Guest Book

My heart goes out to Chuck, Krystal, Misty, and all who mourn this day. Dawn(DD) was a loving mother, a devoted wife, and a loyal friend, who left her mark on this world in kindness. In her, "The Light" burned strongest, impacting all those who were fortunate to cross her path. We are more for having known her. She will live on in us all, for such a light can never truly be extinguished. Dawn was a blessing in this life, and grateful for 32 years of friendship, I vow: "The three Muskateers will be whole again one day " Until we meet again, my friend... With all my heart, Peewee.
