    It is with shock and sacredness that I read about my friend Dawna’s passing. I have cherished memories of Dawna as we shared many happy times together as Aloette Beauty Consultants We exchanged jokes and news. I am sorry that I am unable to visit you in person. May your cherished memories help to console you as you grieve and celebrate a special lady. Rest in peace my friend. Blessings to all of you and Dawna’s friends.

    Dear Arlene, George and the Hoy family,
    Karl and I were sorry to hear about Dawna.
    Dawna had such a colourful spirit. I worked with her on hockey committees years ago and she was never afraid to speak her mind but never hesitated to lend a hand either.
    She will be missed for sure, but well remembered too.

    Take Good Care
