Sunday, our small town was stunned by the accidental death of a 9 year old boy. All week there has just been this dark cloud over the whole town.
I don't really know the family. I do know they are active in the community, always there to lend a helping hand to any project or donate to a good cause.
Someone started a facebook page, random acts of kindness in memory of him. I know I will be doing somethings to honor this little boy, not sure what yet. Doubt I will post about it on facebook, just something anonymous.
Maybe with a note to be thankful for your family, your friends, the beauty around you - or baseball. Derek loved baseball.
