For many years, everytime i was at Walmart, I had the absolute pleasure of visiting with this precious, kind and lovely lady. My heart feels as though I've lost a friend whom I so looked forward to seeing. Yet, I know that pales in comparison to the loss you are experiencing.
How she loved her family, and adored her girls. May our precious Father hold each of you so warmly and lovingly, and comfort you with the knowledge that this in no way is the end of the story. God bless you all.

One of my favorite memories of Dawnette is when we all went to kerris graduation. Even though her poor arm was swollen and she was in a lot of pain, she was still so happy for kerri and she was so proud to see her baby graduate and take that next step into adulthood. She wanted to see that more than anything. Her smile that day was contagious and truly beautiful. She was one of the most beautiful people Ive ever met.
