    Dawn had a spirit that was definately an inspiration in my life! I will miss her encouraging words to me, but I know Dawn is watching over all of us now! My thoughts and prayers are with Amanda, Andrew and Nicholas as I know they were number 1 to Dawn, and to Ronnie, Ginny, and the rest of the family whom I know she loved dearly.

    Years ago I worked with Dawn at the Slater News-Rustler. She made work fun and I enjoyed spending time with her whether we were at work or not. I was very sorry to hear of her passing. I will always remember her smile.
