Officer Richard Lawn succumbed to injuries sustained four days earlier when he was involved in an automobile accident on McKean Road.

Officer Lawn was responding to the scene of a fire when a deer ran into the side of his patrol car. The impact caused the patrol car to go out of control and strike a utility pole. Officer Lawn was able to exit the patrol car on his own power and was taken to a local hospital. He was transported to a second hospital before being released to go home. He collapsed at home the following day and died as a result of the injuries.

Officer Lawn had served with the 18-person Lower Gwynedd Police Department for 15 years. He is survived by his wife, son, and three daughters.

In less than two months I am getting married! :) Its hard to believe that you will not be there to walk me down the aisle. I asked Mom and Connor to walk me down the aisle, but no one could ever take your place. I know that you will be there in spirit, but it's not the same... I have a charm for my bouquet, so at least your picture will be walking with me.

I really wish that you could have met Tyler. He is such a great guy and I know that you two would get along so well! He makes me so happy and I know you're proud of him, as well. I can only hope he's half as great of a husband and father as you!

Please keep watching out for me and helping me get through this crazy, roller coaster of a time that I am currently in. I love you so much and miss you every day!
