  1. Dawn and family. So sorry for your loss. Losing a parent is always difficult and changes family dynamics. As a nurse we know that death can be a friend and not the enemy. We can not wish people to stay on earth when they are sick and in pain and can’t recover. Hold on to the good memories. She certainly raised an awesome daughter. Thoughts and prayers to you all.
