Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Derrick Lee Whittle

I met Derrick earlier this year when we attended the Police Academy together. He was a great man and friend, always there to support his classmates when they needed him. It was obvious he loved his family very much, and they are in my prayers. He will be missed.
