Our hearts go out to you and your family. One of my fondest memories is a a Registrar's Christmas parties and there were a few older men..my Dad's age and I had the pleasure of dancing with a couple of them, one was Dwain, and it was so much fun. Chuck knew he couldn't compete when it came to dancing, but he still remembers it to this day. He was envious of Dwain and the others who "could cut a run". Take care and we'll talk soon. Stay strong. Love Chuck and Ann

I will always remember Dwain's smile at PG&E. A prayer has been said in his honor. May all the wonderful memories keep him alive in your hearts.

Barbara Campbell phoned today which was much appreciated. We are both dealing with health issues which prevent us attending the scheduled services. Though our bodies will not be present tomorrow our minds will.
