Derrick Holmes, enjoying life in Shinjuku, Tokyo, November 2012.
I am extremely saddened to learn of the passing of my friend Derrick Michael Holmes on November 25, 2012. At this point, I don't have any other details, but his passing strikes me especially hard. Derrick was easily one of the nicest people I've ever met, either in Japan or the U.S.

Rest in Peace, my friend.
