I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Derrell’s family. Although Derrell was my 2nd cousin l never had the opportunity to get to know him like l would have liked to. This particular incident, my two sisters and l will never forget, we speak of it often. As teenagers our family went to Houma one Sunday to visit his family. He and his brother Bobby and sister Juanita were home with their parents. After a while it was decided that Derrell and Bobby would take us on a tour of Houma. Very enjoyable day. Those two young men treated us like royalty. Pure gentlemen. Derrell is with all his loving relatives now. My prayers are with all of you. Patricia Rodrigue Bourgeois

Dear "Sonny"- I will always remember your strength of character and your bright smile - and how you loved to DANCE! All y'all Heberts were always so kind to me in both the good times and sad, and I will never forget y'all. You have fought the good fight and drank the bitter dregs all the way to the finish. I know all your Rodrigue aunts are waiting to dance with you at the Pearly Gates!
With my deepest fraternal love, Your 'cuz, Al

Derrell was a fellow Marine, a gentleman, and friend. He was always
pleasant and with that smile you knew he was a trustworthy friend. We are all poorer for his passing and better for his having been here. From
one Teufelhund to another, Semper Fi and carry on, Marine.
Semper Fi and carry on Marine.
