So very saddened by this news. Derrick was my student in Spanish class 2007-2008. What a great guy; kind, congenial. My heart breaks for you all.

thank you all for your love and support through these trying times, words cant even begin to describe how much you are loved and will be missed.

Words cannot express how sorrowful I am for you all. Eric Champion and Derrick were good friends he came over to our house a number of times. They were in boyscouts togehter and they also graduated together. You are in my prayers and please know we loved Derrick like he was our family. May God give you strength to get through this difficult time.
