Celebrating the life of Devin Bailey

When Great Trees Fall

When great trees fall,
rocks on distant hills shudder,
lions hunker down
in tall grasses,
and even elephants
lumber after safety.

When great trees fall
in forests,
small things recoil into silence,
their senses
eroded beyond fear.

When great souls die,
the air around us becomes
light, rare, sterile.
We breathe, briefly.
Our eyes, briefly,
see with
a hurtful clarity.
Our memory, suddenly sharpened,

gnaws on kind words


promised walks

never taken.

Great souls die and

our reality, bound to

them, takes leave of us.

Our souls,

dependent upon their

now shrink, wizened.

Our minds, formed

and informed by their

fall away.

We are not so much maddened

as reduced to the unutterable ignorance
dark, cold


And when great souls die,

after a period peace blooms,

slowly and always

irregularly. Spaces fill

with a kind of

soothing electric vibration.

Our senses, restored, never

to be the same, whisper to us.
They existed. They existed.

We can be. Be and be

better. For they existed.
― Maya Angelou

You may be gone from here, this place, earth, my sight. But never from my thoughts, my memories, or my heart. Never. You are proof that someone can be going through so much yet still always choose to be so loving and kind. I pray that you’re granted the peace and rest you deserve. Until I see you and that million dollar smile again nephew, watch over us all.

Saying gone to soon is truly an understatement after being blessed by the light and love of Devin Bailey♥️ At a time when the world turned its back on me, you embraced me, you showered me with kindness, friendship, laughter, and array of memories I will forever cherish. You made so many of my darkest days shine the brightest with your goofy personality and your positive outlook on life; I will never be able to describe how extremely and eternally grateful I am to have known such a remarkable human being like you. When I think of a truly good person, you’re right there. My brother, my family, my friend—I will always say a prayer for you until we meet again! 💜✨ Long live Devin Bailey 💜

Devin, thank you for always being a brother to me. From the time you literally saved me in a car accident, to picking up every call whenever I needed you. You were love and light but greatest of all you were a protector to all of us. Everything is everything! ☯️ Devie Beyond

This has hit so hard because you were such a bright light that I guess we all thought you’d be here forever! You gave me grief about washing up dishes, studying after school and the endless debates but you were so lovable that it was hard to stay mad at you! You were so full of energy and couldn’t sit still but I saw your quiet moments too. Heaven has gained a special angel. Love you always, Devin!

Dev, I'm sorry I laughed at all that wild "Don King" hair you had when you were born. I was just jealous, wishing I could have full, thick, gorgeous hair. I'm sorry I locked you in the car when you were a baby, but remember, you did love the cool fireman who helped get you out. I'm sorry I got way loud when you thought calling 911 when I was in the shower was a good idea. It was probably super fun to see all the policemen at the door. I'm sorry I made you chase down Sadie when you left the door open and she escaped. She was fast, but you were definitely faster. I'm sorry I didn't want you to eat the Cheetos that you dropped on the ground. I know Cheetos are delicious and you didn't care because a lil' dirt don't hurt nobody. I'm sorry I didn't know which type of dinosaur growl you were making. Dinosaurs are awesome, and I should have known.

I'm sorry I didn't see you more than I did. I'm sorry I didn't hug you more than I did. I'm sorry I didn't tell you how much I love you more. How much I admire you. How talented, how special, and how uniquely you, you are.

There won't be a day that I forget. Your smile. Your laugh. You.

Thank you for being in my world. Until we meet again, kid.

I love you.

Devin, you are gone way too soon. We don’t get to always know GOD’s plan, but it is clear he wanted you back. This photo today reminds of the day your father told me that Katina was pregnant. Rest well young man!
