    I’m very sad that Dawn has passed. I had some of the best times in my life with her. She was a stellar person.

    Dawn was a very important friend to me when I was very young until after I was married. I had so much fun with her and Anne Richardson. Times I never forget. I share your bereavement, and you have my greatest condolences.
