Ryan Denton Dickson, who spent his life as a photographer in Texas, had a vision of what his wife, Texas wedding planner and photographer, Nancy Dickson wanted for their wedding day, according to their children.
“We just had a dream and a vision,” said Denton’s eldest son, Cody Dickson.
The Donsons said they planned to be married in a chapel at their home in Lubbock.
But the Donson family said they were forced to move the ceremony because of the shooting.
“They told us they were going to use our home for the wedding because they were scared to get caught,” Cody Dison said.
“I don’t know how they did it.
They were trying to get rid of us.”
He added, “It just wasn’t a safe thing to do.”
Cody Denton said his father was a man of honor who believed in family.
“When we would go out and visit friends or take a weekend trip, he would always say, ‘It’s not worth it,'” he said.
Cody Dinson said he had to make the difficult decision to move their wedding from their home because of a new law in the state.
The new law requires licensed licensed funeral homes to be open for all funerals and same-sex weddings in Texas.
In response, Denton and Nancy Dolan said the couple did not want to be associated with a ceremony that was going to be officiated in a religious home.
“The first thing they told us is, ‘If you’re going to take the vows at your home, you have to be able to have someone present,'” Cody Delson said.
But they said that was not true.
“She told us to go to our home and say the vows,” Cody said.
He added that his father told them he was going out of state.
“It was just a big shock.
We just felt really bad that we were going there,” Cody added.
“As a family, we were really upset that we weren’t able to do what we wanted to do.
We were really trying to plan something to celebrate their relationship, but it was all a nightmare.”
Nancy Denton also said her husband did not know the new law.
“My husband didn’t know it either,” she said.
The family has asked for privacy during this difficult time.
The couple said they will be making arrangements to move out of their home and into a new place, according the Dontons.
The move was met with mixed reactions.
“People were surprised,” Cody explained.
“A lot of people thought we were insane.
We’ve been talking about this for a long time.”
But Nancy Dinson told ABC News, “We have nothing to do with the funeral.
We’re a happy family.”
Denton was shot dead at a home in Garland, Texas, on April 26.
His wife, Nancy, and three children were also killed in the shooting, according of their children’s family.
Nancy Dixons family said the shooting was a random act of violence and the Denton family was grieving the loss of their loved one.
The grieving family, including Nancy Dicks son, Dylan, said he has no clue what happened to their father.
“There are so many things that we don’t understand about the situation,” Dylan Dickson said.
Dylan said the Dixones were planning to move to a new house in the town of Bexar County when the shooting occurred.
“Ryan was the person who brought us together and made us who we are,” Dylan said.
Nancy and Ryan Dixon have three other children: Lauren, 18, and Jacob, 18.
Nancy said her father was one of the most generous people she had ever known.
“He loved the people in his life and he was one for the long haul,” Nancy Ditton said.
Her father said that when he was young, he was a member of a sorority.
“So we were very fortunate that he was able to be part of that and he did something he loved and he sacrificed his life for the good of others,” Nancy said.
As the Dinson family mourns the loss, the Dicksons are doing everything they can to raise money for their mother, Nancy’s brother, Ryan Dins, and his wife in their battle against brain cancer.
“For us, it’s just the last thing that we need,” Cody told ABCNews.com.
The Waco Tribune-Herald reported that the family’s home is in the Lubbocks suburb of Lubbell.
Nancy was the oldest child and Ryan was the youngest, the newspaper said.
Ryan is also battling cancer.
His family said he is recovering from an aggressive form of the cancer.
Nancy’s father, Ryan, was killed by an off-duty police officer who had just arrived at the scene of the accident.
The Lubbillans’ daughter, Jessica Denton, was at the home when the
