"To Prince "Rashee" Teewia, It's not a day go by that I don't think about you, and miss you so much. The wonderful smile and great personality was truly a blessing not only for you but to the ones that you embraced with your presence. I miss you my friend, you will be in my heart forever. I love you. May God bless your family. You will never be forgotten"

"I remember Teewia walking into the S-1 (human resource) office in Fort Campbell, KY to update his life insurance information. As we began to talk I learned that he was a former student of NCCU in Durham, NC. Instantly we had a "carolina bond". I can still hear his voice and see his bright smile. I thank you for your bravery to serve for a country that is so far from your own. I'm attending NCCU now and when I graduate next year, each step across the stage will be in memory of you. Years have past, but everything about your presence in life is still so vivid. I can only imagine the pain your family lives with because as a friend the pain continues to runs deep. God bless your family and your soul.
Peace from your Carolina friend
Valerie Haywood of Raleigh, NC
