  • I am so sad this wonderful lady has passed away. I cherish the times I spent with her and her daughter. I can still hear and treasure her laughter and the way she called me “Dawnie” as well. Her loving and compassionate ways came through in everything she did. I won’t forget how if I needed anything, she was there. She loved her animals and saw her collectibles as if she was looking at them through the eyes of a child. I love you and will miss you. Your memories will always live on with your daughter. Rest in piece, until we see each other again.
