Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you! Dawn was an amazing woman that cared about her family with all her heart. God blessed everyone that knew her as she opened up her heart and would help anyone she would touch. We know she will be truly missed by all, but her beautiful spirit and love will still be in each of you. She has blessed all with so many wonderful memories. Her family meant so very much to her and as Jesus holds her in His arms, let your hearts know that a part of her will be with you everyday.Love your friends, Kim and Rich Gallagher
