    Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. According to Dwayne's testimony, this is what he was. We are sad that he had to leave but,the Lord is happy that one of his saints has come home. We know we will see him again when it is our time to go home. Love and prayers to family and friends. Uncle Carlyle & Aunt Juanita

    May you find the courage to face tomorrow in the love that surrounds you today. At this time of sorrow may these truths sustain you.....your father will always be as close as a memory and the God of all comfort is always as close as a prayer. Even thought words can't take away the sorrow that you're feeling. I hope you find serenity in knowing that your care, love and courage have meant so much to the one you love. And that somehow in some small way, that makes a difference and bring you peace....I have fought the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.-2Timothy 4:7. As for me, I will lie down that I may sleep; I shall certainly awake, for Jehovah himself keeps supporting me. -Psalms 3:5

    Dear Family, Dwayne is my cousin. I have so many sweet memories of him and his brothers outside running around playing when we would go to visit. I am so thankful that as they all became men the bond of brotherhood was always strong.That is a testament of how your parents raised you all. Your family is such a beautiful example of how families should be. I will keep all the family in my prayers . God is Good, God is perfect. He makes no mistakes. We may not understand why,but someday your sweet family will know why. I pray the Lord meets every need and give you all sweet comfort. I love you all.
