I will always remember the love that Mr. Dixon showed to so many people. I will never forget times that we went Evangelizing. Even giving advice to the single women on his team. He cared. He loved. He taughted. He listened. He was a man of action. Family you can be very proud of the legacy he left behind. I will always remember the things that he taught me.
