On July 2, 2013, my eldest sister relayed that our only brother, Derek Carl Smith, had passed away, after suffering a long illness. He was born on July 26, 1958 and transitioned on June 10, 2013. Today, July 7, 2013, a memorial service was held for Derek, in Macedonia, Ohio, and this tribute includes life lessons he taught me . . .
In memory of Derek Carl Smith, my big brother
