Dwight was a special guy. I worked with him for many years and he was always a pleasure to be around. He loved his family, especially his sons, he talked about them often.
So sorry to hear the news. It had been a couple of years since I last chatted with him.
Brenda, praying for you and all of Dwight's family.
