To the boss man that gave me a chance to show what I was truly worth, thank you Derek. We spent to much time together these last 4 years and I'll never forget our times together good and bad. We didn't see eye to eye all the time but we had the utmost respect for one another and together we built a successful building. Im goin to truly miss u sitting in the office or walking around the warehouse with your slippers knowing you should be in the bed sleep lol untill we meet again my friend❤
