Rest in Peace, Devin, and God Bless Devin's family and friends.

"Donít grieve for me, for now Iím free!
I follow the plan God laid for me.
I saw His face, I heard His call,
I took his hand and left it allÖ
I could not stay another day,
To love, to laugh, to work or play;
And if my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kissÖ
Ah yes, these things I, too, shall miss.
My lifeís been full, Iíve savored much:
Good times, good friends, a loved oneís touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too briefó
Donít shorten yours with undue grief.í
Be not burdened with tears of sorrow,
Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow."
-Irish parting poem

I've known Eddie - Devin's Dad and Debi Devin's Aunt - from growing up in Terryville CT. Devin was in my daughter's 2nd grade class. I'll never forget him. My thoughts are with his family.

Devin was one amazing kid. He had so much potential and he loved to race motocross and work on his 1990 Red Mustang. That kid will seriously be remembered and NEVER forgotten. I love him and will miss him until the day i die..

Rest In Peace Devinn

devin, you have no idea how much i miss you so much, not a day goes by were i dont think about you. almost everynight i glance at yer pictures and realize how short life can be. and i hate that you were taken. i couldnt even believe that you knew evan too and i hated keeping all that stuff from him about you. and im sorry for that i just didnt want people saying bad things about me... but i shouldnt have been selfish. and im sorry for not going to yer funeral i wanted to, you have no idea how bad that killed not going. well this is the first comment ive ever written about you and all i have left to say is that i love you and i miss you. keep watching over us. <33 r.i.p
