Ms. Ferguson,I know you are very sad today and I pray the Lord gives you his peace and grace. You had asked us to light a candle for D today, I lite 3 all day and Chardon was on my mind all day. What I did want you to know, my sister drove back to her home in Willoughby tonight and she reported that all along Rt.20 people had candles in their windows. There were many porch lights on too. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you and the families of the other students. God grant you comfort at this tragic time.

Happy Birthday to Demetrius and his family, especially his dear mother. God's blessings be on all of you. A candle to light the way. I, too, have had much sadness in my life....lost loved ones way too young. We know not God's ways, yet we know God is for us and with us. I, too, forgive. And I thank God for the time I did have with them. Thank you, dear Jesus, for this young man's life! Pray for us, D, those left behind.

My Prayers are with your family at this difficult time. I was a student at Chardon High in the late 60's. And I dearly miss my home town. Im 62 with health issues so here I have to stay. But this hurt so deep and my thoughts and prayers are with all those that this tragedy has effected. My church out here a Calvary Chapel has been praying for me and all of you there in Chardon for I hurt so deep.. My brother still lives in Chardon and drives a school bus there. I still have my year books too and I hold them dear to my heart and always will. Jesus Loves YOU From Deborah Vyse a long distance sister in Christ.

My prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. I don't know you or your son, but when hearing about this tradgey it tore me apart. I have two daughters and could not imagine life without them. So Icannot begin to tell you I know how you feel because I don't. But I do want to say is that God will not put no more on you than you can bare. Be strong and seek God for he is a merciful God and he will see you through this difficult time. God makes no mistakes and now Demetrius is sitting with God happy and would not trade places.

Dear Ms. Ferguson and Family,I had the pleasure of teaching Demetrius in 7th grade at Chardon Middle School. I have since moved away, but I distinctly remember Demetrius, and I was devastated to find out of his passing. He was a wonderful young man, and I am so lucky to have known him. I will continue to pray for you and your family- now and always.

May the LORD bless you with His peace during this time of loss for your family. I thank the LORD that Demetrius lived his life with you and was so very dearly loved. I'm sure he brought joy into your lives. I'll be lighting a candle here in Cleveland on his birthday. Thank you for Demetrius--because of him, I've been hugging my own son every day. May he rest in peace and may you continue to celebrate his life and memory. Be Blessed!

To the family of Demetrius...We send our condolences to you. Your willingness to share your grief with the world is a part of the process of beginning to heal from such a tragic loss of a fine young man who was such a giving individual. The silence that you experience may be deafening, but God will be with you. Our friend, Cyndi, wrote a poem a few months after her mother passed, and we hope that this poem will help you during your time of grief. God Bless You!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Psalm of SilenceBy Cyndi WeinmannMay 20, 2010 I can hear the wistful, mournful song of the dove who perches there in the tree, so solitary and somber. My ears capture the cheerful chatter of the robin as he gloats over his brood.The sparrow still sings that melodic tune that I have cherished since my childhood, Yet the silence surrounding me is deafening. The world has gone right on spinning, just as I knew that it would do.The bright sun continues to send its glowing rays to dance across my window sill,And soft May breezes tease the wispy curtain and frolic with the leaves on the basswoods and maples, Yet the silence surrounding me is deafening. Even if ominous clouds would roll in like crashing waves upon the ocean,And thunder would rumble as boulders crashing down a mountainside,Though lightning would tear through the blackness of night like some ancient mourner ripping his garments, Even then, the silence surrounding me would be deafening. I miss hearing the ringing of the telephone and her beloved voice on the other end of the line.No longer do I hear the cheerful greetings when I enter the doors of my childhood home,Nor do its familiar walls echo with jubilant laughter or cheerful songs.Yes, the silence surrounding me is deafening. It’s not that faith has escaped the grasp of my clinging fingers. I still firmly hold to the One who embraces me, as well as my tears. I know that my Father’s grip is firm and steady, despite my wavering emotions,He never releases His grasp, especially on days like today, When the silence surrounding me is deafening. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: A time to be born and a time to die….a time to weep and time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance…a time speak and a time to be silent…” Ecclesiastes 3:2, 4, 7

Our sympanthy is with you. We also lost a son to an accidental shooting by his best friend. Next month it will be 9 years since we lost him. We still think of him and miss him every day. With God's help we have gotten through it. We also formed a group with another set of parents that had lost 2 children. We had no professionals, just a group of parents who missed and loved their child. We just got together once a week to talk, and of course we had each other's phone numbers if they needed to talk anytime. My husband talked to Bob Palmentor and he has our phone number if you would like to contact us. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.Ray & Cathy Tucker Alliance, Ohio

To sister Phyllis let God truly guide your heart to real forgiveness for it is not selective.. remember what you told D every morning about forgiveness.(Mark 11:25) And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.(Mark 11:26) But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.To brotherTimothy Hewlin stand strong sir your love and support for your son canot be erased and is recorded in heaven a record that will never be ignored... I am praying for you both that the love that bore Demetrius will prevail.

I never met Demetrius, but, after reading and hearing about him, he was a Stand Up Kind of young man. Donating time to others is a remarkable thing. His working for Habitat For Humanity shows he truly cares about more than just his immediate circle. The world will be a less giving place without his kind spirit in it. God bless you Demetrius.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see,If the sun should rise and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me,I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today,While thinking of the many things we didn't get to say.I know how much you love me, as much as I love you,And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too.But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand.And said my place was ready in Heaven far above,And that I'd have to leave behind, all those things I dearly love.But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye,For all my life, I'd always thought, I didn't want to die.I had so much to live for, so much yet to do,It seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you.I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad,I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.If I could relive yesterday, just even for a while,I'd say goodbye and kiss you, and maybe see you smile.But then I fully realized, that could never be,For emptiness and memories, would take the place of me.And when I thought of worldly things, I might miss come tomorrow,I thought of you, and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow.But when I walked through Heaven's gates, I felt so much at home.When God looked down and smiled at me, from his great golden throne.He said, "This is eternity, and all I've promised you.Today your life on Earth is past, and here it starts anew"."I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last,And since each day's the same day, there's no longing for the past"."But you have been so faithful, so trusting and so true,Though there were times you did some things, you know you shouldn't do"."But you have been forgiven, and now at last you're free,So won't you take my hand now and share My life with Me".So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart,For every time you think of me, I'm right here in your heart.

Touched by 2 Angels posted on 3/5/12

Demetrius was truly the child who’s mother is an angel on this earth. She raised a beautiful, kind, compassionate, respectful young man who contributed so much to all the lives he touched. His mother Phyllis knew and embraced the importance and value of family that even she touched everyone she came in contact with. Even complete strangers, one whom she became a pillar of strength for that she met on the street while walking her dog. Phyllis shared her deep love and understanding for family, especially the importance of being in our child’s lives with this stranger. Phyllis became a light of hope for this person and a friendship was forged. She shared her life with Demetrius and how proud she was of him and that children are “on loan” from God.Phyllis opened her home to this new friend who was a victim of domestic violence and gave this person the safety of letting them watch their child at football camp that was taking place behind her home at The Chardon High School. Phyllis opened her home & backyard as a safe haven for this parent to watch their child play football. This helped give a loving parent the ability to enjoy watching their child play football and avoid further exposure to volatile situations. Phyllis explained the importance of our children in our lives and that you never know when they could be taken from you and to love them every chance you get and to ALWAYS tell them how much you love them. Every single day – you tell them you love them and give them a hug. We love you how you touched us Demetrius and Phyllis!

He is in God's arms now, and we ask that his mother and family be comforted by God's healing words and spirit. May he live on in each of our hearts, and in those lives he so selflessly contributed to through organ donation. God's blessings to his family, and all the families of Chardon who mourn his death. God's peace, Demetrius. Ann Failinger

What a remarkable young man he must have been. He had thought about helping others in his departure from life. What a thoughtful and considerate young man was he. What an example to set for others his age. Demetrius was an angel who was here for a short time, but he has touched other lives forever.His mother is an incredible person too. It explains why he turned out to be so incredible. God Bless you Ms. Ferguson, your divinity shows. May you walk in the presence of GOD always.

I was born and raised in Ohio and now live in Texas. But I was heartbroken to hear that something like this had happened close to where I grew up. My heart goes out to your and all the other families and you entire community that has been affected by this tragedy. You will always have the memories of your handsome and loving son in your heart forever. I listened to you on the news the other day describing your son and you could tell that you loved him very much and he was a typical teenager. His donation of his organs will give life to others who otherwise would not have that chance. You should be very proud of him. Just know that he arrived safely in the arms of God and he will always be looking down on you. I will say a special prayer for all of the young men who lost their lives. God bless you and your family.

You all continue to be in my prayers as you are forced to live on without your son, brother and grandson. May it bring comfort to you knowing that others will live on BECAUSE of your son, brother and grandson and that D will never know pain again as he is now spending eternity with the one who gave him those organs in the first place. May you feel the comfort of God's arms through your family and friends as Demetrius feels them personally. Again, i am so very, very sorry for your loss.

WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME When Tomorrow Starts without me, and I’m not there to see, if the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me; I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today while thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you and each time that you think of me I know you’ll miss me too, but when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand and said my place was ready in heaven far above and that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away a tear fell from my eye for all my life I’d always thought I didn’t want to die. I had so much to live for so much yet to do, it seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad. I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had. If I could relive yesterday, just even for a while I’d say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized that this could never be for emptiness and memories would take the place of me. And when I thought of worldly things I might miss come tomorrow, I thought of you and when I did my heart was filled with sorrow But when I walked through heavens gates I felt so much at home. When God looked down and smiled at me from his great golden throne he said “this is eternity and all I’ve promised you” Today for life on earth is past but here it starts anew. I promise no tomorrow but today will always last and since each day’s the same day there’s no longing for the past but you have been so faithful, so trusting and so true, though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn’t do. But you have been forgiven and now at last you’re free so won’t you take my hand and share my life with me?So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart for every time you think of me, I’m right here in your heart. Angels don’t always have wings Author Unknown

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family now and always. Your son is in the loving arms of GOD and HIS angels now and forever. Please take comfort in that. We are so sorry for the loss of your son Demetrius.

I think it is just wonderful that Demetrius had the presence of mind to sign his drivers license as an organ donor. Who knew what would happen. I am a member of a donor family also, and this is such an important thing to do. I am so sorry that Demetrius' family has lost him. But as the organ recipients live on, this will bring comfort, I promise you, Demetrius' family. Thank you all so much for stopping to serve your fellow man in this time of great sorrow.

As the mother of two sons, I mourn with you; I cannot even imagine the loss you are experiencing right now. But as the mother of a son who received a donor kidney almost 5 years ago, please know that Demetrius is not gone. He gives life everyday to eight other people. Demetrius and your family are our heroes. Please accept my sincere thanks for being the kind of parents that had the strength to do this and for raising a son like Demetrius. My thoughts go with you during this difficult time.

"He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces." Isaiah 25:8In times like these it it so hard to know what to say and how to say it. I can't say "I know how you feel," because I don't. I just know that my heart is filled with sadness over a young man--whom I did not know--whose life was taken too early.Hold on tight to his memories, cling close to each other for support. The Lord of God will keep your and sustain. May the love and peace of God comfort you duing this time of great sadness.

After reading some of the messages I just felt the I should set the record straight. Phyllis and I love Demetrius with all our hearts and always will. We are so proud of his decision to donate life. Don't forget to hug your children and tell them you love them every day.

Mr. & Mrs. Ferguson,This tragedy has really brought home the fact that life is short, everyday is precious it and it can all change in an instant. The loss of your son has deeply affected and saddened more people than you know. I did not know your son but he was obviously a kind & thoughtful young man. This is obvious by the fact that he volunteered and by his thoughtful gesture in being an organ donator and giving the gift of life to 8 others. Your strength and grace is amazing and your composure and faith really touched our hearts. Although I have never met you, it is also obvious to me that you have a loving heart and Demetrius was lucky to have such a wonderful mom. I watched the interview and wanted to say that even though you said you didn't tell him you loved him that morning when he was late, I feel in my heart that he knew that you loved him, of that I have no doubt. My youngest son is not a morning person either, like D he too is always late, no matter what it always seems to work out that way. When we were watching your statement to the media and you said that, my son came and gave me hug, and said "even when I'm grumpy in the morning and mad at you I still love you mom". I think alot of people are going to take your words to heart and make sure they show their kids daily how much they are loved. We are sorry for your loss and are praying for you and your family and we will light a candle March 8 for Demetrius's birthday. God bless you and your family. RIP Demetrius. Sincerely, Christine Rea and family

Parents, family and friends, My Prayers and my heart goes out to you. I am so sorry for your loss. May you heal as time goes by.I was given this poam when my husband passed away in 2009, I always keep this poem in mind and it does help. May you find Peace in knowing that one day you will reunite with your loved one. Demetrious C. Hewlin, May you Rest In Peace with the Lord.MY DEAREST FRIENDS AND FAMILYTo My dearest friends and family, something I would like to say... but first of all to let you know, I have arrived okay. I am 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 am 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 far as 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 but to- flight. God and I are close 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 I could tell you all that god has planned. But if I were to tell you, you would not understand. But one thing is for certain, through my life on earth is over. I am closer to you now, then I ever was before.There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills 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 someone who is 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 passes along the way, I made somebody smile.So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,just lend a hand and pick him up, as on your way to go. When you are 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 with me.

 

Lola Peoples posted on 3/1/12

He's with GOD now and I know he is looking down at you and saying "Thank You and He Loves You All"....

I am sending you a message of thanks at the courage of your son to become an organ donor. Our daughter was 10 years old and became sick with a flu virus and then needed a heart transplant. I did not know your son, but know that he is a wonderful example for all of us to care about each other. Our daughter is now 20 years old and goes to many schools spreading the word about organ donation. Even though we sometimes don't understand what this world holds for us, we do know that God is now smiling with your son and that God will walk with you in the coming weeks to comfort you and your family. May God bless you all!

There will never be any sense made of this terrible tragedy. The school, Chardon, Ohio and America is poorer now for not having Demetrius with us to demonstrate the many gifts he had to share with so many. My thoughts and prayers are with Demetrius' family and extended family.Eternal rest grant unto his soul oh Lord. May the perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. May he rest in peace, Amen.

I don't know your family, but mourn with the nation over the loss of your precious Demetrius. Lifting you up in prayer.

On behalf of the Davis family, our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of bereavement. There are no words to express our sincere sorrow when when a child or a love one is taken. Truly, our heart goes out to you and your family. Only God, in time, can heal the wounds from your loss. We pray that God will comfort you and wrap you in His loving arms to give you the peace that surpasseth all understanding. Anthony, Antoinette and Andrew Davis.

As the father of three boys, I cannot possibly imagine the pain of losing a child and although words are not nearly enough to convey how heartbreaking this must be, rest assured that now Demetrius knows no more pain, no more suffering, no more fear and that he has donned his white robes and golden slippers and is tucked safely in the tender loving care of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

May you take comfort in knowing that Demetrius is in God's loving hands and that the tears and thoughts and prayers of many, many people are being sent your way.

I took my daughter, Lauren, to school.. that very same day... and the absolute sadness, remorse and terror I felt when I heard about yet another school shooting, just racked my soul. My child attends James W. Martin High School in Arlington, Texas. You, your Son, or my family have never met... but I just gotta express that I have prayed steadfastly ... for God to somehow ... salvage your lives... your faith... and your futures... as you recover from this horrible mess. May our Eternal Father, with the assistance of His Son, Jesus... somehow.. clean up this mess. In Jesus' most precious name... Jesus Christ of Nazereth.. I pray... Amen!:( Scott Vernon Feb 29, 2012 Arlington, TX

I did not know Demetrius; however, as a former teacher, I have to say that I would like to have had hiim as atudent in my class. It is obvious that he came from parents that set an example of loving and caring for others. On behalf of all those out there who are awaiting transplants , thank you for your allowing Demetrius's organs to be donated. His death is not in vain now.Through the coming weeks and months, know that many people are keeping you in their thoughts and prayers. It is going to be truly a difficult time. May Our Heavenly Father bless each and every one of you with the strength and comfort you will need and may you turn to each other to make an even stronger family unit at this time. He will be missed but not forgotten.
