SO SORRY PEYTON AND LEWIS FOR YOUR LOSS IF YOU NEED ANYTHING PLEASE LET THE GANG AT THE BAIT SHOP KNOW
I was so saddened to hear of the passing of my dear friend Dwain. I worked with him at Little Sisters, before he retired. He will be greatly missed by all. I will continue to pray for Tina and his family. May God continue to give you all strength through this time.
Dwain was my cousin. I wish we had had more contact as adults. It was mostly brief visits at our grandparents in Charlottesville, and playing at family reunions at the Green Lantern Motel in West Virginia when we were kids. I just realized Dwain shared our grandfather’s middle name, Overton. I pray that God will bless Dwain’s family and give them comfort and strength.
