Condolence & Memory Journal


I'm so sorry to see you go. But it was your time I guess. You are very special and well loved by everyone. I know your parents, siblings, children and grandchildren will miss you so much. I think one of my favorite memories of you is when you had Humphrey the camel on the record player. You and Patti and John were marching around and around on the rug, singing to it! I think you might have been six or eight! It brings a smile to my face! I love you sweetheart. Auntie Kathi.

Dawna may this eternal flame continue to shine, reminding everyone what a special person you were. I will always remember you as my baby cousin, being the oldest of the Cousins on our side of the family. You were just a toddler and I can remember pushing you in the carriage around the house on Agassi street. I am glad you did not suffer and may you R.I.P. Say Hi to my Mom and Dad and Grammie and Grampa Ledoux for me.
Love you forever Dawna
