    "Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it." And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them." ~ Mark 10:13-16 Prayers and deepest condolences for you all.

    My deepest sympathy goes out to your family during this hard time. I am going to miss having Devin in my classroom. He was such an intelligent and artistic young man who always brought a smile to myself and his classmates faces every morning. Whenever the students were given an assignment (especially if it involved drawing), I could always count on Devin for going above and beyond what I asked him to do. He made my job as a teacher worthwhile. Rest in Paradise Devin... The candle with the brightest flame burns the fastest.
