Dwayne was a special person to everyone he met. He and his smile could never be forgotten. I'm sure Dwayne is getting everything in order in heaven along with his friend Sue Sizemore. We know you are okay Dwayne and we will do the best we can here. Save us a place my friend. You will be so missed.

Dewayne was always so sweet, always smiling and I always enjoyed running into him at Walmart. He would catch me up on his pets, his family of which I know and love and his happy smiles were always a welcome site!
I am so sad to know that I will no longer run into that smiling face again here on earth but I know for sure that I will see him again! He is probably smiling more than ever as he enjoys walking the streets of gold in Heaven!
Sweetie, you will truly be missed!
