Obituary

We would like to share the life journey of our son William Kai-Hong Dodson. He was born on the 26th of January, 2014, two months pre-term. He was diagnosed with a rare genetic defect named Trisomy 18 when Winnie was 12 weeks pregnant. Doctors expected multiple birth defects and a short life expectancy. For 37 amazing days, we were blessed to walk this journey with him and share him with friends and family. From the moment he was conceived, to his diagnosis at 12 weeks, to his birth at 32 weeks, to his passing at 37 weeks, William was a loved part of our family. We were honored to share his life with many of our friends and family...

We were honored to share his life with many of our friends and family who visited us in the hospital. He may have been the most visited child in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) history. In the end William struggled to breathe and became tired.

Every life is precious and every moment of his life was precious to us.

Winnie and Brady are going to hold a memorial service for William at three o'clock in the afternoon on Saturday, the 8th of March. It will be held at Pathways Church of Houston located at 5900 Pinemont Drive, Houston, TX 77092.
