I miss you Dad! There's so many things that I'd like to discuss with you and just dig deep into with you. The void is still there, BUT GOD! I actually CAN wait to see you, but look forward to seeing you when I get there. MAN - I MISS YOU SO MUCH!!!

Daddy, I miss you. There are so many things that I want to tell you about and I need your Godly advice. How I wish I could climb in the bed, get right up under you, put my head on your chest, and just listen to you breathe and that strong heart of yours beating. I know that you are doing just fine with our Heavenly Father. One day I will be with you and the Lord. Until then, I'll be obedient and allow the Lord to direct my path. I love you daddy.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace, taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it, Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him forever in the next. AMEN.
We love and pray for the family.
Diane, Uncle Ed and Family

Janice when I read this poem I thought of you and the children. May it be a comfort to you.
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace, Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it, Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen."
Love and praying for you, Diane, Uncle Ed and the Family. Hope to see you soon

Janice, we are here for you! We are so sad that Doug has passed, but he is no longer suffering and he is home now with Jesus. I will miss all the talks that Doug and I had about everything, from our faith, to children, to Wal-Mart, to the Mavericks and everything in between. You guys are a great example of what a Christian family should look like. We will miss you dearly Doug, rest in peace!

Doug was my Mentor and my friend. He taught me to use my Faith to positively affect my job, my store, and my fellow associates. I've kept his Safety Team picture and his badge in my locker since his retirement. I only wish I could have said goodbye and told him what a massive impact he had on my life. I'll see you in Heaven, my friend...

Doug, you were our neighbor and friend for many years, and a faithful servant of Christ. You and Janice are shining examples of what a great marriage should look like. We will miss you tremendously but take solace in knowing that you are in heaven. I will especially miss all of our late night conversations at WalMart.

Although we never met, Doug Jr. and I would always say we were related. (if you're black with a last name like Dawson, something was going on!♡) I'm s sorry we never had a chance to meet, but I wish nothing but love for the family. God bless you and I hope each of you find serenity in your hearts. To Doug Jr....."I'm here cousin!"

With your voice and smile in mind, I recall your teachings about finances, building websites and furthering the Kingdom. What a faithful husband, father, friend and servant of God. Thank you for revealing to a young me that God has a sense of humor; that Christians can have fun and be saved at the same time. Thank you for teaching me how to tithe properly. And thank you and Ms Janice for parenting me when I was so far away from home; you covered me as I discovered who I am in Christ. I’m sure your smile is lighting up Heaven. What a joy it must be to walk into the welcoming arms of Jesus; the one you've bragged to the whole world about. Heaven will never be the same - nor will we, because of the life of Douglas Dawson.
My prayers are with the Dawson Family. As you grieve, please know that so many people have come to Christ because of your family. You are currently walking in your purpose and living out a rich legacy. And even now, in the midst of your sorrow, you are witnessing to others.
