Dwight, oldest brother of the siblings. you sure lived a full life. You had a lot of highs, but you also had lows in life, and you survived them all. That's a strong trait for sure. Your marriage to Doloras was all you. & she, ever wanted and you both were good for each
other in every stage of life during those 50+ years. Real rest now; you will never be forgotten.
