Bye Derek

Cate just let me know that an old friend of ours, Derek Lindsey, passed away this weekend. I am sad because I didn't find out until after the funeral, and I was unaware that at 26 I need to be watching the obits.

It has been years since I hung out with Derek, he and I hung out daily for awhile when I was 18 and casually hung out since I was around 15 or 16. What I loved about Derek was his joy and the fact that he was able to pull anyone into it. He was fun, crazy and loved attention and was usually the center of it. It was hard not to laugh when you were with Derek, and now there's a little more laughter in heaven I guess.



This pic is of Derek and a friend of ours that I nabbed from his memorial site from back in the days, I haven't dug up mine somehow. His obit and memorial page:
