  3. Words cant express my sorrow and sadness on the passing of my long lost friend and patriarch of the GND Crew. Although we parted ways and went about life long long time ago, each and every bombing mission I always had Jaimie in mind every time I repped the crew. He truly was a pioneer and a stand up guy who was respected and loved by all that had the pleasure of knowing him.
    As I battle my own demons having just lost my son, I just hope that his immediate family and closest friends cherish the time spent and the experiences with him and continue loving him for the great guy that he was. I know for a fact that he wouldnt want it any other way.

  4. I got to know Jamie well over the last couple of years even though our graff lives did not intersect. His tales of the days in Kelly Park and the exploits of GND crew
    would have made a riveting novel. We would speak about the 70’s IRT’s vs. BMT’s, past kings and his present day life. He was a stand up guy who was all about family. He was humble, generous and genuine. This makes no sense and I have nothing but good memories of him. Wish I got a few more years to have Jamie finish the rest of those stories. My condolences to his friends and family in this most difficult of times.

  10. I just can’t believe hearing about this. I thankfully had the chance to hang out with him, as well as Hash, Ram 707 and Dusty at Five Pointz in May and as usual, he was nothing but friendly, talkative and generous with his time with someone who grew up in awe of GND. He was always just an authentic guy with no attitude, sharing stories and a laugh or two. And it is absolutely true about his memory! He always remembered exactly when we met, and EVERY single time we saw each other after that, and what we talked about! Truly someone who will be missed, and who should be remembered for the person he was. Long Live “Mr. Ice: GND”. Forever a writing legend and Brooklyn Icon. Graffiti Never Dies…

  11. Just need to thank every one again for posting these nice things about my brother on this page.

With deep love and respect…REST IN PEACE MY LITTLE BROTHER…DANNY TAT-2

  12. For some strange reason I decided to Google Mr Ice GND and up popped this page. I am both proud and honored to see the wonderful things written about Jamie. He was my brother, my friend, my hero, my protector…the list could go on forever. I was who he liked to refer to as his “kid sister”. The pain never eases, the tears won’t subside and my mind will forever be in a fog due to the loss of this incredible man. Much love to everyone who has taken the time to write their thoughts and praise on this page. Even more love to my other brother Danny and my niece Janine…love you guys sooooo much. R.I.P. Jamie…Mr. Ice GND…YOU WILL LIVE ON FOREVER!
