dev . my love, i miss you soooo much !! i catch myself all the time just thinking about what you'd say if i were to call you right now with any problem or happy tidbit i happen to carrying around in my life and i will literally sit there and listen , almost as if i can hear you, to your kind words of wisdom or just some moral support to reassure me that im doing the right thing and that im staying on the right path. you were always my life guide, you truly helped steer my decisions on soo many of them that were life altering !! i can whole heartedly say that i would not be in this exact place as this exact person if it weren't for having you in my life in soo many ways. i always felt as though we had several different kinds of relationships, some days you were like my best friend, others you were the apple of my eye and kept love in my life. but no matter how you were contributing to my endeavors it was always 100% genuine! :) Thank You for sharing your life with me in more ways than one !! im eternally grateful to have known you , even if it was for too short of a time. i will always love you and i will never stop missing you !! i hope that i can make you proud and that all of those little conversations that i wished we could've had were exactly what you would've said. you will stay alive in my heart and in the hearts of all of the amazing people that loved you and still carry that love for you with them . :) i love you dev . xoxoxo

I miss you amigo. I’ll never forget our Science class together at NAU. I had remembered in the beginning seeing you in our lab a week earlier and thinking, “wow, this guy is just too cool for me.” And then go figure, one week later we happened to sit next to each other during the lecture hall and you had seen me pull out my phone and saw the background of it with my crazy inbred shih-tzu and you pulled out your phone automatically and showed me your equally pedigree challenged dog. From then on I felt so comfortable around you and I realized I had completely misjudged you. You were so friendly and engaging and I felt connected to you so instantaneously. I really enjoyed our time together. Pushing my scrawny ass to work-out harder at the gym, or ditching class to go play video games. Even after Flagstaff you kept me sane when I was broke and stuck at home. I looked forward to our daily contact even if it was from hundred of miles away... hearing about your job dealing with the crazy people at the nurse home screaming for ice cream, or what random crap you bought through QVC that day, or talking about backpacking Europe or taking a quick trip down to Mexico. I’m sorry that we were never able to do those things. The last time we saw each other was during your layover in Phoenix for maybe twenty minutes. I would have never bothered to go meet someone for such a small increment of time, but it was Devyn Bundy in town, how could I pass up the chance to see Devyn!? And thank god I did… I replay those last simple twenty minutes over and over again, along with all my other memories of you. I keep you in my thoughts constantly, and it hurts, but I never once want to forget you so I take the pain because if it means always having your existence in my life then it is essential. I love you.

Hi Devyn! It's taken me months to write this. It's impossible to understand why someone as wonderful as you left us all so early in life. I want to thank you for welcoming me to Bonanza when I was new to the city. You made me feel special, and I can't say there has ever been someone like you in my life since. I cry every time I visit your page, the emotion is uncontrollable. Although we had long since grown apart, I'm so grateful for my memories of you. Thank you.

Happy Birthday DEV!!! This is not an easy day.........You are so very missed. I feel like I should be able to call you and talk to you. Dev I love you so much, I miss your laugh and all of your little jokes and pranks, there's not a single day that goes by that you are not on my mind. I always wish we could have one last conversation, one more hug, one last laugh. It so hard to think, your not just a phone call away, and I have to be patient and wait. But I look forward to that day again, when I can just wrap my arms around you and tell you how much I love and missed you!! My baby brother, happy birthday. I love you.

I MISS YOU....SOOOOOO MUCH......There are so many changes and things I want to tell you and when I go to reach for my phone I start to dial you and remember that you're gone. In my heart is where you stay and for that I am happy and it brings me much comfort. I miss hearing your voice and your stories of the day and or what is going on with you. I do get to see you ever so often in my dreams. I always look forward to when that happens. I love you and know your in the stars above when I look into the sky.

Hey buddy. I miss you a lot bro. Every now and then you pop up in my head and the good times we always had that made us laugh like crazy and smile. I am doing the corrections deal now and I have gotten a lot of good breaks and managed to get out of some situations safe. It always makes me wonder if you are looking out for me up there. Who knows right. Only you do now. I include you in my prayers every day before going to bed in hopes that you are hearing me and remember that you are never forgotten. Gone but never forgotten buddy. Miss you.

Hey buddy. Every time I catch a lucky break lately I keep thinking you're up there looking out for me! Its never going to be the same without you. I miss you, but I know you've moved on, and you're in no pain. That gives me the greatest comfort. I'll be in touch homes.

Hey Devyn. Well I cant believe its almost summer time and how time is going by. I so wish that we would be able to hang out like we always did. I am glad that I get to see you in my dreams though, they remind me that you are still around. I have gone to see you several times and last week I went with Chie. It was nice to be there with chie and you, we talked and reminisced about you and all the memories we had. Chie told me about a time when you, chie, me, david and chris chilled. You asked Chie,"How did you learn to walk in heels so good, did you practice when you were little?" I started cracking up because that is something you would ask. :) I remember the time you and David called me one night and asked what I was doing and where I was driving? I was like, "what are you talking about?" Then upon returning home Chie and I were talking and you and David came into our house wearing "SCREAM" masks and scared the living poop out of us. Haha, I miss all those fun times. You always made me smile and I just wanted to tell you how much I miss you and think about you all the time. You are missed by so many people. I want to thank you for bringing me and chie back together as friends. You always said that we should be friends, you always had a way of bringing people together and for that I am thankful. I wish I could go back to December when we got to hang out and talk and enjoy eachothers company. Love you and miss you more than words can describe. Love Always and Forever, Jorge :)

Hi Dev. I dreamt about you again last night. But this one was the best because it turned out that you hadn't really died. And you thought I was silly for even believing it in the first place. I wish that was really the case. But at least I still get to see you every night when I go to sleep. I love you so much...

Hey Dev! It has taken me a long time to write. It's impossible for me to understand why someone as special as you is no longer here. The Devyn I knew made the world a better place. You were so kind to me, never in a hurry, and I felt so lucky to know you. People like you are so rare, and I'll never forget how truly beautiful you were. I hope that in some way, you can still continue to be there for the family and friends that depended on you. Perhaps just as important, I hope you are still able to feel how tremendously loved you are. I don't know the story of what happened or why you left, but the only thing that matters now is that you rest in peace. I am thankful for the opportunity to have known you. I hope that your friends and family finish the site and I'm happy I have somewhere to go to remember you. Love always, Sarah.

Devyn...I miss you more than you can imagine. I have yet to have the kind of dream that I want, mostly of you and I hanging out late at night. Talking and laughing and you telling me a complete random story that means absolutely no sense, then I ask you, :what are you talking about?" Then you of course do your unforgettable laugh. "Your so silly!" was always your closing line. I miss you and love you very much. Im glad we got to hang out in december. I will always cherish that. I was reading your text messages to me the other day and they were so touching. Its like you were right next to me talking, you typed how you talked. :) haha. I will be by soon to visit you, Ive already been several times. I feel your presence and you give me signs every day that your near by. The other day, at work, I checked in a couple and they were from Las Cruces. I was like wow, small world...Plus that very same day, I helped a guest and needed his birthday, and guess what it was September 12...;) Anyways I just want you to know that I love you and miss you more than words cant express. I stare up at the stars all the time and wish you could physically be next to me to look at them and talk about our future and how we would be when we are old. Love you;)

I have a poem for you:) I miss the times when you were here telling me to have no fear To hold my head up high and strong add happy notes to my sad song I miss the way you look at me As if I were too blind to see The path I’m on might hurt and scathe But all goes well if you just have faith I miss the sound of your sweet voice Through bitter times a saving noise That told me what was right and wrong But rang in my ears for far too long A caring person, you were such That helped and hurt me, oh so much You’d guide and mislead me through the day You left me lonely when I’d rather you stay Over things like that you had no control A rock set in motion will continue to roll No matter how hard you tug and heave You were always pushed and forced to leave Then one day you never returned My tears so hot they almost burned Aware now about what I lack But crying and mourning wont bring you back For me to let out what I need to say I can’t do much more than pray No longer am I weak, my hearts quite strong From adding a happy chorus to a sad, sad song Source: Gone, Forever, Lonely Poems http://www.familyfriendpoems.com/sad_love/poetry.asp?poem=20692#ixzz1HBiUUsdi

Dev - I remember like it was just yesterday that we were just hannging out eating our favorite meal at the time, Jack's Tacos. We were discussing our relationship pasts, friends, and everything in between. In particular we discussed that when we got older and both got married and had kids that we would always live somewhat near each other and have our family's connected with friendship. It is hard to realize that we won't truly be able to share something similar to that ever. I know that you will be able to look down and check in on me every so often as you always would. It still won't be the same though. Gosh it is so hard to write this still man. I remember that we discussed that if anything ever happened to either of us that we wanted people to gather and remember us for the impact we had on there lives. You got Dev. It was beautiful brother. As soon as I saw it I knew that you were looking down and smiling because it would make you happy to see everyone together again. Just sad it had to be this way. I remember that you told me that if anything ever happened to you that you wanted me to always make sure your family was prtoected and ok. You always were protective. Just know that I will. I still feel guilty that I wasn't there to help you in your time of need. It just brings tears to know that I won't ever see you again man. I remember when we would go paintballing with Brad. I remember all the pranks that we would pull on different people all in good fun of course. I miss our talks. I remember our trips to California. I remember the Zoolander look. We always laughed with that movie. I remember the first day we met in Bonanza cheer. You had to teach me a dance routine. I remember cheer camp. Gosh. I pray for you every night. Just know that someday we will see each other again and I will have a huge amount of stories to share with you. Hopefully a life time full of stories. I would greet you with a hug buddy. Be at peace brother. Your memory lives in all of us. It isn't fairwell. More like see you later. I know you are an angel now brother. Just know that I will always be proud of you.

Dev- There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of you or miss you. Its still hard to even think of you as not being here, not getting to see that smile, or having you there when all six of us can get together. Ill miss all our laughs, talking about "the culdesac", all the times you cooked us dinner from your "own recipe book" and it always tasted sooo good! growing up with you, playing games with you, talking to you about the kiddies, there is so much Ill miss so many things. You are truly an amazing guy, my little brother. I love you so very much.... If tears could build a stairway and thoughts a memory lane I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again No Farewell words were spoken No time to say good-bye You were gone before I knew it And only God knows why. My heart's still active in sadness And secret tears still flow What it meant to lose you No one can ever know. But now I know you want us To mourn for you no more To remember all the happy times Life still has much in store. Since you'll never be forgotten I pledge to you today A hallowed place within my heart Is where you'll always stay. God knows why, with chilling touch, Death gathers those we love so much, And what now seems so strange and dim, Will all be clear, when we meet Him. I Knew you for a Moment if tears could build a stairway
