Dwight introduced himself to me, a new student at Tucson High, on a stairwell and offered me some advice I've never forgotten. We became study partners later. I knew Dwight to be kind and caring. How fitting that he should work with and guide children. I was so looking forward to seeing him at our 50 year reunion. I am sincerely disappointed that cannot happen. The world was made better by his existence. We should all hope for such an impact. My condolences to his family. Cheryl Parks Grigsby
