Dearest Dixie, Dave, DJ, and Amaya, my very deepest and sincerest sympathies. I am still in shock at Dawn's sudden passing. All I know is God knows best and there is a reason for everything that happens in our lives.
Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Dixie, Dave, DJ & Amaya, I'm so sorry. My heart is broken as I know yours are. I miss my best friend so very much and only wish more people could have gotten to know the wonderful person who I was proud to know and love. She was such a kind, nonjudgmental, loving, peaceful soul. The world is a sadder place without her loving heart in it. You have a wonderful family full of such love for each other and I appreciate so very much that you let me be a part of it. I will love and miss her forever.

Dixie, my heart breaks for you. I put myself in the position of a mother losing her daughter, and I just cannot even imagine the pain and sadness you are feeling. Just know that I will continue to hold you and your family up in prayers.

""Letter from Heaven

To my dearest family and friends, there are some things I'd like to say
But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's not more tears of sadness; Here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon, and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through.
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you.

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family,and friends, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly, you're part of my plan.
There's so much that I have to do, to help our mortal man"

God gave me a list of things that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you . . . in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years.
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry: it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over,
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too;
That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain;
Then you can say to God at night . . . "My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented . . . that my life was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.

So, if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low;
Just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go . . . from that body to be free.
Remember you're not going . . . you're coming here to me.
