Will and I meet up at the memorial today. I was planning on being home (20 miles away) for the memorial but I found myself in El Centro CA (290 miles). I'll post some more shots in the morning as I'm really tired.
Devin was a great guy as evidence of the urn his remains were placed in.
Here are a few more shots from the day the street was closed for only those honoring Devin.
The entrance to the parking lot.
Some steel soldiers.
I was very honored to celebrate Devin's life with those who knew him and worked and played with him. I was only able to interact with him on a few DB trips but I think everyone here would have also been proud to have spent time with him and his family and friends.
Besides being a Steel Soldier, he was a devoted father and friend and a true public servant. Devin may not have known it but based on the very limit time I spent at the ceremony, he affected a great number of people.
I received word of Devin's passing while I was with my family celebrating thanksgiving and it really hit home how fragile our existence is and how thankful we all should be, everyday that we have together.
