Every Sunday morning during my childhood I would pass Dwayne as I walked home from Sunday school and he was walking to church. When I was 11 or 12 Sharon was helping me pierce my ears by a peculiar at home method of wearing this ear piercer and squeezing it every day until you finally had holes in your ears. One Sunday when Dwayne and I passed he asked me in that distinctive midwestern drawl of his, “You got holes in your head yet?” As a child I thought that was the funniest thing I’d ever heard.
My deepest condolences for your loss.

Our deepest sympathies to Dwayne's family and friends. Dwayne was one of the nicest people I've met, and an integral part of his church. I know he leaves a void in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. Rest well Dwayne in the arms of the Heavenly Father and know peace.
