I am so sorry to hear od Dwight's passing. This was such a terrible accident of which is unbeliable! Your family is in my thought and prayers. I knew Dwight due to we were in cardiac rehab together and really bonded! He was always joking me about planting cherios to grow glazed doughnuts. After class there were alot of days he'd tell me about being excited to go to his sisters house for lunch and the wonderful food he'd tell me she had prepared for him and his eyes would just beam! I would tell him he knew that food was not heart healthy!!! He truly was a great person that I am glad I got the pleasure of becoming his friend. He will be missed. Kim Sartain-Baggett

I am very sad about the loss of Dwight. He had a wonderful personality, always teasing about something or the other. He liked to laugh and make others laugh. He was my friend since we were little kids. We went all thru school together and have always kept in touch.My husband Kenny and I will miss him a lot. We have spent a lot of time sitting on his porch swing. Rest in peace, Dwight, my old friend. I miss you already.

I am so sorry for your loss as Dwight was so very special. I will miss Dwight's love of life. The laughter in his heart and soul. His beautiful smile. He was such a treasure. I was very blessed to say that I knew Dwight and doubly blessed to be a relative.
God called him home much to our sorrow.
