I’ve lost a lot of friends and buddies over the years. When I heard Dereck was on his way home I felt really different. He was one of the good ones, not to be cliche’, His smile and laugh will always be in my mind. We lost track of one another, my fault I moved away….. Dereck and I met in high school and spent a lot of time together in the ole ISS that Greene joint provided. That man turned into one of the best people I know. I got to know his kids cause I grew up with Christina….. imagine that. A guy I knew had kids with a girl I grew up with!!! He was an awesome dad…. And awesome friend ! I’m really sad that he left but happy that he’s gonna be home! I hope to have his enjoyment of life….. I’ll miss him!
