Dear Friends,
#Team_Devin walks to remember the wonderful life of Devin Laurel Dailey (5/11/1990 - 3/10/2003)!  Devin was a fun-loving little girl that shared many activities with us during her short period on earth who now resides in our hearts until we meet again in heaven.  
Devin loved soccer, dance, swimming, drawing, scrap booking, writing poems, her cat "Shadow Rock Kitty", her Grandma and Grandpa Dailey, her sisters Elissa and Taylor, her Daddy and Mommy, and her friends.   She loved to make us laugh!  She loved to repeat lines from movies, tell silly jokes and make puns on words to make us laugh that would turn into full belly laughs by all that were in her presence.  We love these fun memories of our sweet Devin "Dew"!
One Sunday morning in May 2003, twenty-one years ago now, we went to wake Devin for church, and she wasn't breathing.  We called 911.  We began CPR and mouth to mouth.  They sent paramedics from the Greece Volunteer Ambulance (along with the Greece Fire Department and the Greece Police).  They took Devin via ambulance to Park Ridge Hospital (now Unity).  The Pediatric Team from Strong was called in to Park Ridge who then moved Devin the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Strong (the old old one, it's been rebuilt and moved twice now!).
The paramedics and the doctors were able to stabilized Devin's heart and blood pressure.  However, a ventilator was breathing for her.  We don't know how long Devin was without oxygen.  When a person is deprived of oxygen, their brain swells and dies.  
Devin was a giver during life, always volunteering a pencil to a friend, or her seat to a stranger.  As our Angel was passing from this world to the next, she also shared five (5) of her organs with others in need to help them live longer, happy, healthier lives.  
Please help us remember the wonderful life of Devin Laurel Dailey and support #Team_Devin to benefit the children at the Golisano Children's Hospital at Strong.   Please consider joining "#Team_Devin" and stroll with us this year on Saturday, June 1st, 2024.
