  1. He was one of a kind. In the 5 years that I have known Dwight we have become very close friends.
    I am not real sure what he thought of us duck hunters but he
    tolerated us. He would even call me at my home in Tennessee to tell me which field was holding ducks.
    I will miss our trips around the Prarie
    almost as much as I will miss him.

  2. I am so very sorry for your loss. May God hold you and your family in the palm of his hand and give you strength and comfort in your time of sorrow. Love you and your family.

    We will be lifting you all up in
