So sorry to hear about Dwight’s passing. He was far too young with so much to live for. It was a privilege for me to call Dwight a friend. We shared many an adventure together and I will always remember them as good times made so especially by Dwight’s sense of humour and his zest for life.
I regret that I am unable to be at the Fire Hall in Charleston on Friday night. While there will be sadness I hope that it is also a celebration, even a party. That would be Dwight’s style. Know that you are in our prayers.
