Vern and Lucy so sorry to hear of your loss. We talk fondly of Jason and Dan growing up with the Weber's. God bless you at this very difficult time.
I am so sorry for the lose of your Great son Derek. I worked with him at Ci-Ci's pizza and even got to take him out fishing on the river one day. He was always a joy to work with and had a great sense of humor that made work so much fun.
My Greatest Respect
Dear Lucille and Vern, Wade and Brent and families. So sorry to hear of your loss of Derek. Even though we haven't run into each other lately, I always loved running into Lucille and filling each other in on our families. My thoughts are with you at this time. The flood of 78 and how we helped each other comes to mind.
I am thinking of you during this difficult time. I know Derek through by brother Fred and their group of friends Todd, George, and Stewart. When around them or just a few of them, Derek's side eye or humor was always part of someone doing a spit-take, surprised snort on the sudden intake of air, or an outright outburst of laughter until one could barely breath and eyes were watering. I hope you find some comfort within all of Derek's shared memories. May you peaceful, may you be protected, in loving kindness.
Lucille and Vern,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. You and your families will be in my thoughts and prayers. - Char

Sorry to hear of the loss of Derek. I am sure this is not easy as a parent. Thinking of you all. Our sympathy is with you.

Dear Weber Family,
Please know I am thinking of you during this difficult time. I went to Kellogg Junior High with Derek, which feels like a lifetime ago in some ways and not that long ago in other ways. I hope you find comfort in your memories of Derek and support from your family and friends.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Vern and Lucille,
We were so very saddened to hear of the death of your son. As parents, we cannot even begin to imagine what you must be experiencing. Our thoughts and prayers and with you and your family at this difficult time.
