When I went to visit Dawn for the last time and saw her continuing to fight on her last days I recalled a particular look she used to get occasionally . It was a look of determination, maybe even feistiness. I remember her getting that look when she was upset. Clearly even that look couldn't outlast the fact it was Dawn's time to go. Despite the fact Dawn has left I can still hear her hearty laugh. She touched many of our lives with her feistiness, determination, and carefree ways during her time here. Dawn did what she wanted and was "all that and then some" indeed. I will miss Dawn, but will carry her memories in my heart.
