My prayers are with your family as you deal with the premature loss of a loved one. Although I've only met Dawn a few times, I too am dealing with a young family member with cancer and my heart goes out to all of you who had to suffer through watching her treatment. May she be at peace and rest.

Dawn really represented an indomitable spirit. Throughout her long fight she was positive at every turn.

Dear Walt and family, Gerry and I were horribly saddened when we read the news of Dawn's passing this morning. I know it has been a long time since we have done anything together but, we have wonderful memories of all the good times we had in our youth. I was fortunate to be able to see Dawn on occassion in the infusion department; she was always wearing a smile and her courage and will to fight were contageous. I wish I had the chance to tell her just how much of an inspiration she was and will continue to be for me. She was a true gift to the world and I am so blessed for having to know her. Her memory will never be forgotten; she will remain in my heart and continue to be my inspiration to fight. I send prayers and angels to you all for strength to make it through this horrible time and healing so that your beautiful memories will quickly overcome the pain. With Love and Friendship Always,

Oh Walt; I'am so sorry to hear the sad news of Dawn's passing. We were just talking about a month ago about going on a trip a year just to do some nice easy diving. I know she is diving now and is in no pain Walt of this you can be sure. I never expected to hear this news, you know she was such a fighter. I think of her all the time and will continue to do so, you know I loved her so Walt. Please keep in touch if you want. Love Always Carole M Branco
