Condolence From: Gina Allman- Cortes, Chandler, Arizona
Condolence: I deactivated my Facebook in January and life got busier than I could keep up with. Something led me to her last message to me in Messenger yesterday so I began to respond back. I decided instead to go to YouTube and watch her videos. That’s when I read about the accident that occurred that took my long time friend!! Dawn was a friend of over forty years to myself and my siblings Chris and Rob. Soooooo many memories in elementary and middle high with Dawn bring a smile to my face and happiness in my soul. All of Dawn’s and my talks about music and bands we loved especially Duran Duran! Through the years she and I spoke several times about silly memories, loving memories, and our husbands (I always considered Matt her husband and saw how wonderful he was to her), and how fast my children had grown up!! From Myers elementary to Tuslaw Junior High, to Tuslaw High School, there are so many wonderful memories we shared with one another!! My first year in Arizona (85) was filled with many calls to Dawn crying about how much I missed her and Ohio. Each call ended with, “no distance can ever break our friendship and you’re gonna be OK G. Just remember I love you.” Well Dawn, while you may be gone from this Earth, not even death can end our friendship or the love we shared as buddies for all of these years. Until we meet again someday, I love you and I’ll see you again. Keep flying with the angels!!

Condolence: Pam and Tom with my sincere condolences and deepest sympathy of your loss. I adored Dawn and loved her feisty spirit. I have had many thoughts of all of you, since you left PA. The good ole days of the Kmart in East Town mall, where I first met Dawn and Pam worked for me. May lasting memories and love live on in you to get through these toughest of times.

Condolence: Dear Pam, I am so very sorry for your loss! Dawn was truly unique and precious, and she touched so many people with her humor and zest for life. I can't imagine what you're going through. I'll be at the service on Saturday, but only in spirit, due to family obligations. I wanted you to know you are loved and cared about, even if I can't be there to hug you in person! Always, Ana

Condolence: My heartfelt prayers are with Dawn's family and friends. I just want you to know that myself, my niece, sister and grandchildren were at the accident within minutes. My niece got a blanket for her and stayed along with several others until help arrived. My granddaughter held hands with me and we prayed. I wanted to let you know that this beautiful woman was not alone. May God bless you all.
