KNOWLIN-SHROPSHIRE, DeWayne R.

On January 2, 1986, a bundle of joy was born to Kimberly Jill Knowlin and Jerome Anthony Shropshire. Our beloved son, DeWayne Rashawn Knowlin-Shropshire, 18, lovingly known as "Weezie", departed this life to meet his Heavenly Father on Wednesday, (January 14, 2004), at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center. DeWayne was raised in Hartford/Bloomfield, attended both Hartford and Bloomfield public schools. He was currently a senior at Bloomfield High School. He was known for his outgoing and fun-loving personality. He loved sports, hip-hop music and art. He was very special to so many people. A stranger he never met: peaceful, loving, caring and sharing were his "special" attributes. DeWayne will be truly missed because he was loved dearly. He leaves to cherish his memory his sisters, Amber Reid-Shropshire and Tiffany Shropshire, both of Bloomfield; his maternal grandmother, Jessie Mae Knowlin and grandfather, Clarence "Smiley" Smalls of Hartford; his paternal grandparents, Bobbie and Gladys Shropshire, Sr. of Bloomfield; uncles, Leroy, Michael and Ernest Knowlin, Ernest Williams, Rudolph Collins, Travis Johnson, Jesse Grant, Bobbie Shropshire, Jr., Darryl Barnett and Christopher Shropshire; aunts, Etta Hemmingway, Deborah, Shiela and Markeda Knowlin, Veronica, Wendy and Jackie Williams, Angela Shropshire, Kimberly Shropshire, Marilyn Barnett and Adrena Shropshire. He also leaves behind two special people in his life, Curtis Jones and Elizabeth Reid; a host of cousins, other relatives and friends. He was predeceased by his maternal grandfather, Ernest Witt, uncles, Vander Knowlin and Benjamin Grant. The care of our beloved child has been entrusted to the Henry L. Fuqua Funeral Services at 94 Granby Street, Bloomfield. The calling hour will be on Thursday, January 22, from 10-11 a.m. The funeral service will begin at 11 a.m. Interment will be in Mountain View Cemetery, Bloomfield. We, the family, ask that you keep your fond memories of DeWayne close to your heart. Contributions may be made in memory of DeWayne Knowlin-Shropshire in care of Greater Hartford NAACP Back To School/Stay In School Program, P.O. Box 1012, Hartford, CT 06143.

What's up DeWayne man! Still on my brain and always will be. To think we go back before anybody knew to call you Weezy. Riding on the bus in elementary school going on field trips. Then even in highschool when I got my first car us (you, me & AJ) leaving early just 'cause we could do that. I love you always! You got two beautiful nieces out here boy! You're missed dearly.

Whatup big cuz? i know you watchin over all of us. I miss you so much. I wish you were still here with us. Some people just don't understand how it is to lose someone close to you until it happens. We weren't the closes of cousins but we spoke when we saw each other and I started seeing you like we should see each other. Oh my gosh you don't know how much I really do miss and love you.
That's it for now because I'm in school and I don't wanna get emotional here.


I love you always Big Cuz

Hi Weezy,
When I heard about what happened all I could do was cry and I started missing you right then and there. Weezy we didn't have that many memories together but the time that we did share was some of the best times in my life. All that I can basically say right now is that you are truely missed by many people and you will always be loved. Weezy watch over all of us who love and care for you and help guide us through our troubles, and I know that you are in a better place just chillin as always.

But I know you got the message because when i woke up yesterday i said happy birthday weezy. Thats crazy cause you and CoCo's birthday is on the same day. I know you already know my birthday is coming up and when the candles of my cake are lite i want you to make a wish then i will make a wish after. Weezy you know i love you so much and miss you too. So just keep in mind that i will always be thinking about you and staring at those 4 pictures of you including the hat with your picture on it on my wall.

Hey DeWayne, I know everyone is writing what up Weezy, but I want to talk to the real you. The you that I knew when we were 4 and 5 years old. Man I miss you so much and as I sit here at this computer in college I want to cry because I still hurt. I'll never forget the days you, me and AJ would leave school early and ride around which was almost everyday. I knew you since daycare days and I must admit you were one of a kind. Remember we went on a field trip with BELC and you sat in the back of the bus and started singing a song by Kris Kros and then the next thing the whole bus was singing even the adult chaperones. I guess that goes to show that you had a great influence on people even then. Again I want to say I miss you and you were like my brother, but you know that already! I love you and please look down on me every once in a while. You will always be in my heart. Love your other sis, Brandi

Hey Weezie,
Its been a while since I have been on here but don't think that I forgot about you. I was just at your grave the other day, it was so hard to go and have to visit you that way. All I could remember was how we use to argue about how you would always say when we grew up that you were going to move in with me. I would do anything to have all that back even the days that we claimed we weren't brother and sister. Even though we were arguing we knew that we could always depend on one another. I have to get use to the fact that I just can't pick up the phone and tell you something or just burge into the basement to bother you all the time. But you know that I talk to every free minute of my day. But remember that I love you ok.
HELP ME GET THRER AND GUIDE ME.
Love For Ever More

Dewayne, often I drift back to the day before you died when you and I sat in your room discussing your future in the music business, your schooling, job and your priorities. We laughed at the spelling and grammar mistakes you made in your essay, you vowing to tighten up the ship. In my wildest dream, I never imaged that it would be the last time that you and I would spend together like that.

I will miss walking into grandma's kitchen, you with one side of your hair braided up and the other flying in the wind. Most often, you would give me a hug, letting me know that you loved me. There were very few times that I did not inquire about your whereabout, "where's Dwayne?". Now, my heart aches whenever I see you image on someone clothing, look into your room, which no longer resemble the room with your many pictures taped or tacked to the wall. Whenever I see you image, I get a tightness in my chest and tear well up in my eyes, still finding it hard to believe that you are no longer physically with us. They say that life goes on, however, the pain of loosing you still is strong.

When I encounter people wearing your image, I would inquire, "did you know Dewayne" and they would reply, yes, he was my friend. You left so many people who truly loved and are missing you.

One of the things that I would like for people to know is that you had your priorities straight. You and I discussed your college plans, me giving your funding source information. Your plans to get a job so that you could afford a car to take you to your job and school. You were very excited! I remember you saying, "but uncle I don't have much job experience. I responded, "Dewayne, you are smart and the things that most employers are looking for in a young man your age is your desire and willingness to work, which you possess both. There was never a time that I thought for a minute that I question you competency. You were just beginning to spead you wings.

I know that GOD has taken you into HIS kingdom and is taking very good care of you. Tell Uncle Benji and Uncle Vander I said hello, and that I love and think of them often.

If you get a chance, stop by and see me sometimes.

Love,

Uncle Bubba

Hey Weezie
I miss you so much. The situation still doesn't seem real to me. It's still way to fresh for me to handle i miss the days you would be in the basement chillin and I would bother you and all you would say is come on man. Weezie I miss you so much, but I am glad that you will be able to watch with me and guide me through all my struggles. The other day Daddy and me was in the car listening to the rap tape you made it felt so good to just hear your voice and I felt as if you were right in the car with us laughing at the things you were saying. But you know that I love you dearly even though we argued all the time but that made our relationship fun because after all that's what brothers and sisters do. All I can say now is DeWayne please stay with me at all times in spirit and soul.
Love Always,
Your Little Sister,
Amber

You know that saying "you never know how much you love someone until they're gone" Well now I know. We have so many memories from when we were little and from our teenage years. I know how much you cared about me and never showed it, and I did the same thing. I remember when people used to think we were brother and sister, because we looked so much alike. But we never thought we looked alike. But yesterday when I had on some fake carties, I realized that I did look like you. Weezy I miss you so much, and I wish you were still here. I can't believe you're gone, eleven days after your birthday, why you? I will always keep you in my heart and I will never forget you. You were like the big brother I never had.R.I.P Dewayne Rashawn Knowlin

Weezy, I known you for some years now and we had are days when we didnt get along but we still was cool. I never thought that I wouldnt see you again. We shared alot of memories that I will never forget. It makes me sad to know that there will be no more memories like the ones before. When you departed you left a lot of broken hearts.You had alot of R.I.P's to the people who died before you on your wall and I would never think you would be one of them.Even though its sad, Im gone walk around with your picture on my hoodie so that you wont be forgotten.Rest In Peace.

Times come when we hurt , but some say pain is love and never will it comfort us the actual way we want it to. being visual yes is something to cherish but to be incognito of worries sorrow and pain is greatness. blood is thicker than water and family love is like no other, my love for you runs so fluently never runs dry. memories of you continue to shed tears in my eyes of you non-stop, but i try to stay strong , we will always be strong as one strong as a whole. slowly turning a similar like me we could never be stopped in our tracks but our mind so elevated we got through toughly, thoroughly, completely. sleep my love in a sleep so deep rest for me i'm also tired of pain too. not jealous of where your at my content of how much your relaxed but i wish you were here. watch over me protect me love me.

WEEZY,you touch so many hearts to the point no one could have thougt this day would come.No one knew what to do if we cry it was cuz we miss you.if we laugth it was cuz we were thinking of all the fun we had with you.you always made everyone happy when you smile.And when you died it made everyone mad so mad that it was so hard to say goodbye. We weren't ready 2 let you go.But now you are lookin after us.Writing this is making me sad cuz i never got to say bye but when i saw you resting i cryed so much.but the last time i saw you we were at the mall and the last words i told you were 2" be safe and stay out of trouble".And your last words were "be EZ you know i will.tell them boys stop messing with you and let you breath lil'one.~*WEEZY I LOVE YOU*~ love always,~*MELLA*~

We have heard about and all we can say or do is to let you know that your love one is with God and he is doing better than we are. He does not put no more on us than we can handle. J.Lorraine Tutler

It with a very heavy heart that I express my deepest sympathy to you. Mere words are never enough to comfort such a loss. So please know that my prayers are with you all. God is very triumphant and he will see you through this. May the many precious memories and all the love and joy that he leaves in your hearts bring you much comfort and strength in the coming days.

I love you all.

To the Knowlin & Shropshire Family

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God has laid you see.
I took His hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found that peace at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now; He set me free.

To Bobby & Adrena, I know that sometimes saying your sorry to someone when they have lost someone doesn't feel like enough. But what is enough is knowing after they say that, that they are there for you. Even though I have only known you both for just a year, I know that when it comes to your family, you are all very close. And that is what will get you through this. Please just remember, all of us are always wondering if there are angels, or if there is a big gate you go through when you get to heaven. You wonder if you see people that have died before you. You wonder if you can look down on people from heaven and keep an eye on them. Well, we don't know. We still have so many question. But DeWayne has all the answers now. Try to remember that. It has always helped me. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. God Bless.

Found this quote & thought it quite appropiate:
"The Oak Tree"
A mighty wind blew night and day.
It stole the oak tree's leaves away,
Then snapped its boughs and pulled its bark
Until the oak was tired and stark.
But still the oak tree held its ground
While other trees fell all around.
The weary wind gave up and spoke,
"How can you still be standing, Oak?"
The oak tree said, "I know that you can break each branch of mine in two, carry every leaf away, shake my limbs, and make me sway.
But I have roots stretched in the earth, growing stronger since my birth.
You'll never touch them, for you see, they are the deepest part of me.
Until today, I wasn't sure of just how much I could endure.
But now I've found, with thanks to you, I'm stronger than I ever knew."

Thinking and praying for all who knew him..Each day from now on will be totally new, but the heart carries the love & memories forever...God Bless..............

Hello to all. First off, I never got the chance to meet Dawayne in person. But I met his sister Amber a year and a half ago and fell in love with her. And with that alone the loss of DaWayne effects my life also. From the little that I did know of Dawayne I know that he didnt deserve to leave this Earth so suddenly the way he did. I just want to send my prayers to his entire family and to the many friends that he has. May God comfort you all in this time of grief.

Part of Our Hearts Forever

Could we ever forget your sparkling eyes or the way you brightened each day, or your smile which is etched in our memories, so you're never far away?

Could we ever forget those priceless moments? The answer, of course, is never.

For you were a part or our lives for a brief time, but you'll be part of our hearts forever.

The last times we spent was New Years Eve on your porch lighting fireworks, We will never forget that night and we will never forget you. Peace be upon you.

Jah Bless.................

Psalms 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He Maketh me lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the path of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou Preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Dwayne may the lord gently wrap you in his loving arms and keep you forever.

You will be missed dearly by all. We love you and we will never forget your kind and loving ways.

May the lord bless the family and rememeber we loved him but god loved him best.
