KC.....Just to add some memories. While we were in college, Dwight invited me down to A&M for a weekend game. First time experience for me but everything started on Thursday till the game on Sat. Had a fun exhausting time that weekend. He said he would always wait till Sunday to study. I had to work harder for B. Dwight was just a smart A student from grade school up and through college.

KC - My heart hurts for you right now. I know how much you, Paul and Stephanie loved and cherished Dwight, and I know that will continue on long after his passing. Those left here on Earth have such a hard time understanding why things have to happen like this, but those of us that believe in and love Christ know that his passing is not the end. You will see him again. Such a blessing to know that even though he's gone, we don't have to say goodbye. You know to let me know if you need anything. Our friendship has spanned 15 years so far, and I look forward to many more. Love you. - Clarissa

Dwight was a quiet, unassuming man with a friendly and cheerful spirit. His life was focused on his family and he was such a loving husband and dad. I was blessed to be visited by him and KC a few months ago while in the hospital. I'm so glad I had that last visit with him.

Sweet KC,

My heart hurts for you, as I heard the news about your husband. With as much love as you showed all of us at Kimbrough over the years, I can hardly imagine the level of care you provided at home. I have no doubt that his heart was filled by it. I'm praying for you as you enter this new chapter in your life. I know it won't be easy, but please know that your KMS family, both present and past, are here for you if you should need anything. It's the least we can do after all that you have done for us.

KC, I was so very saddened to learn of Dwights passing. Dwight was such a wonderful person! He was a truly GOOD person, a rare soul not often found in our world these days. I always thought of you two as the perfect couple. You both would meet each day with a passion for life and a willingness to help others. Even though its been years since Ive seen you and your family I think of you all often and remember the great times we shared. My heart and prayers are with you, Paul and Stephanie. I love you all my dear friend.

I am so so sorry for your loss. I am thinking about you and your family through this time. Just know you have huge support around you because of the person you are and will help or be there for anything you need. Still remember the first day I had to ask you, "hey do you know who that pickup belongs to? been watching for a min now and it is just sitting in the middle of the parking lot". KC we all love you and are here for support through this time.

The Jones Family was a huge part of my life growing up. Dwight and KC treated me like I was one of their own. Dwight was a kind and sweet person who always had a joke for me and always offered to lend an ear. I was so sad to hear of his passing. He will be greatly missed as he was a bright soul and a special person. The world is a lesser place. I want to send my love and heartfelt prayers to KC, Paul and Stephanie.

KC,
I am so heartbroken for you, your family, and everyone who was blessed by knowing Dwight. I never got the opportunity to meet him, but I can only imagine how incredible he is to have won and kept your heart for over 40 years. You are an amazing person- passionate, hardworking, caring, and the epitome of strength.
But one thing the Lord has been teaching me is that its okay to be a strong person and to have times when you dont feel strong. To have times when you just have to focus on getting through the day one hour at a time. And I am praying this, and much more, for you and your son Paul. That the Lord would provide the strength you need each hour. And that you both would feel His peace and comfort and presence during this time of intense grief.

Dear KC, Stephanie, and Paul,
Dwight was a kind, considerate person who always had time for others. He cared for all of you very deeply .
I remember his laugh and the way he smiled while crossing his arms in front of his chest. He always had time to stop and talk to me if I saw him while taking my early morning walks in the neighborhood.
He will be missed.

I know you are very loved and I can't imagine walking in the door of Kimbrough and not seeing you to start my day. We depend on you for so many things. You take of eveyone--staff, kids and parents. Just know we care and we are there for you.

I will be praying for you and your family. Please know that I am here for you.

I was saddened to hear the news about Dwight. Although I have know you for many years, I think I would always just catch a glimpse of him when he visited you at work, but I saw the love and joy he left on your face. You shared that joy it with all of us. I am praying for you and your family. I am hoping that you find strength in the days to ahead, to continue sharing Dwight's joy.

Love always

My love, KC, you know my heart. I can honestly say, I loved hearing you speak about Dwight. He seemed to be such a caring, knowledgeable and loving man. I could tell that there was so much love there between you two and it made me feel so good knowing that you had him and he had you (bc you know how much I like to keep tabs on you to not overwork yourself and yet youre grown and do what you want, lol). I strongly believe that you STILL have him. God wont allow for you not to feel his spirit or love surround you still. My heart hurts for you, Paul and Stephanie and I will continue praying for peace and strength for three of you and the rest of Dwights family and friends. I love you so much!
