  21. A tribute
    By: Myeisha K Stubbs

    A brother in arms, Mind Gamez, we recall,
    A son, a father, beloved by all.
    In service and honor, his country he graced,
    With laughter and valor, no challenge un-faced.

    His humor, a light that never dims,
    Protecting, working, full of vim.
    A life taken early, a story untold,
    In our hearts, his memory we’ll forever hold.

    Children he cherished, now under his watchful guise,
    Parents consoled, as he looks down from the skies.
    Our Ruff Ryder brother, your legacy’s not done,
    In each act of kindness, you live on, never gone.

    In deeds of warmth and words so strong, your spirit forever lives on.

  22. Lena Winstead

    My God comfort you in your heart & and bring
    Peace to you & your family.
