I won't be able to be there physically but I will be with you in spirit. I'm so sorry for not just your loss, but the loss of a great many people. Dwayne was a special little boy who grew to be a special man and I'll always remember him laughing and playing, teasing and joking. He wasn't even aware of the influence he had on others. He was just Dwayne. Love to all of you and remember the good times, the fun times, and the special times. He will be missed.

Family & Friends of Dwayne:
Not sure if you know me Angie, but Dwayne and I went to school together, graduated together. We were classmates, and I would see him occasionally at Hills of Home when he came in for lunch meat, exchanging small talk.
I am very sad and sorry for your loss; your husband, dad, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, friend. I have been thinking of you all; praying that God comforts you all as you come through this difficult time.
