I didn’t know him — I think I only met once, when we were kids — but know his brother and mother quite well.

I was greatly saddened to hear that this week we lost my cousin to depression.

RIP Derek, 1980-2014.

Very sorry to hear this Daniel. I’ve lost a cousin to the same situation and it hit me for six, despite also not knowing him very well. Death is always a tragedy but depression just feels utterly senseless.
