Dwight was always there with a good joke, bible studies, and advice for life quandaries. He was the best roommate I've had. He will definitely be missed.

To Anne and the whole Peltier Family, there are no words to describe the loss of a son, or a sweetheart or just a friend. Dwight was one of the kindest most down to earth people I have ever known. I will never forget all the lunches and great conversations we shared,and the great benediction you shared with all of us that evening. You have certainly left those bits and pieces on the mosiac of my life.I will miss you forever, and so proud to be able to call you friend!!
