In memory of Samuel Lamar Dixon

On June 10, 2017, my son’s father, Samuel Lamar Dixon, was murdered—lost to gun violence in Syracuse, New York. The morning after seeing off his beautiful Deana to her senior prom, five days before his son’s thirteenth birthday, and an hour after dropping his daughter off to work.

We are forever grieved and heartbroken.
