I will really miss you Dwayne. I met you years ago when we were in Search and REscue together. YOu taught me so much and you made the hard times during the searches more bearable with your sense of humor and your care for all of us. And Oh the Pizza.....during training events we could always plan on some great pizza. We remained friends thru the years and I will miss you so much. Give Geneal and Mica a hug for me. Love you all and so glad you are together again.
