Sherry and Dick.
I am so sorry. My prayers are with all of you. I just can't believe it. Just a few days ago she was sitting in my living room with "Mr. Jack" visiting. Again my thoughts are with you and if there is anything I can do to help just ask.

Sherry, Dick, and family,

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of our special friend and “aunt.” From my childhood, Dawn was an important part of our family and was always eager to help - from helping my mom to get us where we needed to be to babysitting my son and everything in between. We will always treasure her. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

I was lucky to know Dawn, I was blessed to call her a Friend.

I'll miss our chats on the bench at the apartment, Jack's ears perking up when he heard my voice, ( he was SO lucky to have come into your life) and our little walks. I'll treasure those memories and am thankful for them.

Heaven has a new Angel. Condolences to her family.

Dawn was one of the oldest and best friend I ever had. We worked together at
The VA Hospital for many years and became good friends. Dawn never missed Birthdays and all special events with my boys. She was fondly known as
Aunt Dawn to the family. Dawn lived above my ice
Cream parlor in our retirement before moving to Central Square. She was a special one and the world definitely lost a special person but heaven gained another angel.
Deepest condolences to Sherry and Family.
