom. You will be truely missed and Loved forever! God Bless everyone who you have touched!

I didnt know, her favorite color.
I didnt know, her favorite song.
I didnt know, her favorite place to be.
I didnt know, her favorite flower or season.
What I do know is ....
She was one of a million, sacrificing so much , so we all could live free.
We take so much for granted...and its easy, to go through our day, forgetting, that there are so many of our brothers, sisters, Fathers, Mothers, friends, standing guard to protect us.
This brave soldier, is now walking with her Jesus. She gave her life for each of us.
Please remember our Troops.
Pray for their safety and never forget that, they, are all something for America to be proud of.
Thank you Spc. Kamisha Block, for being such a Guardian and watching over your home, your family.
Prayers are with all, who have, had the privilege, to know you~

She gave her freedom for what she felt was right.
She gave her life so we can remain free.
She's an American Soldier, an American Hero.
She lived for the hope of peace, and fought for our freedom.
She loved our land so much that she was willing to pay the ultimate price.
She is now gone,
she found her peace
Another soldier gone, another hero made.
Another mother cries, another one dies, taken too soon, a true hero in our eyes.
In our hearts you will live forever, Our hometown Hero

I hope you know that all of us who knew Kamisha as PVT. Block and PFC. Block in Korea are gonna miss her dearly. In my eyes she was Superwoman! While in the field on a live fire exercise I was mad because my weapon went down and Kamisha looked at me with her fantastic smile and said,"Don't be a girl Owen, i'll protect you." She made sure to bring that up every time she had a chance. I love you Kamisha and will miss you. You are the definition of a soldier.

A Multitude of Thanks to Spc. Kamisha J. Block, and so much gratitude for this Brave Young Soldier's Courage, unselfish Dedication and Service to our Country and for Freedom.
Rest In Peace now, Kamisha, in God's Loving Care and may the Peace of God be with the Block family.

Those who Make these Sacrifices, So Many and So Young, shall Never Be Forgotten, my brother among them. Killed in action in Vietnam in 1967.

"I consider that our present sufferings.
are not worth comparing with the glory
that shall be revealed in us."
~ Romans 8:18 ~

I am sincerely hoping that you feel the thoughts of caring and support that surround you today and every day, as this Country morns with you, for someone very precious to you, who is a Hero to all of us.
I am so deeply sorry for your loss.
August 21, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

There is nothing that I can say or do to take away the pain or bring you peace in your time of sorrow, but I will offer you and your family my heart felt condolences. I also offer you my prayers that in time the pain will easy and the memories of your HERO will carry you through each day and night. I want to thank your HERO, for his/her selfless act of becoming a member of the armed forces, his/her willingness to defend the United States of America, all that we hold sacred and for the sacrifice that will forever be etched in the memories of all those who knew him/her. Though tears can never bring him/her back, we hope that our tears express our gratitude for the sacrifice that he/she made and our sorrow at his/her passing. I believe for every fallen HERO there is a star shining brightly up above to remind us of the precious gift we were given.

Your mission on earth is complete and you are now a member of GOD’s Heavenly armed forces. Stand down brave warrior and take your rightful place in Heaven with all the HEROES who have passed before.

I made a special promise to LE RON A. WILSON, a dear family friend who joined the Army with three other friends, one of whom is my son (Le Ron was killed in action on 07/06/07 at the age of 18) on the day he was laid to rest as I touched his coffin, that I would never forget him nor would I forget those that gave their lives for our country before him, with him and after him and so when I came across www.legacy.com, I thought what a great way to keep my promise to Le Ron, so I will continue to leave tributes in each guest book until the day there is no longer the need to leave these tributes to a FALLEN HERO.

REST IN PEACE, HERO, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

I taught Kamisha third grade at Vidor Elementary. She was a wonderful student who aimed to please. I remember her beautiful smile and long hair.

I feel my words are so inadequate at this time of your great sorrow, but I was moved to send my condolences for your loss. I had not met Kamisha... yet, I needed to send her my deepest and sincerest thank you and appreciation. May God bless...
August 20, 2007
It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth."
August 20, 2007

*** FEMALE SOLDIER ***

FEMALE SOLDIER YOU TOOK A STAND.
TO SERVE ALONG SIDE A SOLDIER MAN.
SOME MAY THINK THIS IS NOT A WOMANS FIGHT.
YOUR CHOICE WAS TO SIGN UP FOR THAT RIGHT.
A SOLDIER THERE YOU STOOD PROUD, AND TALL.
READY TO SERVE, AND FALL JUST LIKE THEM ALL!
YOU'VE HUGGED YOUR LOVED ONES, AND KISSED THEM GOODBYE.
YOU TOLD THEM NOT TO WORRY,YOU TOLD THEM NOT TO CRY.

A GIRL YOU WERE BORN, A WOMAN YOU GREW.
A FEMALE SOLDIER YOU DECIDED TO CHOOSE.

WITH NO QUESTIONS, YOU DID WHAT OUR COUNTRY ASKED YOU TO DO.
YOU STOOD UP FOR THE DEFENSELESS,THOSE YOU NEVER KNEW.
YOU GAVE OF YOURSELF SO WE ALL COULD LIVE FREE.
YOU EXCEPTED THE PRICE, NO MATTER THE FEE.
A DEBT TO YOU WE CAN NOT REPAY.
THIS WE'LL REMEMBER EVERYDAY!
WE ASKED GOD TO KEEP YOU SAFE,TO BRING OUR SOLDIER BACK HOME
BUT,AUGUST 16TH, 2007 GODS ANSWER WAS MADE KNOWN.
HE TOOK YOU FROM THIS EARTH IN A HURRY.
FROM ALL OF IT'S TROUBLES, AND ALL IT'S WORRIES.

YOUR TREASURES IN HEAVEN HE NOW WANTS YOU TO KNOW.
A MUCH BETTER PLACE, IT WAS TIME, TO GO.

YOUR NOW SAFE IN GODS HANDS WE HAVE TO SEE.
WHERE ELSE WOULD A SOLDIER WANT TO BE?

by Rochelle Waldrep

A GIRL, A WOMAN, A SOLDIER, LIVED!
I WROTE THIS POEM IN MEMORY OF KAMESHA BLOCK, MY HUSBANDS COUSIN, THAT WAS KILLED IN IRAQ. WE ONLY MET A COUPLE OF TIMES. I DIDN'T KNOW HER ON A PERSONAL LEVEL, BUT THROUGH THE WORDS OF HER FAMILY, SHE WAS NOT A STRANGER TO ME! THROUGH MY WORDS, I HOPE SHE IS NO LONGER A STRANGER TO YOU EITHER! IF YOU KNOW HER, YOU KNOW HOW LUCKY YOU ARE. THIS IS A YOUNG LADY THAT STOOD UP, AND TRIED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR WORLD. NOT ALOT OF US CAN SAY WE WOULD SACRIFICE OUR FREEDOMS FOR SOMEONE ELSE. SHE IS A TRUE SOLDIER, A TRUE HERO! REMEMBER HER NAME, REMEMBER HER FACE, SHE GAVE OF HERSELF FREELY FOR ALL OF US, AND WE AT LEAST OWE HER THAT! A SOLDIERS IS ONLY A STRANGER IF YOU LET THEM BE FORGOTTEN! IF YOU WOULD PLEASE PRAY FOR HER FAMILY, ESPECIALLY HER PARENTS & SISTER! ALSO, PRAY FOR THIS COUNTRY & HOPEFULLY A LEADER THAT WILL END THIS WAR & BRING THESE YOUNG PEOPLE HOME.
GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS & ALL!
