Dios mio!! Que tristeza :-(

I am Tommy Gallagher's mom. Derick and Tommy were good friends in Lincoln School. I remember Derick was a sweet boy and Juan and Rafaela made my son feel so at home. Those were great times. I can't believe Derick is gone. I offer my deepest condolences.

I also know how hard you worked to conceive Derick and since that day the emended love you had for him!
I cannot possibly imagine the grief you both feel at this dark time ! I pray for all of you and wish you to find peace ! We are here for you in our thoughts prayers and in any way we can be. Please know you are in our Harts!
