You crossed my mind today Nish! Just wanted to let you know that you are not forgotten. You inspire me to share our story with others to encourage them to share their thoughts and know they have a friend. I just wish that we could've talk more like we did during training and Mobilization. I only knew you a short period of time, but you left a footprint in this world. You were a genuine person. After all these years, there's not one moment when I think about you and I laugh and shed a tear at the same time. I'll never forget our last words...Me: Happy Birthday Nish, I love ya man! Nish: I love ya too Diddy!

Nish,I knew you when you were so young. You give me one more reason to stay where I am. There is a reason why our paths crossed. With your loved ones pain, you have spared mine the same. I love you. See you when it's my time. Sincerely Forever, Love,Ski

Nish, although you and your family moved back to the US all those years ago, I always felt that one day we would all catch up with each other and that we would be able to have a few beers and celebrate all those fond memories. It's funny as now all those memories and times are such a distant memory now and a lot has happened in all our lives since. It doesn't matter how brief our friendship was the main thing is we were lucky to cross paths and share some great times as kids together. It pains me that we will never get to speak again, but I do endeavour to catch up with your folks again and also Rex and Karen. Please do me one favour and say hi to my dad, I'm sure you may have both already seen each other up there in the warm embrace of heaven. We will meet again, just not yet, but until that time, take care and have fun. God bless you xxxx

Nish's room at Mt. Home
Hello Everyone,

I was stationed at Mt. Home with Nish and we were both in the Comm Sq. there. I have so many memories of him it would fill several pages but all of them I will remember with fondness for he was such a good friend to me. I just found out about his passing it is such a shock for me, I still see him as that young kid I met in the dorm when I moved in 3 rooms down from him and his room mate Corey. I regret not keeping in touch for he was a true friend. I miss you brother and I will never forget you my friend.

Please remove any burden you may feel about Nish's passing. This entire family talked to him earlier in the day and nothing any of us said or could have said would have changed the situation we are faced with.

It's been over 7 years now and the pain is only slightly more numb. Nish is in our thoughts almost every day as we think about how old he would be now and what he would be doing.

We know he is in heaven now with many friends and relatives his favorite grandpa joined him in February of this year.

His Grandpa was a tank gunner in WW II so I hope they pass time bragging about their experiences.

ANYONE who knew Nish knows he would not want us to be sad so for him I try to honor his memory by remembering the good times and that big broad smile of his.

It still bothers me till this day. I am forever burdened with the fact that I was the last person to speak with you on your birthday. I remember your voice and our last words... Happy Birthday brother, I love you man! Nish: Thanks bro! I love you too Diddy!

Oh Nish, I remember the night we met at the oasis. And all the time I sat around watching you play video games, and the night we got into that argument we had bc i made plans to go to a work function with mark and not you. I hear songs so often that remind me of you. Not to mention I swear I see your face in the crowd sometimes. I miss you to pieces. Hope you are enjoying heaven.. save me a seat buddy!

I was looking up old friends from my Air Force days and I came across his facebook page. I was quite shocked to learn of his death. I was Nish's first roommate at Mt Home AFB. He was a great guy and we had many laughs together. My condolences to the Powell family.

It was exactly 2 years ago to the day that you got your 21 gun salute, full military honors and full family send off. You looked fantastic in your Navy Blues and chest full of medals. I miss you son ... more than you could have ever known. Rest now ... no one can ever hurt you again.

Remember your last phone call on this day 2 years ago. So many more things I wish I would have said .. so many things I wish you had told me. Thinking of the little boy in his first boots and jeans set up landing in England in 1978 whe...n you were just 3 years old. You grew and grew and did another 29 years before you left us for your new assignment in Heaven. Below is a link to your guest book, I hope you are aware of it. Love, Dad

It's been almost 2 years now since you left us. You know we visit your resting place pretty much every week and left you some Pumpkins for you to celebrate "Heavenween".

Karen and Frank now have their own teenager and your Mom and I are still at a loss to understand why you made it to Heaven before we did.

We will decorate your Memorial Bench on the 23rd and perhaps God will drop some snow in Spokane.

Love from your Dad ... who misses you as much today as the day you went away.

Thinking about you again today son ... Lee is getting ready to go to Oklahoma and if you had gone to Korea .. you would be coming home from there about now. I wish I could have made some choices for you like when you were little. Even then it was sorta impossible to get you to see things differently after you made your mind up. I pray for you daily and hope you are getting the love your Mom and I are sending your way. Monday, we were sitting on your memorial bench thinking about how much we wanted you on this side of the grass. Someday your Mom and I will lay next to you and people will come to the bench and tell stories about all of us. Till we meet again .. I love you Son ...

I was stunned when I learned Nish passed, I can't imagine the pain and loss his family must feel. Losing a child is never easy, and even harder when in the springtime of his life. I was stationed in the UK and Nish's dad was was my boss, I became great friends with his whole family and babysat for Nish and Karen a few times. Lots of water has passed under the bridge since those days, but I will always remember and cherish the once sweet kind little boy with jet black hair who we all lovingly called "NISH". God bless his family and Nish I wish for you peace in the afterlife, with eternal memories, Gail Jackson, (Once SGT & babysitter, but always your friend)

It has been a long time since I saw Nish, he was 14 I believe. I have since been married and have a son and daughter. I was great buddies with his parents, Neil and Josie in England, UK. I found out about Nish's death last year and have only just found this web site and feel I should pay my last respects to a good looking young lad who had a whole bright future ahead of him! I lost contact with Neil and Josie many years ago unfortunately, but often look back at the "good times". I still see Rex and Karen as children, it is hard to believe how time can fly by and how you can take life for granted. Rest in peace Nish, and God Bless Neil, Josie, Rex and Karen! (from Big C) (UK)

There is a link on my web site www.tpigman.com where you can see pics of Nish and of the memorial we had for him last memorial day. I think of Nish pretty much every day. His Mom and I keep his marker neat and tidy the way he would have wanted it. He was a great kid and I wish he could have called his Mom on Mother's day like he always used to do. God Bless you Nish .. till we meet again, Love Dad

Nish and I were the best of friends in England. We spent a little over a year playing Tecmo Bowl, soccer, and hanging at each others houses. Eventually we joined the AF the same day in July 93'. Traveled to Texas together the next day, and were in the same basic flight. We hlelped each other through some tough times then...and stayed in touch until about 2003. We eventually lost contact due to deployments and assignment changes on both sides...and I was always proud of his commitment to service. However, when I think of Nish now...it won't be as a Airman or Sailor. I'll think of him as the kid I knew in England. My buddy playing hacky sack and talking football. My partner joking around in the Halls of Alconbury High. My pal with the San Fran 49er's jacket and the heart of gold. I'll be thinking of you until we meet again...

I was stationed with Nish at COMSUBGRU10 in Kings Bay Ga. We spent so many 12 hour shifts watchin TV, Playin cards, Playstation, or just cutting up and talking. My wife and kids loved Nish so much. He carried a prayer card I gave him with him everywhere in Iraq. When he came back home i was out of the Navy. We talked occaisionally by phone but I would go out with him every couple of months to a club(when wife let him talk me into it!) I found out last night for the first time what happened, and it saddens me that i was not able to be a part of the services. I loved Nish like a brother and feel so much sadness and also anger right now! Brother I woulda stopped everything to help you! To his family: i am so sorry I wish i talked to him more. I keep thinking maybe?...just maybe? Nish was a true hero to me, a friend to so many.
I love you brother! GOD speed! I will see you again!(and yes...expect a big punch before the hug)

A brother, a hero, and friend to all....As i sit here tonight trying to find the right things to say I find myself remembering that brother that was so full of life, so fun to be around and the only one who could make that stupid nosie...(he knows what i am talking about)...spit bubbles off the tounge that i could never figure out how to do....and all those crazy dance moves that no matter how hard i tried i could never get right...like humpty hump...:0)

We had a great thanksgiving and birthday for you the last time you came home to my house in 06...I was ready last year too, but instead you brought us to you.

Nish, even though we had to see you for the last time the way we did know that we worked as a family..Dad, Mom Rex and "spank" (frank). You should be proud of us (as we are of you) as we came together and thought nothing but about you. Every prayer that was said, every story that we retold at 3 in the morning sitting in the Navy quarters was all about you. The ripped pants in the Spokane bar that no one knows how it got there...aside from you insisting that you and Chuck Norris got in to it...LOL..The HUGE pooh bear you bought me and how you were ready to beat up other kids just so i could have that...and i still do....The storys of you and Rex trying to roller skate in the snow...it made us smile and laugh and to know that even though you are gone now..you had a great 32 years here with us.

We all miss you greatly and although are hearts are sad your funny self lives on in us all. Even in Frank who has now taken on the role of teasing Mom when the times are right...:0)

You are a one of a kind person who leaves HUGE footprints on our hearts forever....to be touched by this angel who God sent to us to find the lighter side in life....Brothers can NEVER be replaced...even when your 6 and wishing you didn't have any...today i look back and thank God everyday that i had you for a brother...someone to watch over me..to tell the mean kids that they couldn't be mean to me..and even when you tossed them in the dumpster for even thinking about it....YUP thats MY brother.

Rest in peace sailor...and when i catch you on the flip side you better have saved me the best seat in the house. I love you brother, forever in my heart and always on my mind.

Loving and Missing YOU

I was stationed with Nish in NMCB 133. Got to know him well on my first tour to Iraq. I will always remember our UNO games in our beat down tents. For those who were with us, Nish I'll "draw four." His demeanor and sense of humor was one in a million and irreplaceable. I could always look to him for a smile when things were not to "peachy." My most humble wishes and condolences to his family. I am truly saddened to here of your loss to your family as well as to our Navy. Nish, rest well and look down over us, give the encouragement we need, when we need it most. Thanks for being a friend.

Whenever I needed to talk to someone or just needed a big bear hug you were there for me. I will never forget how you always made me laugh and how all of my problems just went away when you said funny and or stupid things. I will and have missed you very much and would love to talk to you again. To hear your laugh and feel those strong big brother arms. To here you tell me that it will be ok and that I should just forget about it that it is no big deal. I know that you are missed but are taken care of now and you are where you need to be. You have always been my friend I will forever remember you in my heart and my prayers. I miss you.

December 26, 2007
I was at Alconbury High School 1984 to 1988. Although I didn't know your son, I consider anyone that lived the life we all did in England during that time to be family. Men who choose to serve our country and fight for what is truly important are more than heroes - they are angels. It is comforting to know God had chosen such a special young man to be stationed at a higher place over all of us. God Bless you and your family during this time of sadness and loss.

I know what it's like to lose a loved one. You are all in my thoughts and prayers and time does help to heal the pain we feel, although we never forget.
December 13, 2007
I am a good friend of Nish's Aunt Hope. While I never met Nish, Hope had told me many stories about Nish over the years. How he was a sweet, loving little boy. How he grew up to be a kind, generous and respectful young man. And what a great sense of humor that he had. Nish's passing is obviously a loss to the Powell and Medina families--but the world is less the richer, too. I pray for Nish and those who loved him.

I met Nish about 4 years ago. The first time I met him all he could do was make me laugh. There were times where he would have a group of us crying because we were laughing so hard. He was always cool-headed, hardly ever got mad. I have alot of memories about him and our friendship that I will never forget. My condolences to the family and other friends.

I only had the chance to hang out with Nish for one night while visiting my friend Mark in Kingsland. But he was an awesome guy, so nice and funny. He was also a great conversationalist who educated me and changed my views of the men and women who are fighting for us. Thank you Nish! I wish we would have had more time. My condolences to the family, he was a great guy.

Nish is my son. I couldn't be more proud of him. He was a funny and giving kid his entire life.

He paid his dues to America by going twice to Iraq. He earned more medals and citations in 15 years than I did in 24.

I love him now and forever. As far as his Military Service goes .. remember this:

All gave some .. some gave All

Big thank you to the Patriot Guard for making sure Nish had a respectful and honorable funeral service.

Nish and I were very good friends. We met last year in October. I never met anyone so enthusiastic. He helped me with alot of my ordeals and was always there for me whenever I needed him. I thank God everyday for bringing Nish into my life.

Nish is my buddy. We were practically room mates for three months. We had each other's back and promised each other that we would make sure that each other returned from Iraq in one peace. So to lose him at home hurts even more. I am happy that I was able to speak to him and wish him a happy birthday. Read John 16:33

I was married to Nish from 2000-2004 and we became friends again last year. Despite our differences, I know he was a good person and we always had fun together. I will miss him and he will always have a place in my heart. I send my condolences to the family and wish them well.
