In Memory of Derek Jordan Ragland 10/21/88-10/2/14

Derek Jordan Ragland,
Words can't express enough of how everyone feels about losing you. There is no doubt about it you touched life's of thousands and I'm sure a lot you didn't even know you had. Life took you way to soon. 25 short years but no doubt you lived everyday to the fullest through your ups, downs and always kept that smiley smirk on your face. One of the many things I along with many many others loved so much about you. I truly believe that even though you was called home so early in life that you was saved from something else. God needed you in his army and be one of his Angels. And before he let that happen he took you home. We all know that you have him laughing and smiling right along with you. No more anything but happiness. As hard as it is for me to say this I'm glad that your forever safe and always happy. No more worry, fear, hurt or bad. I love you Bubba so much and so does everyone else! I know your smiling down on us and always will! Until we meet again. R.I.P
