My sincere sympathy to Bill and Chris with the passing of their father. Many fond memories as a neighbor and friend that I will have forever.

So sorry to hear about your dad. We are in Florida, and can't attend Dwight's service, but you have our sympathy, thoughts and prayers

I was a classmate of Dwight. He was such a kind, thoughtful and engaged person.
He had such an impact on welcoming people to our class reunions. So much so that my husband feels his loss also.
Dwight was a genuine, trustful individual. May these qualities give you comfort. Paula

I am so sorry for your loss . I pray your memories will bring you comfort .
