Judy, I know it is very difficult for you losing your partner of 50 years. I remembered how happy Dwight was when he met you. When seeing you two together years after your marriage you still acted like newlyweds. That was so precious you were so happy together. Then fathering two daughters on top of that had to have made him so proud. I grew up with Dwight and Charlene on E. Genesee & Phelon Sts in Saginaw. My condolences to the rest of the family members. Dwight was a wonderful, caring, kind person. A great loss for all of us that knew and loved him. He and Charlene were a great part of my childhood. Very fond memories. Thank you Dwight!
