Man this one hurts different. This one hurts bad. Im so sorry for your loss Mary Anne and Mark. As a parent now myself, I find it very admirable that you guys remain so strong and united as a family cause i couldn’t imagine the pain you must be going through losing a child. Your baby boy. This isn’t how its supposed to be. If you guys need anything and I mean absolutely anything, please do not hesitate to reach out. Derek will be missed. He was very loved
