There was nothing Dawn enjoyed more than sharing good conversation and a hot cup of coffee with family and friends, around her kitchen table.
Dawn loved the color green, she loved scratch lottery tickets, word searches, “Days of Our Lives” soap opera, her squirrels, but mostly she loved her family.
