Our grattitude for the service of this young Deputy. As the sister of a fallen NC Deputy, I know the grief of losing someone in the blink of an eye. You don't get to say good-bye and you don't understand why someone so giving has to leave so soon. The only thing I do know is that we miss them so much more than we can ever express. I feel that they are with us now always..everywhere. May your family and friends find comfort and My thoughts and prayers to each of you.

I am so sorry that this had to happen to you,
Deputy Sheriff Dawson, you were taken tragically and too young. You are a hero just by choosing this profession to keep us civilians safe and secure... To your family I hope and pray that you can punch a hole in this world and somehow let them know that you are safe and watching over them. I salute you, Sir... GodSpeed...

Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place. As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say its ok you’re with your eternal partners. A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
