Vaughn I think about you everyday dog. I just can’t believe it man. I can’t believe it still hurts just like the first day. I don’t know what to do. You were the strong one out of all of us and I wish I would have told you more often, but I love you and I know you know that. You the man dog and I feel your with me all the time. No matter what everyone else thought you always gave people the benefit of a doubt and never doubted me or anyone. I’m glad I met you and got to be GC Fam with you. I don’t even know why I’m cryin right now because I know you up there, but you meant so much to me nigga. We all had our Birthdays in April, now I feel so empty. I can’t stop cryin man. I can’t. I feel like just screeming, why you man. Not you Decaughn. No one will ever know how much you meant to me but me. People don’t just understand. I look at old pictures and even when I walk around the house there are nothing but memories. I can’t even visit your grave and I’m so close. I’m not the same man. I’ll never be the same. Just come talk to me, console me my nigga, Thats what you would have done if you were here. I gotta go. love you man. You Know who

I’m sorry for what happened to Devaughn Darling. During the time of his death, my school was doing a report where a wrestler died the same way Devaughn did. It was weird how his death coinsided with my schools report. I’m a junior at Edison High School. I planned on going to Florida State once i got to college. Again, my heart goes out to Devaughn and his family. Also, his family gets my respect as well.

I did not know Devaughn but I do know God. For all of those who are mourning, don’t worry because God wanted Devaughn to come home and believe me he’s not sad. Losing a loved one is hard. Sometimes you just don’t understand and you don’t feel that you should live. I know all about it. In the word of God it says ” Be of good courage and he shall strengthen your heart.” God will do just what he said. I was looking at this website and it just brought tears to my eyes. But I know that Devaughn is looking down and wants no one to mourn or be saddened by his death. Just BE STRONG and know that God will see you through everytime.

Devaughn Darling how is it down there? Hope it is fine. Well the day i heard you died i layed in bed crying all night. You were a great part of the team and a part of me. I miss you Devaughn Darling. Wish you were hear to begin this season. My hope, prayers and luck to the Darling family.

I love flordia state and it was sad to hear that this young man passed away, doing a thing he had a passion for. He had such a bright future ahead of him and will be cheering from flordia from above.

Brent Stubbs, Nassau, Bahamas.
I was deeply hurt and shocked to hear of the untimely death of Devaughn. As a journalist here in the Bahamas where he and his brother, Devard were born, we felt the hurt just as much as you did in Tallahasseee. Obviously, it’s going to take a whole lot to console Devard and his family, but we want to encourage them that “earth has no sorrow that heaven can’t cure.”
At sometime in all of our lives, we have to face the tradey of death, but it’s how one deal with it.
Devaughn, we will certainly miss you, but Devard, we know that Devaughn would want you to go on and carry the legacy that you both started at FSU. Our prayers are with you and may God continue to sustain you in all of your endeavours. God bless you.
