"~~ Today marks 5 years that we have been without Derrick...but it seems like yesterday. They say it gets easier with time but that's not true..we miss him each and everyday Like we did on this day 5 years ago...when I received the call from my Dad I really thought it was one of their jokes but unfortunately it was not. Derrick had called me that morning and I told him it was Elvis birthday and he needed to take me to Graceland and he said he would love to...little did I know that would be our last funny conversation and the last time I would ever hear his voice. I hope he can see his son Lane today and see how much he is growing...looks just like his dad...And see the young man he has become...there's not a day that goes by that we don't speak of him...we were at Kroger just the other night and Laner pointed out this guy behind us and said...Mom he looks like dad...it's just really heartbreaking but it's harder knowing he's gone and we well never see or talk to him again. Derrick Allen Mowery we love and miss you...please R.I.P. my Love...And take care of Father up there and don't you 2 get in any trouble for joking around...we love and miss you...memories will never leave us but the heartbreak continues...."

"I met Derrick 13 years ago. He was there for me through some difficult times and I was thankful to have him as my friend. He was the first person to ever make my son, Noah, laugh out loud. I can still picture him making silly faces to get him to smile. I will never understand why he left us so soon, but his memory will live on through his wonderful little son, Lane. Rest in peace, my friend."
