Sally and family. Words can never express the sorrow I feel for you all. I remember Derek coming to the house with Ashley. Little blonde headed, rambuncious child. I still have a picture of him and Joe turkey hunting. I will send it to you Sally. Once again I am very sorry for your loss. And I will keep your family in my prayers.
