Anytime Derek was around I knew some epic Shenanigans were about to go down his soul could light up a room and he always had a huge cheesy smile on his face, I will forever miss our crazy times together but I will never forget them and will always carry him in my heart.

I hate how blurry this picture is but you can still see how hard you were laughing. I remember all the times we would sit at your apartment all night and laugh at how ridiculous each other’s laugh was. That’s something I’ll always cherish and something I’ll always miss, is hearing your crazy laugh. Thank you for taking care of me throughout our friendship and I’ll be forever thankful that I got to do the same for you. Love you, D.
