Not sure what to say?

I am very sorry we were unable to "return the favor," so to speak, on coming down like you did for coming UP when Marla passed; you have been in our thoughts for a long time.

uncle "d", guess i have to look up now & tell u what i wanted/needed to say becuz u had to fly away sooner than we wanted & sooner than i could get there, but thats ok because you are in the best place ever & u hurt nomore! i wanted to say thank you for being an awesome/cool uncle too me, talking to me when i thought i was lost coming down to get matty but turned out i wasnt lost i was actually 30 minutes away & you talked to me the rest of the way keeping me...

It really hit home today that Dwight was gone. I was outside digging in my flower beds. Every time Dwight would see me out there, he would mosey over and tell his "honey" I was working too hard! I miss that, and I miss him...he was a wonderful man and super neighbor.

I didn't know Dwight very well, but from what I saw he was a very sweet man. He would always ask me about how my schooling was going, always smiled, always had on a WSU shirt, and always called me "kiddo." He will be missed.

"Those we love don't go away, They walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved, still missed, and very dear. ~Unknown~" ----Thinking of all of Dwight's family at this sad time of loss, but remembering the good times when we were growing up.

Dwight was always a bright spot in our days when he would come in to Washers to pick up orders. We miss him and his stories. He was a wonderful man.

Well dad There are so many things I wanna say but there is not enough space, time, or tears. The thing I want you to know is THANK YOU for being the most amazing DAD I could ever ask for. You were always there for me even when I did'nt deserve it. I will miss you so much but you have prepared for this time and I will make you proud. I LOVE YOU DAD

I will always remember sitting around and listening to a good story Dwight was telling. He could grab the whole room's attention. Your own conversation would end just so you could hear the ending to Dwight's story. I will miss him and our Perry family gatherings will never be the same. We will miss you Uncle Dwight.

I will always remember Dwight with great fondness. We had many good talks and good times together. All my love and prayers are with you even though I can't be there in person. May you feel the Lord carrying you through this time of loss. I love all of you so much.
