Let the memory of Davon be with us forever

This memorial website was created in the memory of our son Davon Maurice Johnson-Dickson,born on March 8, 1989 to Albert Dickson & Monica Smith. Davon was a happy ang loving young man, I know all parents say that about their children, however, he was just that loving, kind, always wanting the best especially for his brothers, sister, nephews grandmother, family, friends and of course me and his dad. For those that knew Davon, we know he had his good and bad day's (most of us do) but for the most part he would have given his life for each one of us. Sadly his life was brutaly taken on May 31st, 2009 by San Bernardino Police Officer Alvarez. It has been a journey for me and my familly, the hurt and the healing is still a process, however, I know Davon would only want the best for us and that would be, to keep living as if he was still hear physically which is hard at times. My son wasn't able to see his daughter McKenzie Lynn, she is a smart and beautiful little girl, if I can do anything for her in honor to my son, it would be to start having a relationship with her and telling her about how special her dad was to me and so many others. As you visit this site, please leave a special note if you knew Davon, it helps our healing process to read all the great messages dedicated to him, and if you didn't know him and still want to leave a word of encouragemnt, I ask that you do so. Remember to love HARD because we never know when our last day with our loved ones will be. Rest In Paradise my son.

"I'm thinking of you today and of the tragic loss of your beloved and precious son Davon. Although I don't know you, please accept my heartfelt sympathy for you and your family in your painful loss of Davon. I had a different type of loss this past Sept, my very precious and beloved Mom died. So I know that our loss' and grief and pain are different, but I hope that something in what continues to bring me comfort will give you an added measure of comfort too. I think about the fact that my dear Mom isn't suffering, and that means a lot! And I look forward intently to the resurrection when I hope to be here to welcome my Mom back to life with a close and loving hug! These are verses that help a lot. Acts 24:15 promises the resurrection. Eccl. 9:11b 'time and unexpected events or (unforeseen occurrence) befall them all.' Eccl. 9:5, 10 'living conscious will die, dead conscious of nothing at all.' James 1:13 God doesn't cause sad things to happen to our loved ones. Isa. 65:17b when our loved ones are alive once again, we won't remember the pain we feel now. Rev. 21:4, 5 no death or pain. Psa. 37:9-11, 29 the meek will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace, righteous live forever on the earth. Rom. 15:4 comfort in the Scriptures. Take care, and again I'm very sorry for your loss. Sincerely Yours, Cindy Boyer"

"Davon you will never leave my heart. As another year passes without you i leave another tear for you. You were as close to perfect as a woman could ask for. Always thinking of others and wanting everyone to feel happy around you. No matter how many times we fought all I can see is your smile. The way you looked when you would say I love you. The way you spoke of your family, never wanting to be far from them. You were an exceptional man. You will be in the hearts of many forever. I cry harder the harder your memories make me smile. I just want to hold you and laugh with you again. I write letters to you all the time...it kinda makes me feel like Im actually talking to you. I hope to see you someday again.  I love you Booga. ALways and forever."

"Tomorrow marks your 25th Birthday, as I prepare my mind I get so sad, I try my best not to think your gone, but days like this reminds me that I won't see you and this isn't a dream. I miss you so much Davon and wish you could see all that your mom, dad, brothers, sister, family and friends have accomplished, I live in the BIG house you always said I deserved, I have 2 maybe 3 beautiful grandchildren, all girls one being yours the other is Sean's and Tray may also be a dad. I'm in a great relationship with a loving guy name Calvin, who has 3 beautiful children, Jasmine, Najee and Omarion. I love them all so much and I'm thankful God has allowed them to be in my life.  I know how much you loved your nephews and you would have loved your nieces, oh by the way your brother  AL, has a beautiful daughter. So much has happened in the last 5 years so much. I thank you for getting me out of bed when my granny died just 2 months before you were taken away, I remember you saying, come on Mom get out of bed and let's go for a walk,, grandma wouldn't want you like this, we went to Jack In The box and you brought me a shake. :-)  and made me smile.  I hold on to your words of encouragement and action to get me out of bed. With that being said, I know you would want the same for me now that your gone, many don't or didn't know this, but I keep going because you inspired me to after my granny died, so I keep going for you as well. I love you. Happy 25th Birthday son."

"Davon is my cousin. What I remember most about him is his smile.  growing up he had a smile that would light up a room, even when he was up to no good :)  from a child to a man he had the same smile.  
I love to see pictures of him just to see him smile. I know he is in heaven smiling down at all of us. I Love You Cousin."

"Davon changed my life forever. I will never forget how he made me get out of bed after my granny died, my son made me move forward with life and told me that's what my granny would have wanted. So today I continue to move forward making my son proud of his mommy. He always called me beautiful, but  it was him that had a beautiful spirit and heart."
