    Dear Cohagan family,
    Dwight will be missed greatly be many. Dwight hired me in 1995 at The Sherwin Williams Company. I admired Dwight not only or his wisdom, intelligence, knowledge but also his kindness, compassion and caring personality. He taught me so much about work and life. I learned and grew under his direction and passed along those same things he taught me. His legacy lives on.
    My sincerest condolences to all of you.
    With a heavy heart I send you love,
    Liz Gilbert

    Dear Carol,

    Just wanted to convey my sympathy to you and your family. I never met Dwight, but you always spoke fondly of him. I know he must have been a very special person. I haven’t seen you in years, but I have good memories of our days together at the airport when you managed Comair and I worked for Delta. I will say a prayer for you and your family.

    Sorry to read of Dwight’s passing. I knew him at Sherwin-Williams, although we did not work together. He was always friendly when we saw each other in the halls and on the 51 bus to work.

    Dear Perry and the Cohagan family,
    So very sorry to hear of the passing of your father, Dwight. I pray that warm memories will bring some comfort. I never met your dad but recall with great fondness when your mom cheered you and the Padua hockey team to victory. The pride and love of family was evident. As I read the posts about your dad, it is eviident that he lived his life with integrity and was loved and respected. What an amazing legacy. So sorry. Heather Ross Scaglione
