Closure for Knuckles DawsonSome of you have already heard. Some of you will be bombarded with the news for the next few days.

We are thankful that the prayers for discovery made by everyone during this time have been answered. It is with deep sadness that we must let you all know that David's body was discovered on June 20 near Ambleside Park. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their prayers, support and compassion. David was an exceptional, bright, caring and loving young man. We consider ourselves blessed to have had him in our lives, and are comforted knowing that he is now embraced in the arms of our Lord.
Love, Daryl, LeeAnn and Danielle.


At this time, let the family mourn in private. @AprilFire will keep me posted on possible public memorial arrangements.

You all have been a tremendous help in spreading the word. Your love, support, well wishes, and hope have been worth more than you may realize. Your support has touched the family deeply. They appreciate what we have done and how much we care. Every like, upvote, repost, retweet meant the world to the Dreger family.

Do not think for a moment that all of this has been in vain. In fact, I'm calling on you all to what you all have helped us accomplish in the last 4 weeks. I'm asking you to spread the word. Let people know that his body was found and he will be put to rest. Let the communities know that it's time to heal. Remind your fellow human beings that are people out there who care. Let the world know that we remember our friend Knuckles.

It is unfortunate that the end result was not the result that we all hoped for. They will be missed, even by those of us who never got to meet them in person. May our thought, condolences, and prayers offer whatever comfort they may in these times.

I have some neat photos of Knuckles from RTX last year, but our media server busted last night. This one was, by far, the best in my collection locally

I'm so sorry to know he is truly gone.
I didn't really know of him until he went missing, as I am slow to socialize with any group, even one as wonderful as this. I still do not know many of you incredible folks as well as I should yet.
It pains me to know that someone so important to people I admire and care for is gone from this world.

The impact this has had, and the response of this community, has been inspiring.
My thoughts are with his family, and all those who's lives he touched.

I only knew him by name and maybe a few youtube videos, but this is very saddening news. All life is precious, but when It's someone from a close knit community like RT it makes it all that much harder.

I wish all of his friends and families best wishes and hope for a swift recovery from this tragic event.

My prayers and tears go out to you all.
