Jeanne called me in about January of this year and I found out then that Dawson had gone to be with the Lord. I was a bit in shock. Even though I hadn't seen or talked to Dawson since his Dad's funeral I have known him all my life. He's my first cousin. I and Troy and our parents visited Buster and Jeanne and the boys several times a year when I was growing up. And they would visit us as well.

It was always fun to visit them in Athens. Jeanne always had good food to eat, was in a cheerful and uplifting mood, and us boys were always up to something. Things didn't change much when we grew up. The families kept in touch and visited until our parents passed. Then it became phone calls.

I'll always have good memories of Dawson. I will miss you Cousin. I trust you are in good hands now with God and enjoying eternity with Him.

My thoughts and sympathies are with his family. God bless you all.

''Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and loved ones during this incredibly difficult time." We have the fondest memories of battling it out for first chair Trumpet, the man was a beast with that horn and super tough to beat. God bless you.
