Comments

  1. The sorrow those who knew and and loved him are feeling. Only our Lord and Savior can sustain us in the loss of Dwight. He was truly a very special cousin.

    • Thank you Ted, he liked you a great deal and always enjoyed
      talking with you when he visited the hospital for lunch.

    • Yes, Tom our hearts are broken and we cannot believe that
      he is gone. He shared many special memories of growing up
      with you and George.

  2. Daddy was truly one of a kind. He lived a life of adventure. His presence is missed more than words can describe. The reality that he is gone has not yet sank in yet. Dad always seemed untouchable, indestructible. He was a man’s man and we all had faith, that in his typical toughness, he would win his battle with cancer. He put up a valiant fight, but his disease was to progressed and his body weakened too fast. I love and miss you so much and just cannot believe that you are no longer here to give us a hard time or share with us one of your fabulous tales. Love and miss you more than I could ever imagine.

    • Yes honey, we all fully expected with his strength and typical indestructible nature that Dwight would fight this battle
      and win. Unfortunately it was so aggressive and showed
      no mercy. Love and miss you beyond what mere words
      can express. Have to share lyrics from a song titled Pieces
      of You. “Pieces of you all scattered around There’s nothing really left for me to cling to but these pieces of a dream that fell apart and living’s slowly killing me without you. Not to mention what it’s doing to my heart ” –

  3. Yes candy he was a man’s man.he was an entertaining individual.I met him when he would bring pizza for lunch to his wonderful wife donna.when in his presence he made you feel like he knew you forever.R.I.P. DWIGHT.
