In 2011, GLEAMNS established the Dr. Benjamin E. Mays Historic Preservation Site to honor and display the extraordinary life of Dr. Benjamin Elijah Mays. Coming from impoverish, humbled beginnings, Dr. Mays rose to become one of the greatest international leaders of his generation.
In Loving Memory
We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.
We think of you in silence, we often speak your name.
All we have are memories, and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake, with which we will never part.
God has you in his keeping, we have you in our hearts.
Ms. Elizabeth Garcia
Rest in Peace
