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.

Grandmom joined you a week ago. Yesterday was her funeral and it was such a hard day. We miss her so much! I know that you are so thankful to have her back with you, especially since today is Mother's Day. I am sure you have spent all this past week showing her around heaven. I am sure you have been showing her the ropes and all the great places to hang out with. I find comfort in knowing that she is back with you. I miss you both so much and life is never going to be the same without both of you. I love you!

Love, Kelly
