Dawn became my niece after her mother and my brother married years ago.  Ive watched her turn struggles into victories, sadness into happy times, but one thing was always a constant, her love for her children no matter what went on or where she was.  She will be missed but can now be a guardian angel for her children as they continue to grow. Rest in love and peace.
