“Lyric Isabella Woods, 14, tragically passed away on Sunday September 18, 2022. Lyric loved life and loved volleyball. She was an angel. Lyric was funniest kid you could ever meet, she loved cracking jokes and being with her friends. She loved her eye lash curler and above all else she loved her Nike Air Jordans. Lyric was a beautiful soul on the inside and out. She is loved more than anyone will ever know. She never met a stranger and was loved by everyone. Her laugh and her glow would brighten any room. She was not gonna be seen without her eyelashes looking good, lip-gloss on and smelling so good of Bath and Body Works. Lyric is survived by her mom Elizabeth Cannada and stepfather Shane Cannada of Efland; Father, Brady Woods and stepmother Jennifer Woods of Gibsonville.

Devin’s aunt, Adriana Bowe remembered him in a Facebook post as a loved and “very smart young man.”
