    To the Dwyer family,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

    A few of my favorite memories . . . the fun and laughter between our row of cabins, boat rides, the building of my parents cabin and the video, the “job supervisor”, installing the sprinkler system, watching the kids play, watching the dogs play, fishing, campfires, Hawaiian parties, gardens and flowers . . . .

    To a fantastic man who was considerate, caring, compassionate and always kept us laughing!! You will be greatly missed!
