My sincere condolences on Dawne's death. She was very helpful to me, and MANY others, in the Oklahoma City recovery community. I doubt you have any idea how many lives she helped! Mine is definitely one. May she Rest In Peace, and may her family know what a blessing she was to many!!!!

I'm sending my deepest condolences to Lindsay & family may your memories lift you up during this time of heartache. 

We are so sad to learn of the passing of such a wonderful woman. Through Loretta and her many exquisite talents we also get glimpses of many of the same gifts and many contributions in the obituary for her mother Dawne. We are holding you all in our hearts at this time of such great loss.
