Messages of Condolence

  1. 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
