"Happy 48th birthday to my daughter Dawn. I think of you often & i hope you are in a much happier place surrounded by Blue Skies & Angels,. You left this world four years ago & it seems it left so much grief with me. Our family has never been the same again & will never be. We have come apart like torn paper. i should have gone first not you to leave me with such sorrow. I know you are an Angel. Your husband chose to disconnect  from our family which I know you don't like.This was his decision. Dana loved & took care of your baby Peanut until she was sent to you. I love you Dawn & will never stop being sorry you could not find peace in your life. With all my heart. Love MomXOXOXOX0 I hope when it is my time you will be there to take my hand because when you were born I took your when you were a few minutes old. I am so sorry I was not there when you died because I was sure there when you were born at 9:30 AM, a beautiful blonde & blue eyed baby girl. It only took you 1 day to smile at me.XOXOXOXO"
