As a student of Derrick's I am terribly saddened by his passing.When i dedicateed my third year book to him at HLS - I stated "To the kindest and most compassionate person I have ever known." As years went by I learned he was even far beyond that.

On the Night of President Obama's election, I called him to ask him about how he felt. He was of course thrilled that not only a black man had been elected president, but one of HLS's own - I asked him if he got to vote. He told me he was 3 hours back in the line when someone came to him and told him he didn't have to wait in line - his response "I have been waiting all my life to be in this line." Unfortunately that was the last time we spoke although we wrote to each oother regulalry - He was the most special of humnan beings to ever exist - I will miss hime dearly.
