Hi Husband, Today is two years you have been gone. I still feel so empty. I miss you so much, I know you will always be in my heart and that you are with me every moment. I wish I could kiss you and feel you next to me. Wait for me baby, I will join you one day and then we can finish our lives together that was taken from us too soon, way too soon. I love you always....Your Wife

Dear Derek,
Thought of you today, but that is nothing new I thought about you yesterday and all the days before that too.
I think of you in silence and often speak your name, all I have is memories and pictures in a frame
Your memory is a keepsake for which I will never part , for you will always be in my heart….
Merry Christmas I love you
Your wife forever Denise

Dear Simpson Family-
Derek came to mind today and upon doing an internet search for his name, read of his passing and cried. I worked with him several years ago and he was always fun to talk to even when he was upset that something wasn't going his way. What a great guy; my sympathies to the entire family.

I was saddened with the news of Dereks passing. I always enjoyed spending time with him at and on the track. Derek had an effect on me and I only saw him three or four times a year at the big races. You will be missed. RIP brother.
January 26, 2013
Thank God for memories! You were always a great friend and confidant, ALWAYS making sure I was taken care of. I will forever hold close those special moments we shared and keep you in my heart. I miss you, but love knowing you are close.

I'm doing the candle now for I didn't see it earlier. I love reading all the signings. When I saw the one from Paragould, Arkansas it gave me spirits due to that is where I was born, so I wanted do the candle for Derek. R.I.P. Hang in there Denise~!! Love your 3rd cousin, Kim Goodman
January 11, 2013
I can't hardly believe this. He was only one year older than I am. He also was one of the many deaths in my family members that has taken place since 2010 and forward. My heart is sore/saddened when I was told by his mom. I found out after the memorial services took place. I'm sorry to of missed them. He will be missed by many. Derek was my third cousin. I'm glad I took the time to talk with him in March at his aunt's funeral services. Anna Mae was my second cousin and his aunt. Rest in Peace Derek~!!! ? :-)

Derek my dear sweet brother in law whom made my beautiful sister Denise happier with every passing day will be sadly missed and always remembered with profound love and compassion
October 03, 2012
Seeing Derek win his first battle against cancer 5 years ago only to be stricken again so recently during the happiest days of his life taught me what courage is all about. He worked hard and played even harder. Derek lived life to it's fullest. He loved unconditionally. It was an honor to know him. (I'll never be able to drink a "5 Hour Energy" again without smiling memories of my friend.) RIP
October 03, 2012
My thoughts and prayers go out to Denise and the rest of the Simpson Family. Derek was an amazing person, so sweet and caring. No matter what, he always had a smile on his face, making jokes and staying positive. He will be missed by us all. Love you Derek and I am blessed and grateful to have known you.
October 02, 2012
Derek was one of the good guys. He always took the time to say hello to me at the BMX races. My condolences to the family.
October 02, 2012
For The Family,
Please consider my condolences at this time of great sorrow, loosing anyone much less a person as special as your Husband, Father or Grandfather is no less than tragic, at any point of their life. Although I have only had the benefit of knowing Derek a short time, he struck me in a way not many people do. Derek was driven, dedicated, and just overall a truly nice guy. I am sorry to lose him as a friend, as I am sure you are as a family member. Please except my prayers and thoughts during these challenging times.
God Bless.
