    I am listening to Angel by Sarah McLaughlin and thinking of Dawn when she was about 10 – the blonde tornado whose mouth sometimes couldn’t get the words out fast enough because she was thinking so fast…..and so excited about the prospect of a “snow day” that she kept us awake all night…..in the arms of the angels, sweet Dawn.

    My heart goes out to Dawn’s family and dear friends. Dawn was a kind, generous and adventurous person. She was wicked smart and a heart of gold. I am very saddened to hear the news of Dawn’s passing and hope she is at peace with no worries. She was a kind soul.

    My dear childhood friend and neighbor Dawn, I will never forget you; my violin partner for years. I first met you when you had one very long braid. Your hair was long enough to sit on. We played duets together and laughed so hard. We rode your horses and you laughed your head off when I fell off of Chuck, your fat stubborn pony. Yes it was funny. We had sleep overs and giggled all night. You made the best oatmeal with a mountain of brown sugar on that antique coal burning stove. We had horse patty fights in your pasture and of course you threw those dried up patties the hardest. You were hilarious and had a contagious laugh. I will forever hold these memories in my heart.

  • Roneida Griffith says:

    Dawn, we had so many great times, riding horses getting bucked off horses. Taking karate with my dad! You will be forever missed.

  • Kelly Oberholtzer says:

    Will always remember the great memories…. I hold a special place in my heart for you. We love you, miss you and wish you peace.

    Reading over the messages left for Dawn, it is clear that she was loved by many and brought joy into the lives of those who knew her. It is sad and tragic that she was lost to us at such a young age but comforting to know that she will live in the fond memories of so many. Rest in peace, dear Dawn.

  • Genessa Krasnow says:

    I knew Dawn well in the late nineties. She was always deeply thoughtful, compassionate and gentle. We shared many experiences together from sailing in Lake Union, river rafting in Wenatchee, Fourth of July in Gasworks Park, Lilith Fair at the Gorge and hanging with her dog Shampoo. I am so saddened to learn of her passing. I am carrying her memory in my heart and sending huge love to her family and friends.
