    Growing up across the street from each other and spending all our school years together has left me with many amazing memories. I will cherish our annual ” Birthday Calls” full of giggles, name calling and potty mouth. Dawn’s sense of humour and friendship will stay with me for always. Wish I could be there. My thoughts are with you.

    I knew Dawn as a teenager in Otter Lake. She was a second cousin. Unfortunately we lost touch and I just heard the terrible news this morning. I want you to know that I will always remember her. She was full of life and kindness and had a gregarious smile. She would go out of her way to pick me up in that ever present motor boat to go into town and get the mail or hang out at Johnston’s Store.We had fun.She was a great cousin and beautiful person. My sincere condolences to all the family.
