My Dear Derick my heart has been broken since I learned of your passing.  I am still mourning the loss of your Father and now you.  You were too young and all I can do now is pray and hope that God has great plans for you.
I remember the first time I met you in Boston you were 1 and what a cutie you were, you were fast and mischievous but the real fun started when you were 2 years old and you and your parents moved to VA and lived with us for a bit.  There was never a dull moment with you in the house it was constant laughter because we always were entertained by you, we had so many good memories, from the lawn mower, the vicks, the chocolate hand, you always opening the house door and running just to mention a few.    You were so mischievous but at the same time so loving you had the biggest heart.  At times we did not know if your name was Derick or Pa Pao and then years later we all moved to FL.  I had the honor to watch you grow into the amazing son that any parents can ask for and the best brother to your younger brothers. Unfortunately when your Dad got sick you had to grow up a lot faster to help but you never ever complained you were your mother and Fathers rock.  You loved your brothers and your parents so much.  I was always at awe of what a great man you had grown to be, and always so humble.  We were so proud of you when you decided to join the Military and even when we talked I know you knew how much we loved you and how proud we were of you.  
The great memories of you are endless and they will forever remain in my heart.  You are greatly missed and loved by all.  May you rest in peace.

Derick was my cousin and he will always be. He was a kind and honorable gentleman, who loved his family dearly. And even-though he’s no longer with us, I know he’s next to God watching over us.

“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”

Dear Derrick I remember I think it was in Orlando I was 9 maybe 10. We played call of duty nobody could ever beat you. I miss you so much and wish you were still here with us, Rest in peace and maybe we all might see you someday. The last time I saw you it was your birthday and I never got a picture with you because I recently got this phone. So sad to see you gone so early .❤

My dearest Derrick,
Oh Young Man you will be missed. It's hard to believe you are not here with us. I still remember the moment I met you. Just a little kid full of boundless energy and funny. Always trying to karate chop or kick me in your house in Va. Years later who would've thought that that little guy would be towering over me one day and get his black belt in martial arts. As time went on you were becoming a young man and had to make decisions of where you wanted to do after HS. I remember talking with you about schools and different careers but you mentioned the medical field was your thing not the tech field like your dad. I was very impressed with your choice and what you wanted to do. I told you no matter what you do your Dad and Mom would be proud of you. As time went on you choose to join the U.S. Air Force and followed in your Family's Military Service.
Very proud of you are your entire family. I will surely miss you my little not so little karate Kid.
I know you are hanging with your Old Man, so give him a hug for me. And till we meet again.
Love you Uri

Derick “my niño chiquitico” that is the nick name I had for you and you use to give me the most beautiful smile every time I called you my niño chiquitico. Even though you are a grown man, to me you had the purest innocence in your heart. I will always cherish the moments we spent together forever. It brings me comfort that you are with your dad now and that we will meet again. Thank you for giving the privilege of been your Tia Karin. And for you dad mi hermano, mi mejor amigo, mi compañero de juegos, mi defensor, mi consejero me hacen mucha falta los dos y los mantendre vivos en mi corazon.

Jamás me imaginé que a una edad tan temprana dejarías este mundo y que sería tan difícil aceptarlo y que mi hermana, tus hermanos y todos nosotros tu familia tendríamos que despedirnos de ti. Mi querido sobrino aunque por cosas de la vida nuestra relación haya sido ligera eso no me impidió quererles y tenerles siempre en mis oraciones, sé que serás un ángel, siempre mantendré la esperanza de verte otra vez.
Nunca será fácil decir el último adiós y más si fuiste una persona tan valiosa en la vida de tu familia en especial tu madre y hermanos. La partida nunca será un evento común y corriente pero Dios nos da el consuelo y la esperanza. Fuiste una excelente persona en vida, siempre ejemplar en todo lo que hiciste y orgullo para tus padres y un héroe para tus hermanos y toda tu familia y amigos, eso nos dejas como legado.
Tú que en esta tierra fuiste amor bondad y dulzura descansa en paz al lado del PapaDios y tu padre. ♥️🙏

Tu recuerdo vivirá en nuestro corazón siempre.
Con amor
Tu tía Cesarina Fermin-LLeras y Diosmari Fermin

Querida Joha
Se que no hay consuelo cuando se trata de la pérdida de un hijo, pero ahora tienes un Ángel en el cielo de Dios que te acompañará por siempre. No me atrevo a decir que entiendo tu dolor, pero mis oraciones están contigo y mis sobrinos en este momento tan triste, para ofrecerles todo mi consuelo, mi afecto y mi amor de hermana, y tía, estoy segura que Dios tiene un lugar muy especial para él junto a su padre. ♥️🙏

I never imagined that at such a young age you would leave this world and that it would be so difficult to accept it and that my sister, your brothers and all of us your family would have to say goodbye to you. My dear nephew, although because of things in life our relationship has been light, that did not prevent me from loving you and always having you in my prayers, I know that you are now an angel, and I will always hope to see you again.
It will never be easy to say the last goodbye and more if you were such a valuable person in the life of your family, especially your mother and brothers. The departure will never be an ordinary event but God gives us comfort and hope knowing you are with him. You were an excellent person in life, always exemplary in everything you did and the pride you had for your parents, you are a hero for your brothers and all your family and friends, you leave us with a great legacy.
You who on this earth were love, kindness and sweetness, rest in peace next to the God and your father.
Your memory will live in our hearts forever.♥️🙏
With love
Your aunt Cesarina Fermin-LLeras y Diosmari Fermin

Dear joha
I know there is no consolation when it comes to the loss of a child, but just know you now have an Angel in God's heaven that will accompany you forever. I will not dare to say that I understand your pain, but my prayers are with you and my nephews in this sad moment. I’m offering you all my comfort, my affection and my sisterly love, and as an aunt. I am sure that God has a very special place for him with his father. ♥️🙏
