Dawn Marie, 5 years, people say it gets easier over time, not so true. We still miss you everyday. A couple of weeks ago heard from your boys, all in one week my heart felt so good, it was good to see and hear from them, it had been too long. Aunt Carmen asked last nite if we'll have a full moon tonite like the eve you left us. Dad is doing ok, seizures once a week, but still ok. Every morning I kiss your picture like I would if you had just come through the door. Missing your beautiful smile and laugh. Sending all the Love in us. Mom and Dad

Dawn Marie It's been 3 years today since you left us. We miss your beautiful smile and your strange sense of humor every day. Everyday when the door opens, we keep hoping it's all a bad dream and you would be standing there, but not to be, we know you are in Heaven with your Grandpas and Grandmas, cousins and aunt and uncle. Some day we will hug you again and say we love you Mom and Dad
