Not sure what to say?

I just heard about Derek and words cannot express my sorrow for this loss. Derek was a shining star. He had that sharp rapier wit, easy smile and generous spirit. My thoughts to his family - immediate and extended.

I am so sorry for your loss, and will keep you all in my thoughts. It is definitely a time to give thanks for the time we have spent with those dear to us and for those departed, reflect on the amazing lives they lived and the way they impacted us.

So sorry to all for your loss and thinking of the family....

I'm so sad to hear about Derek's passing. I worked with him at Carmax years ago and bought my bike from him, one that he picked up while stationed in Northern Italy. I still ride that bike today and have thought of Derek fondly many times over the years. My prayers go out to his family and friends.

This is Urs and Michelle Gabathuler from Lynchburg, VA, friends of Derek's father Fred and his wife Rebecca. We would like to express our sincere condolences to the entire family.

I am very sorry for your loss. If there is anything I can do, don't hesitate to contact me.

I am so sorry for your loss. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

My heart is with your family during your time of loss. Derek was a great man and will be missed.

This is Frank Britt from Lynchburg. I've know Dereks's father Fred for years. I am so sorry to hear about Derek. I know this is such a loss to Fred and Rebecca and Derek's mother Susan.
