    I did not know Devon or his family. However I am a mom that lost two kids in one year. The loss of my son, Matthew, was by suicide. I know the deep wounds and unbearable pain these family members are going through. I just wanted to say I’m so very sorry and know no words can help the pain. The different in my kids dying. My 23 yr. old, Stacy, did not plan to die. But Matthew did. That is a pain that is so different. God bless all of you. You are in shock you will not remember all that you have dealt with. If ever down the road please remember my e-mail if you ever want to talk. Again I’m so sorry. God is with you and your handsome son IS in Gods arms now.

    Tracy and Al,
    Tom just loved him as he always came into the weight room at TI and had a joke to tell or was making someone laugh. His character and spirit warmed everyone he was around. May Devon rest in peace and you and your family know that now he is in Gods hands looking over you all.
