"And, I want my family and every family here to know that somehow, someway, that we're gonna get through this, each and every one of us, as a community, because we have to and it's what Dad would want," Redd said. "It's what our families would want and we love you, Daddy."

"God bless each and every one of you," Redd added. "And thank you for being here."

Lawson graduated from Rossville High School and called well-known Chattanooga businessman, Rick Davis, "Dad."
