By Saturday, funeral arrangements were being pieced together on the Mount Vernon community Facebook page, with hundreds sharing stories and videos.

Dwight was one of over 2,500 homeless men, women and children living in Baltimore, but for the Mount Vernon community, he was also a friend.

“We would be like here waiting for the bus and he would just come up like every day,” Maggie Jones said.

Jones said she saw him every day after school.

“He just felt like our friend it really just felt like this is our friend who we see and talk to every day,” Jones said.

“I passed him every day on my way to work and sometimes he’d walk with me for a couple of blocks downtown.” Noah Patton said.

Patton is now helping plan Dwight’s funeral.

“So that we can give him a good Christian burial, which I think Dwight would want,” Patton said.
