Words cannot express my grief at hearing of Dwight’s death way too soon. My heart goes out to his wife, children, grandchildren and siblings and I offer my condolences to all. Dwight served on the aircraft carrier USS Forrestal, during the Vietnam war, during one of the worst naval disasters in US history. I remember well all the years I knew him. Dwight has *never* been forgotten by me. I am heartbroken and pray for the family’s grief at the loss of such a wonderful, good, good man.
