Dawson (ambush) appears to have had a seizure and passed on at the young age of 25.

I never met him in person, but we were good friends online.  I spoke to him via Skype and IRC several times a week, usually.  He was fun-loving and kind, and I will miss him terribly.

My sincerest sympathies to his family and his other friends.

Dawson was a great kid. Well loved by friends and family both.
We maintained our relationship after his mother and I had a divorce and he was always part of my life. Even recently as working at the same company here in Des Moines. Always playing in the RPG I run online. Never far from me at all.

Today, when I learned that he had passed away was a great shock. And a great loss as well. I miss dearly. My son, my friend.

Rest in Peace.

Oh wow...so sorry to hear that!  I remember ambush.  I didn't run into him all that often in the chatroom, but I enjoyed the few conversations we did have.  Sorry to hear about your loss, Bynw, and my condolences to the rest of his family as well.   :(

My deepest sympathy, Bywn, on the loss of your son.

Here is a truly great pic of Dawson at the Des Moines Renaissance Faire (I think that's the right name).

Love you, hun.

Oh, one other thing.  His name on this board was Rex_Kelsonus.  He was ambush everywhere else online, including in chat.

Bynw and Sarah (And by extension, Tika), I'm so sorry. This is just plain terrible. Ambush was indeed all the things Desert Rose said of him and his lease on Earth was far too short. I did not know him well, but liked him whenever he showed up in chat.  How very sad to never again be able to ambush Ambush.  :'(

I did not know Ambush personally, but always enjoyed him in chat when we happened to be there at the same time. Bynw, Sara and Tika I offer prayers and my condolences and hugs!!!

For whatever reason, it is in my mind that it would have been Dawson's 28th birthday today.

I just recently got to the point that I can listen to the playlists I made in his honor again without full-on crying, although I do get a little misty-eyed, especially at the songs I put on there because they would have made him laugh. 

Bynw, I never have been able to watch the DVD you sent.  (It was of Dawson's viewing and funeral, which I was unable to attend, due to it being in Des Moines and me being in Florida.)   :'(  I do still have it though.

ambush, if there's a way you can see this from whatever afterlife, I want you to know I still miss you, hun.

I miss seeing your name come up in the chatroom nick list, ambush.  Thinking of you on your birthday.   :)

I can't believe it's been four years since we lost ambush.

Still miss you, hun.
