My heart was sadden over the loss of your son Derek and I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose a child, a part of you, can bring such overwhelming grief but the God of all comfort tells us at 2 Kings 20:5 he hears our prayers, he sees our tears, and he feels our pain. At jw.org we can read John 5:28, 29 that you will have your son in your life once again. May all the sweet memories you have give you calm and peace to help you through the dark moments until God’s promises come true. Again so very sorry for your heartache.

Derek's ability to always make me smile. Even when he was being a nix nuts, it was always in a Robin Hood sort of way. Rhonda would shake her head and say "you're right, but you still can't do that"... Even as a child, he was wise beyond his years...human nature wise. When Rhonda succeeded in her goal to get a home where the kids could have their own rooms, Derek's words..."I don't see what the big deal is...I love my sister and still prefer to be with her"...wise beyond his years. He loved his mother and his sister beyond words...and better yet, he was never afraid to tell me just how much he loved them. If more people were like Derek, this world would be a better place.
