This man brought me completely to a new place in my life, openly communicating with the world. He became not only a best friend to me, but a brother in the truest sense.
Derek was thrilled that at this point in his life he could bring laughter to people that needed it the most. He absolutely loved it.
Thank you everyone for following his journey in the comedy he loved to make. I will have more to say, at a later date!
Keep laughing and loving and give our star a thought now and again.
