    Judy & I have such wonderful memories of Dwight & his dear wife Peggy. I would say that Dwight & Peggy were very instrumental in affirming my sense of call to the Gospel Ministry. They were so encouraging. I loved Dwight’s wonderful humor, his very distinct accent, and the genuine love that made him the Christian that he was. I know that he is with his Lord and his beloved Peggy. Martha, Judy & I love you and are praying for you as walk through this shadowed valley. We would do anything to be there with you for the service — but, feel it unwise due to this growing pandemic that is sweeping across the United States.
