  1. I worked with Dwain at AstraZeneca years ago and remember how he would light up a room. He was so friendly and funny, he will be sorely missed. My sincere condolences to his entire family.

  2. He was in my class when he attended Living Word Academy. My prayers are with his family and friends. May the Lord comfort those who need it at this time.
