I remember Uncle Dwight carrying me on his shoulders when I was young on Cooper St. Those were fun times. Then when he and the family came out to Colorado for a visit with us. A phone call when mom was in the hospital and he tried talking me into coming to Cat for a buyer position. And then there were the facebook chats. I'm so bummed that we couldn't get together due to the long distance between Colorado and Illinois but I'll see him in heaven! What an ornery passionate in his beliefs, and loving human being. I love you Uncle Dwight! Until we meet up again!♥
My prayers to everyone!
