To the family, friends and loved ones of Derrick, May the God of all comfort provide you comfort and solace in this time of grief and loss. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Just as you want to see Derrick again, God also longs to see the work of His hands. (Job 14:15) His desire is to raise up those who have been taken from us by our enemy Death, so that they can enjoy a beautiful life on a paradise Earth according to his original purpose for humans. May the God of All Comfort be with you until that day. (Psalm 37:29; John 5:28,29 and 2 Corinthians 4:7)

Sincerely,
DJ
