Derek, your courage, determination and bravery were an inspiration to us all.
As our 'Big Brother' you were the best!
As a loving husband, father, son, brother-in-law
and friend you will be so very sadly missed.
We will all hold our treasured memories of you in our hearts forever.
May the trees in your grove grow strong and tall
and be a living memorial to you ... now at peace.
You've Got a Friend
When you're down and troubled
And you need some loving care
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night
You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there
You've got a friend
