Dear Family, please accept my deepest condolences. May God comfort your hearts as you face this difficult time. Please be comforted by God’s loving promise at Acts 24:15. You are in my prayers.
With deepest sympathy in your time of sorrow. Lean on our Lord & He will give you peace. Amen
Thoughts and prayers for you all to find peace in God’s mighty grace.
My heart breaks for your family, I lost both my boys in 2014. The pain is never bending.
Dearest Nancy, Olivia, and Kenny….we are so very sorry we could not be there with you to honor Tyler today. We enjoyed the time we spent with him last Nov at your home and again later at J and Sarahs. Such a fine young man. We were getting ready to leave this morning and checked flood conditions and saw roads were being closed and since we don’t know the area that well we decided we’d better not try it. But our hearts were certainly there with you. And will continue to be always. May peace and comfort come to you from the One who supplies all our needs. Our love….Fran and Dale
Nancy you are in my heart and prayers
I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope you find comfort in Jesus words at John 5:28,29. There Jesus promised a resurrection of our loved ones. This beautiful hope can sustain us during times of grief.

Through your posts it’s evident he inherited many lovely personality traits from both of you. Also evident is how much he loved those around him and how he was dearly loved.

Kenny, Nancy and Olivia,
I am not able to write words to comfort you during such a devastating loss. As a parent I know your heart is broken and the pain unrelenting. I just cannot express in words the deep sorrow I feel in my heart. So many in this community are sorrowing with you, praying for you and loving you. There is only One that can comfort and He knows your agony, sees every tear, hears every sigh and why and the words you cannot speak. Much love and prayer. Matthew 22:31,32
Kenny I am so sorry for yous and Olivia loss. My prayers and love are with you. No one knows how hard it is to lose a child. It hurts so very much. Our faith is what carries us on.
Again prayers and love to all of you.

We love you and we mourn your loss. Always praying for you and your family.
My heart goes out to Nancy, Kenny, and Olivia. Tyler’s love for his family was evident to everyone. His love for God was an inspiration to me and I know he is now in heaven.
Kenny, Nancy, and Olivia, I wish I could wrap you in hugs. We are praying for you and grieving with you. We are so sorry.
Our hearts are breaking for you at the loss of Tyler! May you feel the peace and comfort of God at this time. Our prayers are going up in your behalf.
Your and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this time.
Kenny and Nancy,
We will be out of town on Saturday so we will not be able to see you, hug you, and tell you that we love you. Our hearts weep for you. Our brains are like yours in understanding. We will be holding you in our hearts and minds in the coming months and years as we continue to pray for you and your family, our Church, our High School, and our community. God Bless You and Keep You, Dear Friends.
Nancy, Kenny, and Olivia,
My heart and soul ache for you and with you.
May the Peace that passes understanding flood over you every moment.
Praying the Great Comforter embraces you.
Unus Per Fraternus
Much love Kenny Nancy and Olivia. We are praying for you and you’re loved by your old friend.
You were a model of joy, gentleness and wisdom when you graciously extended kindness to me as a young college freshman. I felt so proud when you were named my mentor just to be associated with you. I imagine that grace remains in the woman you are now. I am so sorry for the darkness around you and the path that lies before you. May God send kind, wise, gentle people to wrap you in His love.
So sorry for your loss! Father, surround your dear ones with many people of compassion and grace! Make your presence felt in a mighty way during their time of deep grief. We trust in the One who feels our sorrow. Jesus weeps, too! John 11:35

My words are meaningless in times like this but please know you are all in my prayers, thoughts, and in my heart during this time.
Words can not express the sorrow I feel for your loss. May the Lord hold you close and comfort you and your family.
Nancy and Olivia,
My heartbreaks for you two girls. Know, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Anything Mike and I can do for you anytime, please ask. We love you both.
Mike and Kelli Morrow
Words just don’t seem adequate at a time like this, but I am so sorry and heartbroken to hear of Tyler’s passing! Love and prayers sent to the entire Dodson family.
I am so very sorry and sad for your loss. You were, by far, my daughters (Liz Gurley) favorite teacher at Motlow. She still speaks of you and her speech class. Please know many prayers for your family are going out for the loss of your son. This pain can only be relieved by all your wonderful memories. Keep all of those close in your heart. Again, we are so sorry!
Lenace Hyde Vaughn

Words can’t express my sorrow. I can’t take this pain away but I can love you and pray with you and for you. May the Lord warp his loving arms around you and give you peace. I love you all.
You are lucky that he chose to spend the time he had here with you. He will be dearly missed, but he will be with us all again when we go to join him. I’m so very sorry for your loss, Kenny. May your heart be as strong as your love for Tyler.
We have no words to express how sorry we are. We love you guys and our hearts are hurting for you. We pray for peace and comfort in the days and years to come.
