  7. Dawn, you will be missed. The times I was around you were very brief but you were the best at showing love to anyone you encountered. You sure knew how to make anyone feel at home with your silly jokes and the way you called us “hon” I can just hear you say “Hon” followed by a silly comment and your laugh.
