I have so many memories of my aunt Dawn, all good too. She always had a big hug and the warmest smile for me. I am in limbo at this moment. I know we didn't see one another very often, but we both knew how much love we had. Rest easy my beautiful auntie. I'll have coffee with you and mom some morning ........
