Dear Britt Family,

It was such an honor and a priviledge getting to know Derrick and his entire family. Derrick was such an inspiration to all of us. He has a very special place in my heart! Please know you all are in my thoughts and prayers.

Derrick, I'm going to miss you so much. I have known you since the 7th grade and you are a great friend to everyone. I would have died in ceramics class this year if it wasn't for you. You are hilarious, kind, and a trustworthly guy that I am going to miss very, very much. I miss hanging out with you. I use to have a great time when I did, though. You are in a better place now. You and your family will always be in my prayers forever and ever. Love you Derrick!
