In memory of Derimus Golden

Derimus Golden was battling kidney failure since he was 19. Derimus fought for 25 years. He was the type of person that you would have to know in order to know his pain. Derimus was a very vocal and uplifting person. To know him was to love him. When there are people around and everybody is having a good time, he would always be the one person that could make everybody in the room smile and laugh. Derimus loved cooking, barbecuing, spending time with family, and most of all, he loved being a father. Derimus was a strong individual and he fought this battle until he was called home. The family attempted with his illness long ago to get a life insurance policy but no one would allow it because it was a risk with kidney failure. So we ask with kindness and gratefulness for donations if you are able to send any amount. It all counts. We would truly appreciate the help.
