Danny and Gloria you have been in our hearts and mind. Everytime I would run into Derek, we would always have a nice conversation and he was just a cool guy. I wish we could attend the services tomorrow, Mackenna has soccer games in Baker all day. Please know we are deeply sorry for your loss and will always be in our thoughts.
