As we mourn the loss of Derrell, we find comfort in knowing that he was loved by so many. San Antonio AIDS Foundation (SAAF) has been a lifeline and support system in Derrell's life for many years. The compassion and patience he received from them is just one example of all they do for the AIDS community. Esmerelda Putina, his girlfriend, has been a true gift for Derrell. He was loved and in love at the end of his life, making plans and dreaming of the future. The family is eternally grateful for the SAAF, their staff and especially Janice, Dr. Bullock, for her loving care. His friends Mike, Blake, Cassandra and many others. They have all been family for him and he loved them fiercely.
