My memories of Derek will always be of fun, laughter and music from when we were young. Illness deprived him and us of more good times. A wonderful family is his most enduring legacy. My thoughts are with you all.

A time to reflect on the great times and memories of your father. He was a great friend of my fathers and we are thinking of the family at this time.
