  1. My husband and I were neighbors of Derry and Nadine for 20 years in Weatherford, Tx
    We lived there when Nadine died and Derry moved to Bowie. They were the best neighbors and good friends and we miss them. We moved in July after Derry moved to Bowie so we lost touch with him. My husband died in Nov 2017 but I am so sorry to hear that Derry has died. I am praying for Kirsten that God will comfort her and bless her in a special way. She has lost so much.
