My Soulmate, best friend and boyfriend of 7 years was murdered by a drunk ******* on Nov. 28th 2009 at 2:30 am.
(Palm Springs, ca)
What is there to say? My future with Derek Short-Wilson (boyfriend of 7yrs) was stolen from me. He was the most kind-hearted, generous, trust-worthy, beautiful person. He was the kind of guy that always had a smile on his face, and he would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Derek and I had the kind of relationship that is very rare, we would occasionally spend the night at one of our friends houses, only for a night just to hang out with our "girls" or "boys". We lived together of 4 years, we have a maltese his name is "Rexx" who is like a child and loved eachother so much it is undescribeable, we were soul mates that were madly in love. He left at 6:30 pm Friday Nov. 27th to spend the night at his buddy Ernesto's house. They went out, went to a friends house hung out, had fun and left at 2:00 am to go back and go to sleep. For some reason we have yet to find out, Ernesto's car stalled. They both got out to push, and Derek yells, "Ernesto! Get in the Driver's seat and steer!" The door wasnt even closed, when Ernie got in the seat before they were hit by a drunk driver going 70mph, in a 40mph zone. This ******* hit Derek head on, he was pinned, legs crushed, his spinal cord smashed as well. He was gone, dead, never to been seen smiling or laughing again, I cannot kiss his lips, or hold his hand...my worst nightmare had come true. On Nov. 29th the doctors clinically diagnosed Derek "brain dead". He and I years ago had decided to become organ donors. They took everything of his, he saved 7 lives, (including Ernesto's). But yet I still do not care about anyone else...I WANT HIM BACK!!!! HE WAS STOLEN!!!! This ******* drunk driver took our future of getting married and having children away from me. I am hollow inside, when that driver killed Derek he took me with him. This Guy MUST PAY for what he did. There is no question, I could kill someone I am so angry. We have yet to find out what the verdict will be for the drunk driver for it was his first offense...he most likely will get 5 years. But we will see. Will keep you posted.
Alexia Lyons or better yet, Alexia Short-Wilson
