To Peggy and family,
words alone are not always enough to comfort you at this time. But knowing that he is in a place where he is not in any pain any more should bring comfort. He fought a good fight and ran his course. He is in the presence of the Lord now, what a wonderful place to be. Find comfort in the Lord and His promises to us. You are in our prayers for strength during this difficult time.

Derrick was my first friend in my whole life we always were together and he was like a brother to me. I remember all the summers were we went to each others houses for almost months at a time and we would be apart for only about a week. He was always there for me and I would have done anything for him. He was the most amazing friend a guy could ever ask for and I am so lucky to have had him in my life.
