By  | 

PARIS, TX -- Oklahoma City Thunder star, Kevin Durant, has reached out to Texas A&M Commerce, sending his condolences after their tragic loss.

21-year-old Devin Oliver and 20-year-old Aubree Butts were killed in a crash last week in Paris.

Oliver's favorite player was Durant, so her brother started #KevinForDevin on social media.

Durant then posted this message on Facebook:
"Enjoy paradise. Nothing but love coming from this side. Sending my condolences to the family of Devin Oliver."

Oliver's funeral is scheduled for 11 AM on June 14th at Mount Hebron Baptist Church in Garland.

Butts' service was held Saturday in Lewisville.
