Dear Aunt Shirley, Nancy, Doug and the rest of the family
I was stunned when I found out Uncle Dwight had passed. I thought he had more time. Thankfully, he was ready to be with the Lord and see other loved ones already in heaven! I know all of you miss him dreadfully.... cling to your wonderful memories. All of you are in my thoughts & prayers.
Love,
