Memorial Day 2012
Not a day goes by that you are not the first thing on my mind in the morning. I wish I could tell you it
get easier as time passes but it doesn't. Son, I love and miss you with all my heart.
I love you,
In Honor Of Raymond Neal Mitchell III(Neal)
My beautiful brother.
I'll never forget you.
I'm sorry big brother....
I wish you could have lived to see me turn 16.
Words are so hard to find at a time like this for it
will be 6 months as of July 6,2007 since my son was killed. His sister,
father and I have all suffered the ultimate loss out son our brother
our grandson. "Raymond and Joyce Mitchell Sr" his beloved Grandparents
now in TN. Both of whom he loved especially his Grandma. We lost our
baby boy to sniper fire on Jan 6 the worse day of my life . Seems as if
it only happened yesterday. He was in the Army stationed out of Ft.
Drum , NY. He thought it a bit cold for his taste though. All we have
of our son and brother are warm memories and his childhood stunts what a
challenger he was . He was born in Nashville TN. Grew up in Aurora
Colorado his favorite place . But stayed with is grandparents a couple of
years in West Memphis, AR. What a little hero he was from the moment I
heard his first cry, A mothers love is hard to explain but everlasting
He was so much like me the protector , the challenger not afraid of
anything really.A black diamond , snow boarder , black belt in martial
arts, and could zoom a fast ball at 90 mph. He was a very exceptional
The brother part well of course he loved his sister like all big
brothers do but his job in life was to tease her and torment her . lol They
were quite the pair growing up.
We all miss you Neal and will never stop. You are so much more than a
hero to the US even though they " society" has forgotten you we , your
family will never forget you my beautiful , blue eyed angel. I LOVE
MOM and Caroline

In memory of my son. It will be 2 years coming around
the corner since your death
I have had a very hard time letting go of you and don't know if I ever
will completely. I see that smile that will never die in my mind those
amazing blue eyes
you have that change with what you wore. I think of your sister
Caroline and how hard a time she has had with your death. I'm aware I am
speaking to you as if you were here but somehow I think you may know. I
surely hope so. You were such my little clone in personality, giving and
loving and generous and funny. Though you look like my uncles. We still
miss you son and is so hard to accept your not coming home again.
I know your Dad and sister and grandparents still miss you so. I know
their hearts will never mend but I have a saying that it's not how hard
your hit but how well you rise back up again. You were such a survivor
like your Mom such a challenger and that is what your name means "
champion". I will be at your graveside on Christmas like last year and
decorate were you rest. I miss you so much and wish would could
trade places . I hope you are at peace and feel you are. I still have
dreams of you
and meet you there instead of the world. I love you son and so does
you are my hero, my son, my little challenger and I have never felt the
love I feel
for you and Caroline nor the pain I feel from losing your presence on
R.I.P. my beautiful boy. I love you so much and hope you watch over
I will never say goodbye for I know wherever you are we will be
somehow some way when my body dies.
I love you MOM

Raymond N. Mitchell III known to all of the boys of
C.co 2-14 as neal
with each passing day it hurts more and more knowing that i wont get
the chance to see your face and just be around you like i had such a
pleasure of doing so in the past but with each passing day and memory that
i do have of you i will do my best to keep your memory alive and
celebrate your life as best i can each and every day and try to keep my chin
up and live my days the best i can only wishing that you could take
mine in exchange for yours. you were a brother to me and brought out the
best in me as much as you could through all of the tough times we had
went through and the one memory that will forever be etched in my mind is
your priceless smile that only made another fellow soldier smile when
seeing yours. i love you with all of my heart and hope to see you
someday soon in that big mansion in the sky.
with love honor and respect

In Honor Of Neal Mitchell
You continue to honor Neal's life in everything that
you do that is good and strong and patriotic. Thank you for sharing him
In Honor Of Spec Raymond N. Mitchell III
I have paused today during my "running about town"
usually caught up in the things that apply to "Me" to honor not only this
young man who served our Country with much Valor but his comrades both
past, present and future.
My hope today is that we as a Nation can put aside our differences and
draw together as one to follow the example that Spec Raymond N.
Mitchell III and his fallen comrades have set before us. This Country is
worth fighting for.
Now let's all do our part and keep our Country together and strong.
God Bless the Families and Friends who have lost their loved ones.
