To My Uncle George:
Even though my father, John D Dozier, your nephew, son of your sister Erma H Lawson Dozier, never
knew you he talked about you. When cleaning out our late mother’s house my sister and I found a newspaper article about you and your end of watch so many years ago this week. We thank you for
service as a first responder that caused you to give your full measure in the protection of the community and we can only imagine the sorrow felt by the family at your loss.
On a recent trip to locate family grave sites in Kansas City, we found yours, your parents, and your other sisters final resting place. I also learned that you are also my Masonic Brother in addition to being my Great Uncle. Even though we have lost all contact with the Lawson family please note the family name lives on as my sister’s first name is Lawson after our grandmother. Perhaps someday I may be able to meet my fellow Lawson cousins.

Most Sincerely,
John T Dozier
Quincy, IL

John T Dozier
Great nephew
