Where do I begin, u were that short lil person with all that fire an spunk , bit most of all u had such a heart , I can’t think of any of my early memories that don’t have either u or Sheryl in them . There was a many fights between the 2 of us but at the end of the day we both realized we were like family an that was all that mattered ..
I know if not for you the man I am today I wouldn’t be , an I can not thank u enough , I miss u so dearly ..
The lord got him a great one when he called you home ..we will see each other again an this time we will be new an clean in faith ..
I love u so much but miss u even more ..

You and I first got close about 4 years ago when you were going through a hard time. I know you were suffering and missed your daughter so much. I hope you are at peace now. I’m sorry I couldn’t do more to help you with your pain. I’m glad we got to know eachother. I will miss you.
Love always,

Till the days end
I long for your touch, the smell of your skin, The tears that will flow
and land on my chin. There is never a moment or a day that goes by
that I don’t sit and think of you and of this situation and cry!
From the moment we met, You have touched me so deep,
That I day dream of you even when I don’t sleep.
I want you to know how I feel inside, With each passing day I will have
nothing to hide.
Though the days grow shorter and the nights with out you are long
Remember with each passing day my love for you will only grow strong
I am here for you now and until the very end.
I want you to know that you are not only my lover, but my very best friend!
As you leave this place and are sent high above please know in your heart you carry my love.
For I am with you always, even in Death and I forever will love you I âm not like the rest
For remember that day will come, when you leave this earth, but know in your heart you have been loved from birth.
I want you to know in your heart with in, You are my love, my very best friend
Though our time together was short and sweet, I still long for the day of when we will meet.
And when you are finally gone to the heavens above, I will never forget and will hold on to our love.
For the day will come when I too will pass and I will look for that beacon on light from my past
You my dear are my beacon so, I will be looking for you on that day I must go.
I will hear your voice within the wind and will remember the feel of your touch when the rains falls on my skin.
Even though we must part, that day will come, when we will meet again and I will hear your voice, crying in the wind
you will say to me, come home my love, my very best friend!
For when we meet, I will hold you so and see your face all in a glow
I made the most of our time together, even though we went through some stormy weather!
I will try not to fret or even cry, for know when you passed, that my heart too surely died!
Please know I love you so, in many ways and that you my love has set my heart a blaze!

A Dream
There is never a day that goes by That I don’t dream of you.
Remembering your sexy laugh That always makes me smile When I am feeling down and blue You’re the girl of my dreams The one that I love The one my mother told me about Who would be sent from heaven above The one who would love me And comfort me till all my days end You would be My love ,My confidant But most of all my best friend!

From the moment you came into my life (age 11) you captured my heart. My first love. My first best friends. I love you so very much not a day of my childhood didnt have you in it. Not a day in my life there after that I didnt speak your name, share an adventure we had or not a day in my 40 yrs of knowing you had I not thought of you in some way. So sad your gone but I know your in no pain and with your only daughter Robin Ann. RIP Bright Eyes. Forever your Derek.
