Ring family, my deepest sympathy on the passing of Dwight. What a special person he was, and always had that contagious, kind, and caring smile. Dwight will be greatly missed by the community, because he cared and worked hard at many activities. Heaven has certainly gained an awesome angel, and may God bring peace and comfort to all of you during this most difficult time. In Christian Love, Pandora
