Brother, today marks one year since we knew you had left us to be in a better place. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you, miss you, want to wrap my arms around you to feel the warmth of your hug, and just to see your smile and hear your deep laughter. More than anything, I want to tell you "I Love You," in person, but instead I light a candle for you each night, asking you to watch over us and to know know how much you are Missed. You are in the Hearts of SO Many, Des...and I Promise, you will be Alive in our Hearts Forever. Till we meet again, Keep Close, continue to show your Signs, and Feel our Everlasting Love and Positive Light. You are Eternally in Peace, and for that we are all Grateful.

You were a "Great Guy!" Here I am "Posting" the last message on your Guest Book!!!! There may never again (eternity) be another message added here! I was there honoring you, 11-2012! You are a great cousin and we sure had a great time back on Christmas Eve 1996! That's when we (Devin included) ran that train in the basement! You sure are missed!

You touched my life in so many ways when we were young. I never realized how much you affected my life but you taught me how to love others with all your heart. You showed me what love was. You always loved hard and you were such a passionate person. I am that way today because of you. The memories you gave me I still look back on all the time. Thank you so much for those des. The times we spent I hold close to my heart. I can only hope your pain is gone and you're at peace. Rest in paradise. My heart goes out to your whole family.

Jessica and family...I wish I had taken the time to know Desmond better, but know he was loved by you all which is good enough for me. I hope that he has found peace and truly hope that the hurt that we all feel will someday be easier to tolerate. I love you all. Marko
