Our heartfelt sympathy to the family. Our brief meeting of Dwight (and Sally) was to sell the lake property on Fish Lake. We found him to be very kind. Lori, we will be forever grateful for that encounter. We are going into our 12th year there. We made many modifications to the mobile home, but are now in the process of building a new home, hopefully to be finished this spring.
Prayers for peace and comfort!

Butch and Deb Breedlove
