You were a friend to all. You always made me look on the brighter side of things. I didn't know you had cancer until junior year but it never seemed to bother you. You were a strong guy. I wish I was strong like you.

Aloha Peggy & Britt:

I was deeply saddened to hear of Derrick's passing today. I remember him as a baby. It's hard to believe that so much time has passed.

I am forever grateful for the support & love that you extended to the Wynn family when Dad passed. I am now hopeful that you will find the same sort of compassion as you navigate this loss.

Memories can never be lost. May they sustain you.

With my condolences,

Miss Tara M. H. Wynn

My prayers and sympathy go out to your family at this time of sorrow. I know what it is like to lose a child. You never think that your children will leave this earth before you, but God has other plans for him.

Blessing to your family.

We loved how Derrick was always such a focused and determined boy and young man. He loved the outdoors and was always enthusiastic about camping and outdoor activities. Because he was such a hard worker, he was able to catch up in rank, on his own initiative, to the boys a year older than he was. Derrick, we will miss the smile you always had on your face. God be with Britt, Peggy, Caitlin and Michelle. You are in our constant prayers and the prayers of more people than you can imagine.
