CHARDON, Ohio — Nearly a month after their son’s death, the parents of Danny Parmertor are thanking the community for its support.

Parmertor, 16, was one of three students who was shot and killed inside Chardon High School on Feb. 27, 2012.

On Friday, Bobby and Dina Parmertor released a letter that said:

“On behalf of the Parmertor Family, we would like to thank our family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and the community of northeast Ohio, especially the City of Chardon. We would like to send our heartfelt thanks to all for their kindness, thoughtfulness, and the many prayers that were sent our way following this tragic event.  Our family cannot express the gratitude we feel for all that you have done for our family as we deal with the loss of our beloved Danny.  Without the support of all of you, we don’t know how we could  get through this very difficult time.


Also, we would like to thank the Monreal Funeral Home, the Church of St. Mary, Chardon, and All Souls Cemetery for being so understanding, respectful, and professional in dealing with our loss.  Your kindness and overwhelming support has made a positive impact on our family.


Thank you for allowing us to share Danny with all of you.  He was truly an amazing young man.  May God always watch over the Hilltopper community, and may God bless all of you.”


At Danny Parmertor’s funeral, his friends and family said they will remember him for his personality, wit and laugh.

They described him as the “boy next door” who loved computers.

The student accused of the shooting spree, T.J. Lane, is in juvenile detention facing murder and assault charges.

A bind-over hearing to consider probable cause to move Lane to adult court has been scheduled for April 3.
