Elder Dawson Returns with Honor! January 4, 2012
Dawson flew home via Salt Lake City and arrived at the new St. George Airport at 4:15 pm. He was scheduled to arrive at 4:30 and luckily we were there a little early. His plane was actually landing and we pulled into the parking lot. We were able to get positioned and welcome him as he came into the building. A high school buddy, Bryan Lunt, came in on the same plane returning from his mission. Dawson rode from San Jose to SLC with an old companion, Elder Simmons.
It is so wonderful to have him home again. We all went up to Pres. Topham's house and he released Dawson. We could just feel the spirit of the release. It was both joyful and sad for Elder Flake to take off his badge that he has worn faithfully for two years!
Well done thou good and faithful servant!
