Don't me to sound dense but who are the Lawson's and what has happened? I've lived here for over 30 years but I don't know that name. Again, I'm not trying to be cold or nosy, just don't know exactly who I'm praying for.

They are from Huntsville, but she has worked at the Walls and also goes to other units like Goree.
The family was in a head on collision in New Mexico on friday. Ms. Julia Lawson, her son and daughter in law and 2 young grandchildren were killed at the scene. Her husband is in critical condition. She is well known by many people in the prison system. I am not sure what her husband's occupation was. She has at least one daughter that lives in Huntsville. I do not know if she has anymore children. The story in the Huntsville Item.

Sorry to hear about Mrs. Lawson. She was well liked at the Walls unit. We will miss her. Such a tragedy for the whole family.

I just read the article in the Item. So terrible. One never knows when they leave home if something like this will happen. Such a tragedy.

I am saddened. I did not know the families involved, all I could do was pray and cry as I drove through roswell on my way to ruidoso the day of the accident. I truly have no understanding of what the families must be going through, may you in time find peace and understanding, may the communities involved come together to offer support.

Man what a tradegy? You know we are so fortunate for each day we are given because none of us are guaranteed the next. My wife and family and I will pray for this family and ask that God will send His Holy Spirit to comfort the rest of their extended family.

It is times like this that let's us know that we need to remember to start off everyday with your wife and kids with a "big hug and a I love you....." because we don't know what tomorrow holds. I could not imagine and I will especially remember this husband in my prayers tonight.

Julie Lawson was a classy, smart, funny lady that will be greatly missed by those of us that had the priviledge of working with her and knowing her.

This does let us know that we are not guaranteed a tomorrow. We need to let the people that are close to us, and we care about know how much they mean to us. Every moment is a gift.

Very sad news. I do not know them, but my uncle does. I just drove through all of New Mexico myself last week, and I have never seen so many crosses decking the sides of the freeways. Almost looks like cursed area.

This is just so terrible. I did not know them personally,but my husband works with a man that knew them well. In fact the young Lawson's helped him coach baseball. It's just so sad and everyone needs to pray for their family.
