Loving Son and Proud Father
Devon was always very loyal to his family and his friends. He was everyone’s protector. He loved with his whole heart. We were so close and he would talk to me about everything and anything, or so I thought. He is missed and loved so very much.
I cherish all of my memories with Devon, all 29 years of them, even the bad ones. However, my all time favorite would have to be watching him with his son James. He was an unexpected and pleasant surprise and he stepped up from day one. I was so proud of Devon for that. Watching the two together always melted my heart. The love they had for each other really was very apparent.
What I will miss most about Devon are his hugs and pecks on the cheek. Hearing his voice, telling me he loves me. I will miss him asking me for rides to work, buying him cigarettes, us giving each other advice. He could debate like no other and I’ll miss that too! Most of all I will miss his interactions with his son and him being there for him. It makes me sad knowing James has to grow up without his Father!!
I would like Devon to be remembered as the kind soul that he was. That he never met a stranger. The love he had for everyone he knew and that the love was returned. He was smart, witty, handsome, and was a great cook. He will forever be loved and missed.
