To the Family of PVT Dewayne White. My deepest sympathy for your loss. I am sorry that it has taken me 7 years to say these words to you....but the loss of my only Child cause me much pain and sorrow. Today, I can say that I am Honored to have lost my son while in service to his country , while on a Mission with two of his fellow soldiers.

I know my son held your son in high regard. He hand picked his men....The Best of the Best !

Today, is a tough day for me. You are constantly in my mind and you go through it like clock work. I miss your smile, I miss your laugh, I miss your hugs, I miss your love. I miss every bit of you.

I love you so much. I wish you were here.
Love, Kita~

Your Mom Loves and misses so much. She will forever carry you in her heart. Her pain is there, but through her Faith in God, she goes on. She knows you are with Our Heavenly Father. We will never forget, and we "THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS, YOU GAVE OF YOURSELF SO THAT WE COULD BE FREE!!!

I saw an Eagle two weeks before they told me you were gone, I saw this same Eagle in my backyard again two weeks on the second year of your death. I went to vist you on that hill where They placed you, I put some flowers there to let you know I was there. I know where each one of my children are, but I don't know where you are. I wish there was a way you can call home from heaven... maybe thats what it is, you are home and that's why your not calling. your mom is missing you so much... love mom...
March 02, 2009
DeWayne,

I miss you so much. I sit and think about all of the memories I have with you and I smile. you always could bring a smile to my face. It's hard to believe you have been gone so long, I remember finding out like it was yesterday. I know only your physical presence is gone and I try to take solace in that. I miss you and this is all I have left as a means of communication. I love you and admire you and treasure every memory we have!

Holding you all in my thoughts and prayers.


The Wind on The Downs

“I like to think of you as brown and tall,
As strong and living as you used to be,
In khaki tunic, Sam Brown belt and all,
And standing there and laughing down at me.
Because they tell me, dear, that you are dead,
Because I can no longer see your face,
You have not died, it is not true, instead
You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe;
I hear you laughing as you used to do,
Yet loving all the things I think of you;
And knowing you are happy, should I grieve?
You follow and are watchful where I go.”

(Written by Marian Allen during World War l )

Two lines that I wish you to keep near your heart…….

“You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe”


I did not know Dewayne, but I am remembering
his service and sacrifice. He is my hero. !

The Other Side

i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side.

can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i'm not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

it's good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs...the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it's good here on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth...all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side

the world is smaller than a needle's eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i'll be waiting on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth ... all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

Dear Family of Pvt. Dewaye L. White,

We want to say thank you. We understand that no words can be adequate for your sorrow. We certainly do not want to intrude upon your privacy. As Americans we want you to know that we deeply appreciate the ultimate sacrifice your loved one has made for all of us. We also would like for you to be aware that with this letter comes our special concern and prayers for you. We are all safer because young men and women who love their country, and know the value of a free nation, are willing to put themselves in harms way, and lay down their lives to keep this nation free and safe for all of us.
Your sacrifice is also very great. We know that we can give little comfort; however, the knowledge that your loved one did not die in vain, but died in the service of our country, gives each of us a noble example of the value of life, and the responsibility of freedom. We hope this will bring pride and comfort to you.
We at Gethsemane Church believe that there is purpose to life. We send this letter with our deepest appreciation for the greatest of sacrifices, you and your loved one have given to this country. We know it is not enough, but please allow us to assure you that your loved one is not forgotten.


Very Sincerely

Frank G. Noyes

Dewayne,
Just wanted you to know that your mom and your wife have expemplified what a Proverbs 31 woman is. It has been through the fire and pain of losing you that our family has responded with God's grace and poise and simple thankfullness for the blessing of you. Please, know that even in your death you have brought honor to us all. I am proud to say I was related to and even knew you. You touched so many. I read this page often and say a silent prayer for you. Hugs and kisses

I see your car drive down the street everyday on cicero at 8:30am. With the Tennesse Plates, Where you going? I am basically saying thank You, because I understand that you never left me, You always with me and beside me and you were probably going where i was going. I miss you so much. It has not hit me yet, because i dont think your gone. I believe that your still out there lost and someone is going to find you. I know u think i am crazy but if the tables were turned you would think the same. I love you so so much and i think about you every second of the day... i think about how different things would be... and how better things would be...you know what i still cant believe it. Well I am going to try to visit you. I promise i just feel like i dont have the stregnth but im going to try. I love you my sweet brother. I love you so much.... always Ke ke.

P.s Jaida Stood up!!!

I did not know Dewayne or his family but I would like to say I am sorry for your loss of a wonderful man. I would like to honor Dewayne and his family for his fight for our freedom. He gave his life for all of us to remain free, he is special and so is his family. I know this want bring him back but hopefully it will help to know he is greatly appreciated.
June 02, 2008
Dewayne, This is my second time to write to you, but I don't want you to forget that you are thanked and highey honored by me and my family. We never got to meet you or anyone in your family but you all are very special for your ultimate sacrifice. You gave your life for people that you did not know, Jesus gave his life for people he did know. We were all on his mind when he hung on the cross. But, thank God he did rise again! You have found that out by now, for the ones that doubt, you could tell them.... Thanks again!
May 31, 2008
DeWayne, you saw what AMAZING memorial that they made of you. I could not beleive it. The celebration in your honor was GREAT, you deserve it. It finally hit me when I went to your grave site, you are really gone. I kept thinking you were still out there defending what you believed in and making those precious kids smile with your lavashing sense of humor. . . just like your dad. Honey, I know that you are in a better place. I now really realize how short life is and I wished that we would have had many times spent as a family because we love you. I always dreamed of one day surprising your dad by having you and Shayun come visit but life was taken from you. I am so sorry that I am bitter but I know that I will come to really understand. We all miss you and I will see you some day. See ya for now, with much love Renee'
May 31, 2008
RIP DeWayne

i will always miss you
you were the best big brother anyone could have
i remember when i was younger when nobody would let me play you would always include me no matter how bad i was at the game.
also when i would cry you would always pick me up

i will miss you im glad we all got a chance to see you one last time last summer and i will never forget that.
you were a solider i know it was your job
but you loved what you did even though it cost you great
so early and so young you are my hero.

i love you
your lil sis

DeWayne,
Memorial Day now has a different meaning for me. I NEVER return to the cemetery after a funeral. When the burial is taking place, I don't always get out of the car because it is just too sad. So I put on my brave front and went with your mom to your site. She has done a wonderful job of decorating for our soldier. Not only do we have your burial site but we also have a beautiful memorial in Country Club Hills' City Hall. Dude, they lit an eternal flame for you! Wow DeWayne it is awesome. I am so proud of you. I hated reliving some moments but it's okay. I saw the Tusk. Airforce Men flying over just for you and it looked like you were flying to our Lord. I'm ok now. I'll always miss and love you but I can now release you and move on because you are with Jesus.
Loving you always,
Auntie Linda
May 27, 2008
My brother. I love You all day I thought of you. I Realized today that memorial day is more than kickin it and being with friends its honoring those that fought for our country. Well I am happy to be your sister because, you have made history. I wish you were here. I miss you so much. Everytime the house phone rings and the "00" comes on the caller id. I think its you. because when you were in Iraq you use to call. and thats the numbers that came up. but when I pick up and its not you just some bill collector. I get upset like you played a joke. LOL. I love you...And wish this was a dream...You are my hero. Walk behind me my big brother and watch over this family as you can see we need you... tell grandma and grandpa I miss them tooo! muah. xoxo

To the family of Pvt. Dewayne L. White, My thoughts are with you and i know how proud you all must be of this man. But remember he was trained well and was taught everything he needed to know. And now he has gotten his promotion and is fighting as a solder in the army of the Lord

April 01, 2008
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

I sit and I think about all of the memories I have of you and I cant help but smile. I miss you so much, and even now, months later, it is still difficult. While we didnt talk as often as we used to, i still considered you a good friend. I still remember the last time I saw you when you came home like it was yesterday, Heck i remember when we met at Citgo/Counsins Subs, seems like so long ago now. I could always count on you to make me laugh...lol. THank you for that, thank you for listening, thank you for being there, and thank you for risking and giving your life for our country. You have paid the ultimate price. i remember the day you left for the army, and while I knew that being in the army meant you were risking your life, I never imagined that I (and everyone else who knew you) would ever have to actually say goodbye. I know that you are watching over everyone now, and that you are in a better place. But I miss you, and this is my only way of venting. You will always be missed and never forgotten. You were a great man!
January 09, 2008

Sometimes I see you and sometimes I dont. I wonder if you are around because you have something to tell me. I wonder if you are with me because it was one more thing you had to say to me. Well, I prayed on it and I dont have to wonder any more. You are watching me, making sure i make the right decisons and trust me I am. I Love you forever and i hope what you see i am doing with my life makes you happy. I feel that it is. I feel that as long as i am happy and you know that you can rest. I just wanted to say that because i always feel your spirit sometimes it scares me because i am a very scary person but sometimes i need it because its you thats either telling me i am proud of you or. "ke ke you bet not do that" Well only me and you know what i am talking about and i dont mind keeping it that way..I love you with all my heart. Trust, me you will never be forgotten.I think i say your name about 3 times more than i have ever said it. Thank You, for my gift.

Your sister,

I did not know DeWayne, but I am wiping away tears as I read what a fine young man he was, and what a huge loss his passing is for his family, his friends, and for his country. I just wanted to say thank you - Thank you, DeWayne, for your service to our country. My children thank you for engaging the enemy over there, so they don't come over here. Your bravery and your sacrifice will never be forgotten. Greater love hath no man than this: than he lay down his life for his friends. And thank you to his family, for sharing him with the rest of us, and ultimately giving him up (till you catch up with him in heaven) for us. May the peace that passes all understanding fill your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus, and may God hold you in the palm of His hand through the pain of this temporary separation.

You always think you have time to do the small and simple things in life as a father and mentor and in passing these little things become the most important things in life. I will always remember the little things you did to make me smile. My life will never be the same, but I'm so happy that you were and will always remain a part of my life. Syneca, My son was happy and you gave him so much joy and happiness.... I seen this in his eyes when he talked about you. No father could ask for more from a daughter. I love you just as much and I hope I will be apart of your life as he was of yours. DeWayne, I love you so much, I'm bitter, I'm angry and I understand. Thank you so much for enriching my life.

Special Tribute to a Man of Honor

DeWayne you earned the Honor of a Servant and the Honor of a Sacrificial Vessel. You served our Heavenly Father and the United States of America with great integrity. Your attitude exemplified love, peace, joy, and righteousness (completeness in the Kingdom of God). You put your life on the line for others. You realized everything in life is not always about you, but inclusive of others around you.

You are a Type of Christ. One who served with dignity, never doing something that would disgrace our Heavenly Father. You served with a heart of love and spirit of humility. You were forever obedient to the commands of your leader. You suffered, died, and now have resurrected to a level of kingship with our Heavenly Father. “Every knee shall (absolutely) bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord!” Love you DeWayne
December 27, 2007
Thank You for serving our country. God bless you and I hope your smiling up in heaven upon us.

My love my Gift from our Father from heaven,MY SON. Today is Christmas Day Jesus's Birtday. I will always remember before we open up our gifts on Christmas day we would sing happy birthday day to Jesus, you asked "Ma why do we get the gifts and not Jesus? I said he did, He gave his life for us and that was the greatest gift any one could give. I won't get that special call from you this Christmas-but.. God gave me a wonderful and blessed gift for only a minute (like your cousin Danny said) I will miss your talks when you called on my long way home from a hards day work at PMI-I will miss the days you sneak up on me when you come for a vist from Tenne-(warn me when you come now)(smile)and I will miss your laughter. I will miss you talking with DeShaun and NeKita. I can go on and on. Like my father told me before he left this world- and now I will tell you THANK YOU FOR BEING MY SON THANK YOU FOR THE SHORT BUT LONG VIST WE HAD TOGETHER THANK YOU FOR BEING THE BEST OF THE BEST. AND I THANK YOU NOW FOR WATCHING OVER ALL THAT HAS TOUCH YOUR HEART WITH THEIR LOVE.
LOVE Momma

December 25, 2007
To the family of Pvt White:

May the God of our salvation continue to bless and comfort you. God's Word says "...when you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned, the flames will not set you ablaze...." As the old hymn says, "the darkest hour is just before the dawn, but joy comes in the morning". God WILL restore your joy and give you the peace that surpasses all understanding!

We can NEVER question God, because God alone knows what lies beyond the bend. God alone sets the appointment with death, because He is the "...giver and taker of life..." God is God from the foundations of the earth! Our God is God!

I love you in Christ,

Dewayne I can still see your smile, the same smile as when you were 9. I am so glad to have been able to spend time with you and the rest of the White bunch in our family reunion this summer. We will always keep those great memories of our last time spent. I still remember your grand entrance and someone made the comment "Boy that boy is something else; you can tell that he is his father's son." Your dad and I were so proud of you and Shaun when we heard that you both went into the Army. Even though we feared that you both could be sent to fight the war we knew that this was something that you both believed in and we were behind you both. I am so confused and angry and I just pray that you lay your hands on us and let us know that all will be okay. I believe that I will see you again so I won't say good-bye I will say see ya for now. Love always Reneé

My cousin, DeWayne. We didn't get enough time together.. but greater days await us. I'll C-Ya. Your home going, as I'm sure you know, was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I've ever witnessed. The whole town came out! Every fire house we passed on our way to the grave site had firemen standing at attention outside! We passed like four fire houses. What a sight! You are truly deserving of every honor bestowed!!! I'll miss you, sir. Your family, Aaron.

DeWayne L. White was the nephew that will always have a place in my heart. As his uncle James, I can say his life and service to the arm forces shall not go in vain. On a broader scale, his motivation in serving his country is one that should not go unnoticed. I will always remember how he would be so willing to work with me on any project I had going on around the house. He was always interested in learning something new. To DeWayne, this meant getting an opportunity to build a stronger relationship. Fare-Ye-Well my nephew until we meet again.

My heart goes out to you at this time and in the days ahead.

My Dear Cousin,
I hurt because I took your presence for granted. You and I have the same blood that ran through our veins. I wish I had been closer to you, had more memories of you. But you have taught me the best lesson, you never know what you have until it is gone. Now your valiant presence is no longer here and I have missed the chance to fellowship with you as my cousin. What a privilege that I let slip from my grasp. But I have learned my hard lesson through heartache. I will no longer take my family for granted. All the extended family on the Moore side, I reach my hand to you. I want to embrace you. And to the special angel who taught me this lesson, DeWayne, rest well my love. Your presence is still near through all that you touch. I will pray for your wife as only one soldiers wife can for another soldier's wife. Be blessed, be peace, be the angel God has called you to be. Another mission accomplished for you. Love you always,

With the deepest regret, I have just learned of the death of Private White. As a Vietnam Veteran and the State Chaplain of the Georgia Society, Sons Of The American Revolution, I speak for our President, Charlie A. Newcomer, III and the more than 1,400 SAR members around the State of Georgia in humbly expressing the condolences of a grateful Society. Wrapped in the integrity of service to our nation and the inestimable values of duty, honor and country, your American hero stood on a wall of freedom for us all. This precious life, lived and lost in love of America, epitomized every attribute of patriotism the Sons Of The American Revolution hold dear. And, as Americans, we could never repay the debt we owe ..!! Nor the debt we owe you… the family of one of America's best ...!!!

My prayers are with this family in their time of bereavement. I had the pleasure of meeting Dewayne at their wedding! What a pleasure and an honor...I told Syneca...She got a good one...he had such a warm presence and spirit! Syneca and family be strong and know that He is Still GOD...he his in the business of healing hearts..and giving PEACE when your heart is broken. We do not understand, but Dewayne had a purpose and only for a minute did we have him here, but he touched so many...and one that I know he touched was Syneca! May God keep each of you, and may he wrap you in his arms when no one is around, and give you peace! I will continue to pray and lift this family up in prayer!

Precious Nephew,
When you were born, I was there. What a joyful day. You were my first nephew. I saw your precious head before your mother did! Ha!
I still can't believe this. I am so very proud of you. Thank you DeWayne for loving our country enough to give your life fighting in this war. My heart will ALWAYS hurt for you. You were just beginning to really enjoy your life. This is so sad. I'm glad that you are with Mama and Daddy and all of our loved ones that went ahead of you.
For one brief moment I truly thought I saw you leaping off the plane. This hurts so much. I prayed so much for you and DeShaun. Believing God's protective hedge was surrounding you. I don't understand. I'll turn this over to the Lord and go to grief counseling. I am very angry. Take care my precious nephew. Job well done, good and faithful servant.
Loving you always...Auntie Linda

Dear DeWayne:

Wow! I'm so proud of you. I remember when my first "auntie" assignment was to babysit you and your little brother and sister. I hope I was a good example to you in life. Thank you, DeWayne for protecting the United States. "No Weapon Formed Against Me Shall Prosper!." I'll miss asking you to draw something for one of my job projects. To hear you laugh as I explain that it's due in 24 hours, always made me laugh. However, you will always finish the project on time! Well, Wayne-O, that's just one story out of one-gazillion. Again, THANK YOU for your Brave Soul. I'll Keep the FAITH! Peace and Chicken Grease! :) (tears) Auntie Pam Ireland

Father we entrust our brother Dewayne to your mercy. You loved him greatly in this life: now that he is freed from all its cares, give him happiness and peace forever. Welcome him now into paradise where there will be no more sorrow, no more weeping or pain, but only peace and joy with Jesus your Son, and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
May God hold Dewayne in the palm of His hand. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. My deepest sympathy.

There is nothing that I can say or do to take away the pain or bring you peace in your time of sorrow, but I will offer you and your family my heart felt condolences. I also offer you my prayers that in time the pain will easy and the memories of your HERO will carry you through each day and night. I want to thank your HERO, for his/her selfless act of becoming a member of the armed forces, his/her willingness to defend the United States of America, all that we hold sacred and for the sacrifice that will forever be etched in the memories of all those who knew him/her. Though tears can never bring him/her back, we hope that our tears express our gratitude for the sacrifice that he/she made and our sorrow at his/her passing. I believe for every fallen HERO there is a star shining brightly up above to remind us of the precious gift we were given.

Your mission on earth is complete and you are now a member of GOD’s Heavenly armed forces. Stand down brave warrior and take your rightful place in Heaven with all the HEROES who have passed before.

I made a special promise to LE RON A. WILSON, a dear family friend who joined the Army with three other friends, one of whom is my son (Le Ron was killed in action on 07/06/07 at the age of 18) on the day he was laid to rest as I touched his coffin, that I would never forget him nor would I forget those that gave their lives for our country before him, with him and after him and so when I came across www.legacy.com, I thought what a great way to keep my promise to Le Ron, so I will continue to leave tributes in each guest book until the day there is no longer the need to leave these tributes to a FALLEN HERO.

REST IN PEACE, HERO, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!

I would also like to tell you about a website, http://groups.msn.com/SSPSoldierPor
traits/homepage,
where some wonderful people will make wood portraits of your fallen Hero for free for the immediate family. I became aware of this site when I wanted to do something special for Le Ron’s mother.

Dear Family, I wish to tell you I know your sorrow and pain. My son was KIA on May 19th 2007 in Baghdad. You are not alone, many good people are praying for your comfort and peace. I was told about your son's death by my son's buddy, SPC Robert Curry from 1-327th and he asked me to pray for you. Your sons' Army brothers and sisters feel the pain of Dewaynes' loss too. I pray you find comfort and peace.
God Bless

I can't even find the words...I lost my 19 year old son--5 Sept 2007, Balad, Iraq. I am absolutely devastated and I know that you are too...but find comfort in the fact that we will see our loved ones, our heroes again. Do I wish that I could trade places with my son? ABSOLUTELY not. He is in the arms of our Lord--"And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away" ~Rev 21:4
What a wonderful thought...

To the Family and Friends of this Soldier:
I will stand in grief with this soldier's family to honor him. For every fallen HERO there is a bright star that shines in the evening sky to remind us of the cherished gift we were given – even if for too short a time.
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courageous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guestbook for the rest of my life, but I promised Brent that neither he nor any like him would be forgotten and so I will continue until the day there is no longer the need.
We lost our son SFC Brent A. Adams on 12/1/05 and it seems like yesterday. I wish so badly there were things I could say to you right now to make the pain you are feeling go away, but I know first hand there simply are no words that will bring you the comfort and peace your heart aches for. Just know that you are not alone. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you all as you go through this tragedy moment by moment and as you mourn this loss.
We don't know each other, will probably never meet, but will forever be united in the loss of our Heroes. We have, unfortunately joined a group none of us wanted to join, an ever-growing group of families in this situation. May God grant you peace and strength to get through this and be able once again to smile at a memory rather than have only the tears that flow so easily now. To be so proud of your loved one and so saddened at the same time is a mix of emotions very difficult to deal with as our hearts both burst with pride and pain together.
I am sorry that I never knew your soldier personally. While they can never be replaced, neither will they ever be forgotten. You must trust that sometime, someday the loving memories you have will help to sustain you and help you go on. This courageous soldier will forever be your Angel watching over you all for the rest of your lives. It's what brings me some measure of peace and comfort and I hope it will you as well.
To his family and friends in pain, I offer this comfort: When you find yourself in that dark sorrowful place, think not only of how you will miss him, but instead recall the years, days, hours and minutes gifted to you by his presence. The one thing that cannot be taken from you is your wonderful memories that now will mean more than ever.
If you ever want to talk, I'm only an e:mail away and would love for you to tell me more about your Hero.
God Bless this soldier and family who gave all and God Bless legacy.com for setting up this site where families can so quickly share their condolences and prayers with others like themselves.
