Visitations, funerals scheduled for Chardon victims Demetrius Hewlin and Russell King Jr.

CHARDON, Ohio - Mourners can pay tribute to another Chardon victim Monday.

Demetrius Hewlin's visitation is Monday afternoon from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. 

This comes after all of northeast Ohio is still trying to heal. Last  weekend, churches around the region offered comfort to worshipers.

"In a time of crisis, personal crisis or a crisis that affects the whole community I think people really need to gather closer to the lord," said Chris McCreight, minister of Pilgrim Christian Church in Chardon.

Demetrius Hewlin's funeral is Tuesday morning at the Church of Saint Mary.

Last week's shooting also left two other boys dead. Visitation for Russell King Jr. will be held on Wednesday.  It will be from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Burr Funeral Home. His funeral will be on Thursday at 10 a.m. at the Church of Saint Mary.

The first victim to die, Danny Parmertor, was laid to rest Saturday. Thousands of people stood outside the church linking hands. They were there to block a possible protest by the Westboro Church but the protestors never showed up.

Four young ones also did something to remember the victims. Over the weekend, they braved the cold to sell ribbons. Cars lined up and stopped all weekend on Wetzel Avenue in Cleveland.

They said they will also come back Monday. The ribbons go for 50 cents a piece and all the money goes to the Chardon Healing fund.
