“To all of Dawn's family, I am so sorry for your loss. I along with many others will miss Dawn. I will miss listening to her stories she would tell of happy and funny times with her family. Dawn always spoke to me about her family and how much they did for her, the time they spent together and the love she had for them. Dawn had a big heart and she loved life. Dawn always enjoyed playing card games, talking to people, helping people and being a good friend to people and she loved to joke. Most of all she was all about her love for her family. I will miss Dawn, she was a Dear Friend. My prayers will be with Dawn's family during this sad time. RIP my dear friend.
