Condolence Messages

  1. I was fortunate enough to have grown up with Dawn as a second mother. She offered her home to me as if I was her own and the amount of time I spent there it was home. She cared for me when I was sick, she feed me when I was hungry and she gave me a place to sleep when I wast tired. Most importantly she gave me Darcy, my best friend.

    The memories and experiences I have made with Darcy were only possible because of her. She always offered her time, dropping us off, picking us up, and making sure we had everything we needed before we headed out and at the end of the day she always made sure I made it home safe. Her love and care for others shows in Darcy’s personality.

    Dawn always acted as a loving and caring mother to not only her children but to me and all the other children she looked after and for that I can only say thank you for everything she has done for me.

    I am very saddened and sorry. My thoughts and prays go out to the family.

    Thank you Dawn, I love you and I will never forget everything you have done for me.
