I have been reading all the news articles, posts, and viewing the video tributs. It is apparent that Derek was loved by all. As a family the loss is umbearable, but you must be so proud to know how many lives he touched, and that he is missed by so many. He did more in his short life than most achieve in a lifetime. He was definately a man that others could look up to.
I am a MN Wild season ticket holder and he made watching the games more exciting. I will miss the little smirk on his face. Hockey will not be the same without him.
God bless you Boogeyman!
