    Dawn, I felt I could always talk to you about anything. You came into my life like an overwhelming ray of sunshine. Always a smile on your face and overwhelming love in your heart. You always looked at the positive side of things and cared about everyone who crossed your path. I will miss seeing your smiling face and having you touch my daily life. Forever an inspiration. You will not be forgotten. You have left behind foot prints that will always be remembered.

  18. To a truly wonderful person, Dawn was a wonderful Mom and friend to me. No matter how long we went without seeing each other, she always had a smile on her face and I always enjoyed catching up with her. She was a funny and compassionate woman, and she always put her children first.
    I will miss her smiling face; I am sending my prayers and condolences to Ashtin and Justin.

  19. I worked with Dawn at Antrim County DHHS, so didn’t know her long before she moved on to other endeavors. She was such a genuinely nice person and she absolutely glowed when talking about her children. There are no words that can soften this blow, but know that I wish all of her family and loved ones peace and strength in learning how to live without her. I am so sorry.

  20. Words cannot express how my heart is feeling right now. Dawn was such a gentle spirit and anyone that came in contact with her knew that she was genuine and caring. She spoke often of her family and friends. Her trip to Hawaii had us in stitches with her stories of her plane trip and the events of the visit. When I think of her I see smiles, laughter and soft words. To her family I pray that your memories will carry you over the hurdles. God Bless. Lorelei

  21. Although I never met Dawn, I had the privilege of meeting her daughter and mother. I wish to express my sincere sympathy to you and your family, may God bless you all.
