My deepest sympathy goes out to the family and friends who knew, and loved Dawn. I was broken 💔 when I heard the news that my childhood best friend had passed away. Memories & tears flooded my head & eyes as I thought of all the things we use to do the good, bad and ungly. She had my back no matter what. She was truly a great friend. We use to smash on some homemade french fries that she taught me how to make. When I was pregnant with my first child and she was off to college, I was going through a difficult time at home with my parents and she asked her mom to take me in, and she did. Every chance she got she would come home to make sure I was alright. It was Chi Chi, Boe Boe, Tunnie, and Geri. RIH, my dearest friend ♥️.

Dawn you will be missed. I can remember when I lived with Denise and you would spend the night. During the days she worked and I didn't we would have the best talks. Sometimes about family and a host of other things. You are special and unique and I will never forget you and Denise toting me around like your own child as a kid I loved being loved and taken care of since my mom was not very good at it .. Your mom did too. This what I do know. ,Dawn was loved emincilly by all of us. I loved you as you loved me. You will never be forgotten! Never I promise. I'm glad you're there with Al, your mom, along with all other family and friends. Sooo... as usual I'm long winded. In closing you were one of the biggest dog lovers in the world. I love you and miss your wilding out at times . I always laughed and Denise always got pissed. Lol. Love you girl, see you later. I'll knock on your door first. The biggest hug and kiss ever. Always missed and loved by all! I love you!!!!

Dawn was my bestie. We lived on the same street, both were the middle child of three sisters. We played together, had sleep overs, dance parties. So many good memories of her as childhood friends. I send my heartfelt condolences to her family during this time of loss.

Dawn Rest In Peace. I am so saddened to hear you returned to God. May Allah SWA cool the burning tears of sadness from within your family and friends. May He replace the sadness with the joy of your memories and moments with you. ❤️. We were all children once. The Smiths and Savages. 3 daughters in one home. Friends with 3 daughters in another. All same ages. I will cherish those summertimes of our childhood. Your pet dog Sporty 🙂 Visits to each other’s homes. Sleep overs. Giggling about our boyfriends or worried about report cards. Running up and down our basements stairs or up to our rooms. Sneaking to the dances. Getting spare change to go swimming or to the store. I wish for those simpler days and times. We will miss you.
