Alonzo Alexander Dawson

Alonzo Alexander Dawson Alonzo Dawson was a 24-year-old young man who lived life to the fullest. He died on April 2nd 2016. He was many different things to many people. He was a son, a brother, uncle, nephew, grandson, friend, soulmate and the list goes on. Although he passed away way too young, he lived a life full of joy, happiness and pranks. Yes, there were moments of pain and sadness but he still managed to get through it with a smile and a smart remark. Alonzo died doing something he loved, so, we should not view his death as a loss but rather a privilege to have known him. Alonzo will forever be in our memory; he has left a handprint in all our hearts. We should mourn his death not with sadness and grief, but with the memory of the good times we all shared with him. The family would like to thank everyone for all the prayers and love during these trying times. We should all strive to stick together and continue to love Alonzo for the person he was.

I don't even know where to start he was that brother that made fun of me all the time but I always knew it was out of love. He made me tough . He taught me the love of video games . He was boxing instructor how many little sisters could say that. So many memories I have I don't know where to start he was the only kne who came to my tennis games. He came to every band concert that I played in. Whenever I called when I needed help he was there. This is still very hard for me to swallow because it still seems unreal that he's gone. I fight back my tears everyday because I know he wants me to continue being the strong woman I am today. I remember when j was little and we would stay in the city and we would sneak to central park pool just to go swimming. He taught me to swim. I was so scared but he kept telling me that he got me don't be a punk lol. And he did. And I know he always will protect me.

My cousin Alonzo...just typing your name brings flashbacks of our summers growing up together. As the cousin who lived in Belize, I only saw you for a few months each year but we had so much fun along with our other cousins. We'd make bets about which one of us could stay up until the sun comes up, and you'd always win. We play pranks at the pool together, you'd laugh at my accent. Man, cuz, I love you sooo much. I'm just remembering hugging you and you laughing at how short I am. I'll never enjoy New York the same way...never...I can remember us walking through Harlem, just talking about life and our plans for the future... about me taking you to Belize and when you said " i'm not going there with the old folks...NAW!," or you coming to Taiwan to see me...life...is so unpredictable. You will never know how much I will cherish my 26th birthday when you surprised me with your visit and gave me a lecture about my dating, lol.. You are one of the most sweetest, realest and genuine people I've ever met in my life! It hurts to write this....it hurts to know that I didnt get to see you, I read our last message and it feels so surreal. I will never forget you...never. The love I have for you, Alonzo....it will never change or end. Please don't do too much pranks in Heaven and know that when it's my turn to go on your side, you better come meet me and i know what you'll say "You think I'm not gonna come and see you? yea right!" You was and will always be my favorite. <3 Janell

Alonzo was just an amazing person all around. Funny, sweet, adventurs. He was my soulmate. We had our ups and downs just like any other relationships but the love always remind the same. This breaks my heart to know he isnt here physically but i know for sure he will always be in my heart without a doubt. His smile though lol i would tell him his smile is what caught my attention, and his high pitch laugh always made me laugh. My favorite things where our everyday lifestyle, id come home at 5 from work, while he was playing his video games I would cook dinner then we both watch a movie and go to sleep so that he could go to work but I made sure I lay down with him every night at 8 o'clock even though it sounds like an old lady he always told be that i better had. He was truly the perfect guy. Tall dark and handsome with a toughness to him. I definitely felt protected. I know that he will continue to protect me. Alonzo i love you from the bottom of the sea to the top of the moon (insider) lol. No matter what happens with the rest of my life you will always be number 1. The title is Beauty and the Beast because it's truly how our story was although he was a handsome beast lol. He was just very tough and cold hearted at times but I showed him it was okay to love and he showed me that it was okay to be tough and cold hearted when need be. I can go on for days. I still cant believe this but he is still with me talking $**t as he did lol. I love you papii always and forever.
