    Derek, You were such a polite and loving cousin/family member.. I will always remember your warm welcoming smile followed by a hug, and many more fond memories like when you took My dad, Jaquelynn and I 4 wheeling in your new Jeep and out in the middle of nowhere Jaquelynn had to pee so you stopped and as she did her business 5 or 6 other jeeps rolled in and stopped too..haha you loved to pick on and good off with her.
