My sweet Derek, I know it's been a year and I am holding on strong. I still cry and I miss you, that I can't control. Keeping you with me is how I'm consoled. Love does not end and memories are gold, each day is a blessing, my heart feels you too...I will always love you!!!
God Bless Derek & Family! Our prayers are with you!!
The Harold Catchot Family
Our hearts are heavy to be in Atlanta and not on the Coast to comfort our friends, more like family, on the passing of Derek. Heartbroken by the news, we have struggled to find understanding or reason for someone so young and incredible to be taken from his family and friends. We love Derek like one of our own. I am drawing comfort from his mother Susan, marveling at her strength and certainty of his place in heaven. We are thankful for the love and joy Derek has brought us.
My Darling Derek, today I finally saw your face and hugged your frame. I kissed your forehead and keep saying your name,I held your hand and I sang you songs. I needed that closure to make me see your just as handsome as I remembered thee, God has taken your soul and I too will see the beauty of heaven when he calls for me. Until that day I will stay strong, I will keep you in my heart and remember your smile and find peace that it could be tomorrow. One day I will see one life to the next that Derek you are free!! I will always hold you close and dream of tomorrow that is the only way I can fight this sorrow!! I love you infinity!!
My thoughts and prayers are with your family. You will be truly missed R..I. P. Derek.
I am Nick and Lauren Stewarts Grandmother, my heart is heavy for you. Derek was a very nice, friendly young man when he visited my camp in Pierre Part La. He left this earth too soon, may he rest in peace forever!
God bless the Chatagnier family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Derek you were a wonderful person and God has wonderful plans for you. I love and miss you dearly. I will join you again one day
I have known Derek since Popps Ferry Elem. He was so kind and so much fun to be around. Rest Easy Derek and God bless his family.
Hey Mrs. Susan I am so sorry for the loss of your son. He was a great friend. That no one will ever forget him. He is in heaven watching over us smiling down.
Derek was a light so desperately needed in this world! Our Precious Lord knew what he needed more than any of us here on earth. His smile would light the darkest room. I loved him so much.
Susan, am so sorry about Derek. He was such a nice and polite guy. Saw him a couple of months ago. I know it is awful for you. Thinking of you all.
GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY SUSAN IM SO SORRY ABOUT YOUR SON !! HES IN A BETTER PLACE THAN WE ARE NOW !!!
