As you may have heard, on April 15, 2017 my son David "DJ" Lawson's life was taken before his time in a senseless act of violence. DJ was the best son a mother can ask for.
Friends and Family talk about his smile that could brighten your day, how considerate he was, how he treasured me "mom", his younger brother and sister.
He was the kindest person I ever met. He did what was right because it was right. He was protective of those he loved, and compassionate of those he did not.
I have never heard him say one bad word about another human being. If you ever met a kinder person, I challenge you to prove it.
He was a sophomore at Humboldt State University studying criminal justice where he would have used his degree to help the voiceless in the community.
The world has lost a bright and shining star. Please continue to pray for me and my family as we go through this unbearable loss.
DJ  was recently appointed President of BU(Brothers United) at Humboldt University, and was an excellent upstanding student.  
The funds collected for DJ will go towards bringing DJ home and funeral services and expenses.
