We would like to express our deepest sympathy and words of comfort to you and your family. You should be so proud of Demetrius. He was loved by many and he gave his love to many by donating his time and himself to others. May God continue to bless and comfort you.
March 06, 2012
March 06, 2012
God bless you and your family, young sweet soul.
March 06, 2012
We are so sorry for your loss. As his mother you have a beautiful forgiving spirit. I know God is proud of you. I am sure your son, Demetrius was as wonderful a son as you are as his mother. I am sure your son is playing football with his other two friends in heaven. May God continue to bless you and your family.
March 06, 2012
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Your graciousness and words of forgiveness in the face of such a senseless crime and tragedy are why your son was such a remarkable young man. While I never saw Demetrius personally, I saw you and how you carried yourself. May you also find comfort in knowing how important that is. When Jesus was on the earth he said at John 14:9 - "He that has seen me, has seen the Father also." Jesus could say that because his Father taught him everything and when he was sent to the earth, Jesus was only interested in doing his Father's will. They weren't the same person, but the same in thoughts and deeds. May knowing that you fulfilled your God-given responsibility by leading by example and showing a heart full of forgiveness, help to give you a measure of comfort as you grieve and miss your handsome boy.
March 05, 2012
Your family and Demetrius will be in our prayers, we will have a candle burning in our home for Demetrius on his birthday.

Dear Hewlin Family,
My family and I are deeply sorry for the loss of your son. We personally do not know your family but have been thinking and praying for you. There are no words that can change what happened but please know that many people are praying for the family in this trying time. God sometimes has plans for us that may be difficult to understand or make us ask why. But know that your beautiful boy is now an angel looking down on your family. Life is precious and this has made me definately realize to hold my children closer as we don't know what tomorrow brings.
God bless you.
March 03, 2012
What an honorable young man the community has lost, and yet he will live on through the lives of those his gifts will touch by giving them the gift of life. His life was too short, and his death all to senseless. As moms, all of our hearts break with yours. We will remember your words though--to hug our kids every day regardless of how they feel, even when they're mad at us, they'll get over it...I will never forget your words. May God bless you and your family.
March 03, 2012

I do pray that God helps you cope each moment of each day.

For the parents of Danny, Russell and Demetrius
As a parent my heart aches for you and your family. Just the thought of what you're going through seems unbearable. I'm sure what I've written below doesn't begin to explain what you're feeling, but the words moved me, as if I had a little bit of understanding.

One More Minute

... One moment in time, is all that it took
When the world around me suddenly shook

An hour or a minute is all it would take
To change what had happened shortly after he'd wake

If only he stayed home or was tardy that day,
Dropped a pen on the floor, and was out of the way

If I hugged him longer or asked him to stay
If I dropped to my knees and started to pray

One minute with him was a life filled with love
I'm not ready to accept that he's in heaven above

The pain and the sorrow is more than I knew
That a parent like me could ever go through

Dear God hold my baby and please hold him tight; and
Give me the courage and strength to get through this night

By Laura Hegedus, Eastlake OH

Death is Nothing At All

Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away to the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other,
That, we still are.

Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the easy way
which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effect.
Without the trace of a shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same that it ever was.
There is absolute unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?

I am but waiting for you.
For an interval.
Somewhere. Very near.
Just around the corner.

All is well.

Dear Ms. Hewlin,
There is nothing that I can say to remove the wrenching pain of Demetrius's senseless passing. I watched you on television today as you shared memories of your son. What a lucky young man to have had such a strong, wonderfully thoughtful, caring and down-to-earth mother. Your essence became contagious and he donated his organs. Not only is he giving the gift of life to others, he is uniting a world of people who are suffering his loss by embracing you. Having had a near-death experience, I'd like to share that he must have had one too - better than mine. He found himself in a place where the weight of the world was lifted, felt no pain, gloried in a most exquisite and all-encompasing sense of peace, love and the freeing absence of the contraints of time and place. That is where my experience ended as I reluctantly returned to this physical world. I selfishly yearned to remain in this place that had bathed me with light and the promise of the realm of grace. My heart reaches out to you during this awful tansitional time as I turn to my right, hug you and say that you are loved.
March 01, 2012
May the promise of eternal life give peace and strength to the loving family.
God Bless all of you.
I'm a mother who knows how you feel about this senseless tradgedy.
March 01, 2012
May your memories of this wonderful young man help you through this difficult time. God be with you and hold you in the palm of his hand.

Our Family is praying for you during this difficult time.

The strength and courage you exude is inspiring to my soul. You remind me of my mother when we lost our beloved oldest brother, her first born. The stoicism and grace coming from your faith is the same our mother displayed. Individuals like yourself and my mother are truly a blessing. You have my profound and sincere condolences. May your son Demetrius rest in peace. I know he was a fine young man with a mother such as you guiding him.
March 01, 2012
GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONE'S..REST IN PEACE..

I have a son name Demetrius also. I am sending my prayers to the parents, siblings and other family members of "D". To bury a child, is one of the worst things a parent could go through. I am experiencing that now. But for your child to leave this earth in the manner in which he did is so sad. I ask that God give all of you the strength to deal with this the best way that you know how. Nothing can fill this void that is left, but I hope it helps to know that others are thinking of you and praying for you. May God continue to be with all of you.
March 01, 2012
Words cannot even begin to express how sorry I am for your loss. My prayers will continually be with you and your family. May your minds, hearts and spirits be saturated with the peace of God.

You have all been in our prayers and will remain there in the days..months..years to come. We pray your faith, along with the prayers of all who love you; and the hundreds of prayers of those whom you will never meet, will help carry you through your grief journey.

--When you have come to the edge of all that you know
and are about to step out into the darkness
Faith is knowing one of two things will happen--
There will be something solid to stand on, or
You will be taught to fly--

Even though I don't know you, my heart goes out to the family of such a young soul taken too soon, Demetrius. I can't begin to imagine the pain you are going through but want you to know that you have friends, family, strangers and a community praying for you and asking for God's blessing to be bestowed upon you. Thanks to Demetrius, several people will be saved and able to go on in life, even though such a young, promising life was taken so tragically and so soon. God Bless all of you during this most difficult time.

To The Hewlin Family
My heart felt condolences go out to the entire family on this most tragic loss of such a promising young man may the God of all comfort and tender mercies be with you in your time of grief. James 4:8

I personally did not Demetrius; but I have shown I care for his family who have to deal with his loss. It was so tragic to hear this news. Being a teenager it's hard to believe that 3 teenagers had their lives taken from them when they didn't deserve it. He did not get to live his life, because it was taken too early. Every time I hear about this I want to cry. I send my prayers to you and your family. Our nation has came together to show how much we care. North all wears chardon's colors. We are here to support you. Once again so sorry for your loss.

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.
