Derik was one of the most selfless people many of us have ever known. To pay him back for his kindness, those close to him did their best to help him through tough times. Because of this, we are trying to raise funds to help those that have supported Derik financially. We're so happy that Derik shared his time with so many people. He was such a charismatic and charming person, it was hard not to love him. Any support is much appreciated. We have done it bc his girlfriend Amanda Danielle Hughes has supported my brother through so much and to take some relief for her pain we want to help her financially. The money will be used to pay Derik's car, credit card debt, and court fees. If anyone has any questions about donating please contact his sister, Krystle. Please understand that at first we wanted to help with funeral cost but my parents have declined and wanted the funds to go to Amanda to help her. I apologize that this has gone so public, but your donations will not go for anyone's personal use. It is to help relieve some financial burdens and that is all. Again, any help is much appreciated.
