It was so heart breaking to hear the news this week of loosing such a wonderful young, happy entergetic person. Derek will always be remembered by not only this journey of the fight he fought but of who he was as a person and the impact he had on so many. I pray peace and comfort for everyone from his loving wife, sweet kids, parents, step parents, grand parents, uncles, in laws and the many many friends he had. It has taken Team Derek over the past 11 months and for the months to come the family will need Team Derek still in prayer even more than ever ... My prayers and love Always

Derek, you will be missed by so many, fly high and may you rest in peace. My grandma always said that God picks his prettiest flowers first, I guess he needed you to make his beautiful garden complete.
