My Story

“im Derek. life is worth living. no matter how bad things may seem there is always love and some purpose for you, if you just love peace will follow, the world is too messed up to be negative, being positive will change your life drastically, you will realize that your life is nowhere near as bad as you thought, live life, love much, laugh often. peace =D” Although Derek lost his four-year fight against rhabdomyosarcoma, he would like us to not mourn his death, but to honor his life and cherish all the wonderful memories. He endured incredible pain and suffering over the last few years and never complained. We all should follow his example. Derek loved fishing with his Dad, Jimmy, Pop-pop, and uncles, playing video games with Troy, playing soccer with Brandon, Andrew, and his many other soccer buddies, skateboarding with Jack, hanging out with Bre, playing his guitar, making food with Gramma, listening to Grandpa's Navy stories, picking vegetables in Babci's garden, watching Flyers games and collecting memorabilia, and clothes shopping with Mom. Derek was thrilled to get his driver's license in April and enjoyed driving his car. We miss him deeply.
