We loved Dwight as part of our family. We will all mIss him. Lei looked to him as a grandfather and I won't know what to do without him giving me a hard time for mowing when it's so hot!

Luke Rawlings, September 2, 2015 When I think of Dwight, I remember going to the Methodist Chirch in Princeton when I was visiting Mother and Frank. He always greeted all of us and loved his wonderful smile. Dwight was good to our family. God bless him and his great family! Dan Wiser, September 2, 2015
