“Welcome home Derek. It wasn’t suppose to be this way. You were more then just my nephew, you were one of my own. My life was better because you were in it. Love you D, forever! Stand down, Soldier. Your watch is over.

From the post on Facebook, posted at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Monday, March 18 by Krystina Dressler:

This morning, I went to wake Derek up at his normal time for the MATC and, he didn’t wake up…I tried everything I could think of. I held out hope when I listened for a heartbeat as I tried to wake him and there was none, and even still held out hope when they told me he was gone.I will miss you everyday, Derek. For your shenanigans, for always making me laugh, for being an amazing person, for loving me and all my craziness, for your insanities that drove me up a wall, for being there for me through everything. You gave me the best 6 years I could have ever asked for with someone. I know you’ll always be with me. I tried everything I could to help you today. I hope you know that, I’m so sorry. :[ I will always love you. You will forever be my toooots and ill forever be your crazy broad. Heaven gained an amazing angel today. I know you we’re greeted by my papa, my great grandma, my uncle richie, your amazing grandma and great grandma.

I love you, for always Derek
