Derek was my best friend of 30+ years. He was a very loyal and giving friend and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.
I will miss you very much and I’m glad I got to know you for this short time on this planet.
Thank you for a lot of great memories and for being a great friend.

Derek was an incredible and gifted person. He would not eat to give a hungry person food; I have personally seen that happen. We laughed, cried, and loved each other. I will miss him more than I can say. I regret that I was not a better big brother and help him even though he did not want it. Love you Derek.
