I am a former co-work of Dawn's. She and I had a love of unusual jewelry and we kept meaning to go together to the Gem & Mineral Show at the Salem Civic Center, but we kept having conflicts and never made it. She had such beautiful hair and a voice to match. I often told her she should narrate audio books, because she has such a distinctive voice. I recall her love for her daughters. I hope the sorrow of Dawn's passing is short lived for her family and friends. Dawn was such a beautiful GEM.
