Born: 03/13/1970, Passed On: 05/18/2012

George "Derrick" Gross, 42, Upper Marlboro, MD George "Derrick" Gross, 42, of Upper Marlboro, MD., was born on March 13, 1970 in Baltimore, Maryland to Mary Evelyn Gross and George Francis Young. On May 18, 2012, Derrick entered into eternal rest, after a long illness with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), formerly known as "Lou Gehrig's Disease."

Derrick graduated from Largo High School in Largo, Maryland in 1988, where he ran track and field, and became a member of the Largo Varsity basketball team. After graduation Derrick held several positions, which allowed him to travel from Maryland to Florida and Missouri. Derrick always wanted to pursue a career as a Chef. While living in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, he worked at several restaurants. During these employments, he was mentored by various chefs, which allowed him to sharpen his culinary skills. He would often cook, especially during the holidays for his friends and their family members, who praised his cooking. Derrick enjoyed his visits with his family and he looked forward to visiting his grandparents, and especially loved eating his grandmothers' famous stuffed ham, and fried oysters. He also couldn't wait to visit his Aunt Elaine, so that she could cook her delicious hamburgers with gravy.

Derrick cherished his relationship with his beloved grandmother Sarah Gross, who departed this life when he was a young adult. He often would think of her, and how she helped to raise him as a child. He never hesitated to give her praise for nurturing him, and disciplining him when needed. Derrick shared how he would help his grandmother in her garden, because he didn't want her to work too hard. He commented that he often felt his grandmother's presence with him and that he missed her very much. Derrick was a very caring, and giving individual, who was always willing to help his family, friends, or anyone he knew needed help. He especially loved children, and they always developed an immediate attachment to him. He found so much joy, and comfort in making people happy.

If you knew Derrick you would know that he was a very neat and meticulous person. His appearance was a number one concern for him, even during his illness. Derrick had to be well groomed from head-to- toe! His past time favorites included watching his daily television shows such as, Let's Make A Deal, Wheel of Fortune, and Jeopardy. Derrick was a huge sports fan. He enjoyed watching Monday night wrestling, NBA basketball games, football, and boxing. He faithfully watched Channel 9 morning and evening news, as he wanted to stay well informed, about current events.

Derrick leaves to cherish his memory, his mother, Mary Evelyn Gross; his father, George Young; his stepmother, Debbie Young; his sister Tracie Young and his grandparents, John P. Young and
Lillian A. Young. He is also survived by his devoted cousin, Ronald "Devon" Young and a special friend Fred Jones of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, relatives and friends.

Paula Marie Hebb, 55, Washington, D.C.

55, Washington, D.C.

Born: 09/05/1956, Passed On: 05/16/2012

Paula Marie Hebb, 55, Washington, D.C.Paula Marie Hebb departed this life on Wednesday, May 16, 2012, at Specialty Hospital in Washington, D.C. She was born on September 5, 1956 to the late Thomas Leroy Hebb and Margaret Briscoe Hebb in Washington, D.C. She was the second of five children born to this union and was loved dearly by her parents. Paula was an extremely outgoing child, who loved hanging out with her family and friends. Her smile would light up the room and she loved making people laugh.
Paula graduated from Anacostia High School and attended the University of the District of Columbia. She worked at the Smithsonian Institute and later at the U.S. Postal Service for more than 30 years, until she retired in 2011.
As a young child, Paula was involved in Karate and joined the community softball team. She later joined an acrobatic team, the Flying Nesbitts, which appeared as an opening act for various R&B groups and other social events around the D.C. area. While attending Sousa Jr. High School, Paula, her sister, and a group of friends decided to dance to the song "Shaft" in the school's talent show. The group enlisted the help of a community dance instructor, who immediately advised the group that Paula should be the lead dancer as "Shaft", because of her personality. They entered the talent show and came in first place. The audience came alive to her performance and she became known as "Shaft" around school. We all teased her about it for years!
Paula was very protective over her family and had a heart for those who were unable to defend themselves. The family use to joke with Paula, that she could beat us up whenever she pleased, but no one else could touch us. She would show her big smile, for which she was known, and say, "you got that right!" Also, anyone who knew Paula knew that she lived to play Bingo. Her love for Bingo was another running joke in the family. She would laugh at us and say, "yeah, ya'll can laugh while I'm counting my money too," which was an understatement, because she did very well at winning in Bingo!
Paula leaves to cherish her memory, her loving son, Michael S. Gallion, Jr. (Jennifer), her grandchildren, Michael III, Mariah, Tynia, Malique, Marcel, Martinus, Monyae, Maciah, Manny and Michaela; sister, Deborah; brothers, Thomas "Petie", Jr., Charles "Brian", Sr. (Wanda) , Kevin (Mia); nephews, Thomas "Putt" (Edwina), Charles "BJ", Jr., Elliott (deceased); nieces, Makeeta (Steve), Nikia, Kaya (Kyle), Tania, Tiffany and Breanna; great-nieces and nephews, Thomas, Ravyn, Stephen, Lauryn, Kira, Charlie, Kyle, Jr., Kori Lynne; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. She is preceded in death by her mother and father, Thomas Leroy and Margaret Briscoe Hebb.

Family and friends will unite for visitation on Thursday, May 24 from 10 a.m. until time of service at 11 a.m. at Briscoe-Tonic Funeral Home, 38576 Brett Way, Mechanicsville, MD. Interment following at St. Francis Xavier Cemetery. Compton, MD.
