CASON, AHMED AKIL, age 24, of McCalla, AL, died serving his country in Baghdad, Iraq on April 4, 2004. Ahmed, known as "Mayo" to his friends and family, was a strong-willed and determined husband. He will be remembered for always going the extra mile for others and his willingness to put aside his needs to help if possible.
