Sonja, we are so sorry to hear about Dwaine’s passing. We’re so glad for the time we spent at the park playing bingo with both of you. Dwain will be missed. Peace be with you Sonja.
Sorry for your lost Sonja .
Dwain worked with my dad, Jack Green at Shamrock until Daddy’s-passing and Daddy thought a lot of him. They tinkered with cars and other odd-jobs when they weren’t working at the plant. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others are telling you is right, wrong or indifferent. Travel the pathway our Lord has ahead for each-of-you, there are no pathways for all but individual-ones for each. From experience of a widow for 19-years this summer, I can tell you as a widow to cling tightly to our Lord’s-unfailing and unchanging hand, I won’t tell you it will be easy but He will not fail you ever. May He bless each-of-you with comfort, peace and memories.
Dwain was a great man n has a wonderful daughter. My condolences to the family. May God comfort you all during these difficult times.
