Devon Koy Stone
Nov. 24, 1992 - Oct. 18, 2008
He was 15 years old. He was a son, grandson, nephew, cousin and a friend. He was loved and adored by all that truly knew him. He was also high maintenance. He had a raging temper. He hated rules. But he was a friend that could be depended on. He would give you his last dollar, his shirt if you wanted it and his coat if you needed it. He helped feed the homeless and he was a champion of the underdog. If you told him a secret he never, ever told. BUT he trusted very few with HIS secrets. He was a true and loyal friend. But he hated school. He struggled every single day. He was suspended or expelled more days than he actually attended high school.
His name was Devon Koy Stone. He was my grandson. One cloudy Saturday afternoon, Devon told his mom he was going to see a friend. He got in the passenger side of a car with a friend he had known only a couple of weeks and they drove away. The 20 year old driver was racing down the street trying to pass a car. First on the right and then on the left. As they approached a small hill he didn’t see the truck coming. As he got closer and finally did see the truck he slammed on his brakes, lost total control of his car and the passenger side of the car wrapped around the front of the truck. My grandson was gone. He was 3 ½ minutes from his house.
Devon absolutely loved life in the fast lane. He loved speed, and wanted to do everything fast. Live fast, race his motorcycle fast and grow up fast. He would have loved the opportunity to be an intern in a place where he could learn all about the machines he loved and how they worked. And I would have loved for him to have him to have had the opportunity to pursue a career in the areas he was passionate about.
You know a lot of people say teenagers are irresponsible, immature, and selfish. But I know that isn’t true. Devon was one of the most generous, kind loving human beings I’ve ever known. For months Devon’s parents, myself and other members of his family had been telling him that the kids he ran around with were NOT his friends. We were suspicious of them, thought they were irresponsible, selfish and disrespectful. Devon would get so furious at that suggestion. He defended his friends and his loyalty never faltered. It was the ONLY thing Devon and I ever had harsh words over.
I believe Devon’s time on earth was a blessing, and his passing an opportunity for me to share with you a very important message. When you get behind the wheel of a car you are taking on a very serious responsibility. You have to make smart, mature decisions. I know exactly how one bad decision can have a huge ripple effect. Please..I ask you to protect your friends, their friends and their families by making smart choices behind the wheel.
About Devon's Blessing
“To provide scholarships for teens that will need financial help in furthering their education. Also, to help troubled and struggling teens in need whether it be food, clothing, medical assistance, pay for their GED, and other issues as they come up. To be able to give sponsorships to young teens that want to participate in a sports activity (i.e. bike racing, Motocross) when parents cannot afford to pay but the activity would help to focus these young people on something they are interested in.”
Although Devon’s Blessings strongly focus on youth, assistance is available for any
individual, no matter age— if truly in need.
Although annual fund raising events are held in order to enable us to continue helping others, contributions and donations are needed, always welcome, and greatly appreciated. Your gift to Devon’s Blessings will be a charitable contribution and the appropriate information will be given for you to reflect on your taxes.
