    I’m so sorry for your loss. I was fortunate to get to go to high school with him and lucky enough to get to be escorted by him for homecoming one year. He was a very sweet guy.

    Dewayne was a truly nice guy whose time on earth ended too soon. I was one of his high school teachers and it was a pleasure to know him and have him in class. He always had a kind word for everyone. I extend my condolences to Dewayne’s family and friends. Although I lost contact with him over the past few years, I am certain he will be greatly missed.

    I love you daddy, I am always thinking about you. You were the greatest man I ever knew and ever will know. You didn’t deserve this. My heart is breaking but mending at the same time knowing you’re not hurting anymore. You can finally be free.

    Enjoyed the time Dwayne was at Santa Fe High School. I was his principal. He was such a fine young man and one that would do whatever you ask of him. I’m sure his life reflects that once he left Santa Fe. I’m sure he will be missed by friends and family. I’m so sorry for your loss.
