Derrick, my heart is broken and the tears don't stop. You made me laugh like no one else could. I know you loved me as I loved you. I will remember the words your wrote in my birthday card this past September, "Remember will positive thoughts into existence". Rest with Papa, he will take care of you until we are together again in eternity. Love always, MOM
