Kashmir Nelson, 20, transitioned from earth to glory on April 12, 2011 at Washington Hospital Center. She fought valiantly against Leukemia. She was upbeat, yet humorous during her treatment and never complained. In her words, “God’s got my back!” She lived her life to the fullest. Her strength and faith encouraged many throughout her journey. Kashmir began her journey on June 20, 1990 in Clinton, MD. She was born to L. Nicole Nelson of Waldorf, MD. Kashmir excelled in her studies and graduated from Thomas Stone High School in June of 2009. She furthered her education at College of Southern MD and Georgetown University in pursuit of a law degree. Kashmir was a confident, smart and determined young lady who was secure in who she was. Kashmir was quite the DIVA! She must have had stock in the mall as much as she shopped there! She had to have her mani-pedi fix every two weeks. She flashed her beautiful smile frequently and was very kind hearted. Kashmir was a people person and touched many through her part-time jobs at Pizza Hut, Torrid and Chick-Fil-A. She was also a caregiver for a short time. Kashmir accepted Christ at an early age at Mission Assembly Church of Jesus Christ. She participated in Corinth Baptist Church’s youth ministry activities. Although Kashmir’s walk with the Lord was impacted by other ministries, she flourished at Crossroads Apostolic Church under Bishop Robert Eaby Sr. and Pastor Curtis Eaby (with whom she was very close). Her mentor Okoineme Giwa-Agbomeirele became a father figure in her life and is also a leader of the church.Kashmir is survived by her mother L. Nicole Nelson; brothers Derek Nelson and Chris Nelson; her grandparents Andrea Hayden and Charles Fenwick; great-grandmother Dorothy Fenwick; aunts, Patricia Nelson and Wendalyn Nelson; great aunts, Madeline Nelson and Tonya Thomas; a great uncle, Robert Thomas; great-great aunt Pearl Jones; godmother Terri Douglas; and a host of relatives and friends. Family and friends will unite on Friday, April 22, from 10 A.M. until time of service 11 A.M. at Crossroads Apostolic Church, 10725 Willetts Crossing RD, White Plains, MD. Interment will follow at Heritage Memorial Gardens.

    Nicky and family,

    I’ve never met Kashmir but from her picture, can see that she was a beautiful young lady outside and her smile indicates that she was beautiful inside too.

    You have my heartfelt sympathy and prayers:

    May the Lord bless you and keep you;
    May the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you;
    May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.
    Numbers 6:24-26
