Tyrel Joe Derrick, 19, of McFarland Road, Carlsbad, New Mexico, passed away Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at his home.
There will be no public visitation.
Funeral services are scheduled for Monday, April 7, 2014, 2:00 PM, at Denton-Wood Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Wayne Derrick officiating. Interment will follow in Carlsbad Cemetery, Carlsbad, New Mexico.
Denton-Wood Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements. There is a song that I know many of you have heard it is called "When you say nothing at all". These words mean a lot to me because my son does not speak anymore but when he does not say anything at all I still know his wants and needs. This child has taught me so much not just about his special needs but about life. I learned quickly that life can be turned upside down in a second but with a child like this you do not realize the bad but the joy in life. The wonderful small things that are so great in this world. This child's eyes and smile can light a room and really makes me see how great our life is and always will be. Many people feel sorry for us and what we been through , but we feel lucky not everyone gets a wonderful son that teaches you so much with saying nothing at all.....Love You MR. TYREL.
The poem above was written about six years ago and this fine young man continued to teach us so many things. His love was endless and the look in his eyes and his laugh would fill your heart with joy. I cannot put into words how much he will be missed and we know he will be looking down guiding us as we go through life but there will be darkness in our hearts that will never be filled until we meet again. We love you, Tyrel. Love you so much Lil Man, Momma
