Sweet Dawn. I cannot believe you're gone. I remember the last time I saw you, you were so sick but still smiling and being you. I've known you half my life and have always loved you so much. You were one of the strongest, smartest, loving people I ever met. Your babies were your world and so was your family. Rest in peace beautiful, I find comfort in knowing you're not in pain anymore. I love you baby girl 🥹
