I did not know your son but my grandson Eli spoke so highly of him.He felt that your son was a strong positive influence in his life. He told me "Nana he was my best bud" I could always count on him! My heart aches for you but know your son was beloved by many and will be so missed by his friends.

We will always remember the days when Devin, at about age 9 or 10 was on a ball field playing baseball or football and his Dad as the coach and Mom and Sister rooting them on.
Great ball player, Good times.
Had the best smile, manners and respectful.
We are so heartbroken over his passing and Heaven definitely gained an angel.
Our thoughts, prayers and love to the family.

My heart is broken and sadden for the loss of Devin! He was such a good and manner-able guy that I consider as one of my own. He had a BIG HUG FOR ME always! I will miss his smile and just seeing him throughout the county! Miss B., Wayne & Michelle I am here for you all. Psalm 34:18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
My Prayers to you all
