Oh my goodness...I did not know Devin, but heard of his last happy days on earth, through my son, Otis' friend, Andy. I'm reminded of a poem called, "Last Fragment": "And did you get what/you wanted from this life, even so?/ I did./And what did you want?/ To call myself beloved, to feel myself/beloved on the earth." -- Devin was so very clearly beloved. My heart goes out to you. What a beautiful spirit this boy is.

Beautiful, beautiful. beautiful Boy! Inside and outside, with his infectious smile, megawatt charm, his charisma. But there was something deeper and that was what made me see such a special young man. His mom Niki introduced me to his grandparents as, "She loves Devin and his music too." And I surely did. I know he loved Christ & I will see him again in Heaven. Love you, Lil Man!!!
