Deroy was ONE of those people who I will tell you is a self made man. His back ground was one of privilege. I KNOW hos much he loved his daughter Courtney. He was all about seeing her again when he was sick and in a nursing home. I don't think Deroy would have made it without seeing his daughter. I was very happy that he got to see Courtney before he died...he was just waiting for her before he passed on. I very much loved. He was everything to everybody. RIP dear DeRoy. Your wish was my command.
