David Dreger/Knuckles Dawson

About a month ago, some of you may have noticed that I made a post asking you to spread the word that David Dreger (also known to some as KnucklesDawson) had gone missing.

I wish I had better news for anyone who has followed this, but last night his sister updated the community:

We are thankful that the prayers for discovery made by everyone during this time have been answered. It is with deep sadness that we must let you all know that David’s body was discovered on June 20 near Ambleside Park. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their prayers, support and compassion. David was an exceptional, bright, caring and loving young man. We consider ourselves blessed to have had him in our lives, and are comforted knowing that he is now embraced in the arms of our Lord.
Love, Daryl, LeeAnn and Danielle.

I am so sad to hear about the results of nearly a month of searching for David. My heart aches for his friends and family, but I hope they can take some solace in knowing that whatever torment was going on in his mind/life that he is beyond that now and has found peace.
If I could I would hold you all and never let go and make everything ok for you.
They say time heals all wounds. I’m not sure that it’s true, but time does take away the sting after a while – just know that one day you’ll be able to think back on all the stories you have of David with a smile that won’t end in tears.
He’s up there, all around, looking out for his friends and family now.

 

Please know that if you are going through a dark time, you are not alone, and there are people who care about you. It is ok to reach out for help. In this whole universe you are unique, and it would be a shame to end your story too soon.

 

And if you have lost someone, it’s ok to reach out too – to let people know that you’re hurting, and missing someone you loved. It’s ok to give yourself space. But don’t not mourn – mourn in a way that is the best for you. Don’t let your world stop, although sometimes it seems impossible to think that it could go on. Take it day by day. You will never stop missing that person, but remembering them will stop hurting so much.

 

With all my love, internet.
