The kids and I have been thinking about you so much lately...every day the boys bring up a memory of you as if you have just stepped out for a bit. I know you watch over all of us daily we miss you always but never forget you. As it comes close to a year ..which seems like a blink of an eye...just know we love you still. Sleep with the angels.

This picture matches my most special memory of all time with my best biggest cousin ever Derek you were truly the best biggest cousin I could ask for. I remember I wasn’t gonna go to prom and you said why not I told him well I’m a loner Derek I don’t really talk to boys like that also I don’t have a ride to prom either at the time my mom had no car. He said nope your going. He told me he never got to go to his prom and he would like to experience it with me if I let him. I say yes so he planned it out and even asked his mom my most lovely aunt penny to let him drive me in her car to prom she was so happy that he wanted to go with me so on this day so many thought ran through my head as a young woman he made it even more special he told me when we got to the location of prom he said Cyndelle let’s not tell no one I’m your big cousin let’s just have a wonderful time I say ok. So I went along with this so we did he had a blast I had everyone asking me who that, he is cute, give me his number. My come back was he isn’t available !!!! And just left them wondering lol! Love you so much Derek had tears in my eyes writing this!!!

There’s so many things that I can say about you. You are an amazing Big brother. Your presence and energy could light up a room. You were someone that everyone wanted to be around all the time. When we were younger we would always play a game that you made up. You called it spider lol. You would always make me be it. Or you would make me watch you play video games all day because I would get so into them when you would play, and I would get so upset when you would lose lol. There would be times when I didn’t want to watch you and you would tell me it was more fun when I would sit there and watch you play I love those memories. I miss you so much brother and I will forever have you in my heart until we meet again I love you.

You will forever be loved and missed. I remember the first time our eyes met I can never explain with words how much I knew something was different about you babe. You were so adventurous and so full of life and love for everyone and everything. No one can ever replace you...I miss hearing you call me "lover", but I know you are in a better place without the pain and suffering of this cruel world...may you rest peacefully my husband...
Love Always, Your Wife, Soulmate,

I remember a little boy dressed in a suit and mens hat bringing my little girl a wrist corsage for her birthday. The theme was to come dressed as a grown-up. This is how I want to always remember him, before life came along in the grown up world. Terri Fletcher
