It is just unreal it has already been a Decade. 10 years has flown by, but the hurt and the grief we have with you feels like a lifetime. I wish you would you would just come home, and that this is all a dream. I hope up there in heaven you and Father are laughing and making fun of us as usual :) Even after 10 years our shattered hearts are still beating. I wish you could see our Son, Lane Michael, you would be so proud of how he has turned out and how much he looks like you! We love you Derrick Alan Mowery and we will miss you and love you until we meet again. I love you always.....

7 years that you have been gone from us...we miss you so much. It still feels like yesterday. Your son has grown in quite the little man. I'm sure you can see him from above and your smiling ear to ear..saying "that's my boy"! Derrick the hurt is still there with all of us and the scars remain. We love and miss you more than any words can explain.

~~ 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....

Today, January 8th marks 4 Years that Derrick has been gone and it still seems like yesterday For you that doesn't know Derrick is my son's Dad, I will never in my life forget the morning Friday January 8, 2010 at 11:15 when I got the call of the bad bad news, There isn't a day that goes by that your name is mentioned..I think of you constantly, wondering why you left us so soon, Lane was 5 at the time, asking why, and still asks Why, I just tell him that God needed you more than us. Just last night I had a dream of you and it was very very Realistic, unbelievable...You were right there in the dream talking to me like you were here with us. But...just a dream Derrick you made a major impact on my life, you may not be here in person, but you will ALWAYS be in my heart!!! I love you Derrick and Miss you, May you Rest In Peace, please continue to watch over your Son and I and lead us to where you think we need to be, I know you have company now...Father has joined you as well and both of you are looking over us now. My Love, Derrick Allen Mowery, I love and Miss you, You will never be forgotten and the memories will always remain. 1/25/1967 to 1/08/2010

Derrick and I was together for nearly 6 years plus, He is the Dad of our son Lane Michael Mowery 6 years of age, He was a very special friend to me till the end, He is sadly missed and loved each and every day, we don't know why he left so soon, when he passed, half myself died, all I can do now is hang on to the memories and the pictures I have. Hopefully someday we will see him again. We love and miss you Derrick!!!

Jeff and I had known Derrick for about 16 years. He was a good friend and we had alot of good times with him, never a dull moment. Glad to have known him. I am sure we will all see him again someday and the good times will continue. Heather and Lane hang in there and hang onto the memories you have. Love and miss you Derrick!

I have known Derrick for almost 11 yrs and has always been a friend to me..he will be missed!

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.

Mountain Climber

Shared by Tom Mowery on January 22, 2012

I took derrick with me in the tractor trailer to north carlonia about 33 yrs ago. The weather turned very bad, heavy fog and very hard to see so i pulled over and parked against a mountain. Derrick crawled in the sleeper about 4 in th morning and fell asleep. At 6 i awoke and he was gone. i searched for him about half an hour, no derrick i was scared out of my mind. Walking across the parking lot i could hear him shouting at me and when i looked up at the top of the mountain there he was sitting way up on the top. He had climed up there in the fog and on the ice about 400 feet. I asked him why and said dad i was ok. I knew at that moment his life would be different and i would never stop worring what he would do next He never let me down and he knew no fear. He was so much like me i guess i knew how his life would be. I know i miss him Dad.
