    Vernon girl's memory lives on at Maple Grange Park

    One year after her young life ended much too soon, Devin McClendon's memory is living on at the spot at Maple Grange Park where, in the past, she could be found many an afternoon playing basketball with her friends or walking her dog. Overlooking the site is a tricolor beech tree, donated in Devin's memory by her parents, that was planted in a ceremony June 23. The ceremony, which included words of remembrance by Devin's family and friends, took place one year to the day from when she passed away at the age of 14. "We wanted something simple and beautiful to remember her by, and this was a special place where she used to go a lot," explained Devin's mother, Joanna McClendon.
