My Aunt Dawn will always hold a special place in my heart.  Her wit and dedication to family is something that I will always remember.  I remember she would come over the my Aunt Aud's house every Thursday to have her hair done.  She would wake me up for school at 6:30am by tickling me while i was sleeping.  OH how i hated it back then but today, I cherish the memory.  I find peace in knowing she's with my Mom and Aunt Aud right now.  RIP Aunt Dawn.  You are loved and will be missed.
