Takes a special person to wear this badge. This young man was special. Praying God will ease the pain the family is feeling and also his broken hearted family of the Sheriffs force. God be with each and every one who knew and loved him and help them through the days ahead, Amen....

It always hits home when any officer young, old, new or veteran loses his/her life in the service of his fellow man, but i believe it hits even harder when its an officer of such young age and service. It takes a special kind of person to lay down those things most dearest to us, only to go out and protect those things most dearest to others. To Davids family and department, rest easy knowing that David answered that calling. Deputy Jennings, you are a hero. May you rest in peace.

May your family, friends and co-workers find the strength and peace they will need at this time. You will never be forgotten.

God Bless Deputy Dawson, his family and friends. I might share with you some words which have sustained me through long dark nights of peril, loss and heartache and I quote; "I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom."
