Semper Fidelis - Marine Corp motto in Latin meaning “Always Faithful.”
A young Washington County man named Derek Bartley died last week in a tragic accident at home. He was 23.
You know death is so unnatural when it comes to a young person full of life. Nobody wants to die, but there are no parents that want to bury their children. I can only imagine the anguish of broken hearts for David and Laura. It must be what hell is like.
I never met Derek, but I know he was a remarkable young man.
