“Deondra you have left A hole in my heart… but I will fill it with all of the memories that you gave me.”

 

“My heart shattered to a million pieces … my lovely sister Deondra has changed …,” Foxx wrote. “I say he is moved, for he will always be alive … he who knew my breast … knew he was a bright light …”

“I can not say how many times we had parties in the house where he came to the dance floor, stole the show …”, he continued before joking, his money … ”

Born on September 6, 1984, in Dallas, Texas, Dixon was appointed Ambassador to the Global Down Syndrome Foundation in 2011.

With the support of his close family, he started competing in the Special Olympics when he was in 6th grade and competing for more than nine years. After graduating from high school in Texas in 2002, Dixon moved to California to live with Foxx and the rest of his family.

In his biography posted on the foundation’s website, Dixon says he was “born to dance,” writing: “I want to become a professional dancer.”

“My brother gave me the opportunity to do something special,” Dixon wrote. “I danced in her ‘Blame It’ video. I have danced on stage at some of his concerts all over the country. And guess what? I danced at the Grammys. “
