It feels like I got the crappy end because I was use to you being there and then u were so unexpectedly gone:/ its kinda crappy cause I could of been there more but of course you never think your time is running short. I guess I have to settle for the memories..and I can pass those on to my daughter. I miss you daddy I love you

Howdy dad! Not getting married. We decided that it would be nice but nothing is wrong holding off for a while. We just want to focus on the baby. She's moving soooo much lol. When she moves and kicks I tell Devin and he gets excited but as soon as he puts his hand on my belly she quits. I think he takes it personally but I think of it as she's teasing him lol. We changed her name to Danielle Mae. Call her Dani for short. Devins blood grandpa and my paw paw are Danny lol that's why we picked it:) She's already got an attitude and she ain't even born. She will kick hard and when I say quit it she kicks harder and I feel like your looking down on me laughing your butt off. Lol I think were gonna have our hands full but mom did a good job and you did a good job so I think we will be ok. Me and Dylan have been talking about you a lot. The fact your gone gets to him just as bad as it gets to me. I still have crying spells and wish you were there to hold me or at least make me laugh:) plus I'm a million emotions into 1 so that doesn't help. I miss you like crazy daddy. I think of you when I have money lol I think of you when I see family guy or futurama on tv, I think of you when I see a father and daughter out in public..it gets to me and I just pray for comfort. Dani is gonna know her grandpa and how awesome he was. And she will not be musically challenged like I was lol. I love you daddy

Hay dad its been 6 months since your left us.. and Daddy guess what? I'm getting married!! June 22,2014. I got a dress already so I wouldn't have to worry about it later on. It's really pretty dad. I wish I could have you walk me down the aisle daddy..but I'm going to carry a picture of you with me down the aisle so at least your picture can be there with me. I miss you dad I still can't believe your gone..it doesn't feel real but it is and there's nothing I can do but try to heal...people tell me I need to move on but it really isn't easy..some days are better than others but sometimes it just feels like a dream and I'm still waiting to wake up and be next to your hospital bed seeing you get better..I keep waiting but the more I wait the more reality sinks in...I still need u dad and I never will stop loving you, missing you or wishing I could see u one last time...I look at your pictures and see your face and wonder why I couldn't see how sick you were...why didn't I try and help...but then again there's nothing I could do to change it...I love you daddy..please know that.. I'm not angry at you anymore daddy I love you

Derrick,
Thank you for our 2 beautiful children. I will miss your goofey smile sense of humor.
January 27, 2013
I feel how futile it must be for any words of mine that should attempt to distract you from the grief of a loss so intense. But I cannot refrain from expressing to you the comfort that may be found in the thanks of the many lives Derrick had touched, having brought uplifting moments to all of us when we needed it the most. Words can barely describe the silence and sorrow felt by his friends around the world. May his memory live on forever through his children and those that knew him best.
January 27, 2013
Thanks for all you've done, may you rest in peace.
My condolences to the family.
