We never got to share those drinks in the hot tub. We never got to hang out in person and trash talk the way we wrote. To Darryl and family, Dawn meant the world to many, many people. She was one of the strongest, most courageous women I know with a great sense of humor. I am so terribly sorry for your loss.

Darrell and Girls; I’m so very sorry to hear of Dawn’s passing. She was a natural comedian with her witty comments and “shoot from the hip” attitude. I always wanted to sit next to her at your family gatherings in the old days, knowing I’d be thoroughly entertained. I’m saddened to think she fought a long battle, and that I’ll never again have the pleasure of sharing a good laugh with her.
