"In our teens we were wild. We ran skateland every weekend. We ran the streets just about every night kicking back with all the homies not worrying about a thing. We had great times back in the day and even though we got into trouble sometimes I wouldn't trade the past for anything. Into our 20s life happened and I had a child and got married and Derrick was gone here and there. We would meet up when we could or talk on the phone and everytime we did it was like we just talked or kicked it yesterday. I always trusted Derrick with anything. Derrick was a true friend. A friend that would do anything for you or give you the shoes off his feet if you needed them. He was always truly happy to see you as he ran up with his hand out to shake your hand and pull you in for a hug and with his crazy self say in a loud voice with a big smile say "wuh sup fooooo! How you been?" I'm going to miss that. We will all miss that. We will all miss you Derrick but you will never be forgotten. We will all smile when we think of you as you brightened all our lives when you were around. We met up here and there in the past when we could and there will be one more place we meet and kick it forever. Until we meet again bro, it will feel like we just talked yesterday. Rest in peace Derrick lancaster."

"You got us kicked out of skateland for life is one memory I'll never forget.   Drinking Yukon Jack and grape coolaid at your birthday party.  Staying up all night then going to the greenway after.  Derrick it has been years since we kicked it.  Even after all that time you still worried about me when I showed up at a Halloween party making sure the guy I brought with was alright.  Your a good friend and always down for whatever even if that got you into trouble.  Enjoy your peace don't get yourself in trouble with the big guy up stairs we all miss you already.  Watch out for us an extra set of eye never hurt nobody. Your friend Always!  Rachel."

"Oh Derrick I can not believe this.  We spent years growing up together.  Hanging at Skateland as kids.  Drinking forties at my apartment in our 20s. Floating the river and you sunburning yourself like a lobster.  Good times.  You were like a brother to me.  Your smile was infectious, you always lit up the room.  Wish I could've had that lunch we talked about to catch up.  To hear your wonderful laugh again.  Rest in Peace my Homie, I will see you again."

"A tribute to Derek where do I start in sixth grade when we used to have to run across the street during lunch to wake you up to get you to school at Lewis and Clark or when we'd all meet up and go skating every Friday and Saturday night or run the streets on spring break or out until five six in the morning just because we didn't feel like going home we've been friends since 1990s. The memories go on and on I can't believe you're gone it weighs heavy on my heart and soul that you u r gone. May you rest in peace my thoughts and prayers to your family and friends your struggle here on Earth is finally over you are the hands of God you will be truly missed but never forgotten my friend... RIP MY DEAR FRIEND"
