    Dear Sadie I was deeply saddened to hear about the death of Dwight. I know how difficult this must be for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Dwight was a very interesting and fun person to be around. I remember after I moved to Wilmington, Dwight soon became my friend. Both you and Dwight extended a helping hand to Pamela and I and treated us as family. This made our move to Wilmington much more enjoyable then it would have been. May God bless you and your family during this time and always. Roland & Pamela Robinson

    I share with you all in the loss of Dwight. He was my friend. I've never been around him that he didn't make me laugh. He knew how to be the perfect host - he always made me feel comfortable in his home. And, of course, I will miss playing Spades with him - nobody can replace him.
