Dawnie wasn't even 5 feet tall. But she was a fire cracker! Her greatest accomplishments are the children she left behind. She was an amazing Mom who cared for her two youngest Joey and Alex, both of which are Autistic, with love, patience and acceptance.
Jessica ~ now a mommy herself, was only a very little girl when I first met her. I remember sitting in the restaurant where we all met for the first time and Jessie sitting on my lap.
Joey, sweet, Joey. Named after his Daddy Joe. He is a very handsome and thoughtful young man!
Alex, growing bigger by the day. I have never even had the chance to meet my nephew Alex. But he is forever my nephew because Dawnie is forever my sis.
You see I live in South Florida. I am as far away as I could possibly get from Dawn's beautiful children. They live in Southern California still. Each is thriving and banding together after losing Dawn to acute leukemia last year at the age of only 40.
I guess Dawn is with all of us. I wish she was still here. I can still hear her laugh! And see her smile! We miss you so very much Dawnie!
I Love & Miss you Dawnie,
