Maybe this might be something that Dwight had in mind with his last blog post.
From September of 1980, I have a letter from him of which I am quoting a snippet.
"If you can think of anything else Mom would like or would enjoy please either go ahead and get it and let me share expense or let me know so we can sent it from here. There are so many things I have thought of over the years that I would like to send her and wish I could have or would have when she would have enjoyed them, but I don't think 'things' ever were that important to her, so at least maybe nothing has been lost. I worry about her being warm in the night in that house, with the heat turned down."
This is just such a lovely passage, full of loving emotion.
