|Let the memory of Donald be with us forever|
"I didn't know who you're personally but your father DeVaughn is my everything.. he told me story about how close you are both.. i never heard relationship between son and father like you and your father
I know how suffering your father is because of losing you.. no one can take your place even me in his heart... Debo may you rest in peace and i promise i will make your father happy..."
"I just want to say I think of Vaughn often his smile and laughter. I miss him so much. Gone way too soon. I love and miss him. I will see him on the other side. RIP"
"Happy Birthday DeVaughn, you are truly missed we will celebrate the day of your birth tonight with a big bang of fireworks to light the sky, as we know you so loved, the sparkles that will dance in sky will represent your smile that we all missed."
"My condolences go out to the family and friends of Donald. From reading about him I know he will be missed and was loved by many. No matter what, it can truly be said that death is an enemy and soon it will be brought to nothing (1Cor. 15:26). I have found much comfort in the Bibles promise of a resurrection hope of our loved ones at John 5:28, 29 and hope you will too. Death was never a part of Gods original purpose, in fact he yearns to soon bring an end to it and the suffering it causes your family and friends. Revelation 21:4 states: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I did not know Donald, but I read his obituary and I hope these scriptures will help to brings some comfort knowing that others care. If you would like to learn more about the Bibles promises and the hope it brings, please feel free to contact me."

"Wow!!! What can I say other than I've known you to be a loving and devoted father of two of the most beautiful little girls. You would often talk about the things you did with and for your children. How the baby girl would not wear anything unless she could add her tutu to it. You were a wonderful father and a good friend/co-worker who will be truely missed. You gave us all nick names... some better than others.lol So Vaughn this is your "summer breeze" saying rest well me friend you left us way too early."
"Vaughn was more than a co-worker. He was my Lil Brother and friend. Vaughn was a very loving a caring person with a big heart. He was one of the greatest fathers I know. I often told him I wished he was my father. We laughed and joked around all the time. I will miss and love my friend forever. R.I.P.

"Devaughn will truly be missed. He was loving father who protected, provided and LOVED his children and my cousin Mico. He was not just a friend of mine but family and I loved him as such. He had a way making you smile when he walked in the room. We were all always happy to see and spend time with him because we knew it was gonna be a good time! From the 4th of July trips to WV to chilling at Aunt Donna's house for the weekend, it was always filled with fun and laughter. Just to watch him with his girls always brought joy to my heart. Those memories of you Devaughn will forever live in me and Rhiley. My condolences go out to his mom Ms. Sherry and family.
Sincerely The Martin family"
"Still seems so unreal. However, I am glad that I did get a chance to see you not long ago. My most memorable time I shared with DeVaughn is the night my family played quarters "Pokeno". Eventhough we both cleared our board and I called it first...my response was " It's ok Nephew we will share this money" and we did!! Will never forget it. Nor that smile and the respect of love you showed for your children and the loving companionship for my Niece Mico. Such a nice down to earth person since the day we met. RIP my adopted Nephew. DeVaughn you are missed. Sending prayers and condolences to Mrs. Sherri and the rest of the entire family."
"To the man that expressed to me so many times how he loved his family and wanted his family to be made whole and complete. I admired DeVaughn for the passion he so longed to have one day, but sadly I guess, it was not meant to be. I believe DeVaughn is at peace and is at rest. He will be forever missed, tear.

"We just surrounded him to sing happy birthday at the Family Reunion. For many of us there, this was our first time getting to spend time with him. As I would look around the room at all of the family gathered, I can remember catching a glimpse of him smiling and laughing with his two beautiful girls, father and siblings. I think we really embarrassed him when we prolonged the happy birthday song, but somehow I think he enjoyed the attention. Just goes to show that you have to make the best of every day. RIP Devaughn."
Have a suggestion for us?
