Dear Chadwell Family: We can only wonder why some are taken from us at such a young age and are never prepared when it happens. I know your pain is great right now and so overwhelming, and I’m sorry for this tragic loss to your family. I hope the prayers and thoughtful gestures of others will bring some kind of comfort to you. I’m saddened that you have to experience this.

Wow! What a shock. I am sorry to hear about your loss. My prayers are with you during this unexpected end to a life so full. Like many who leave early it is hard to grasp a meaning or answers to the question of why. I have always held on to Psalm 139. It reminds me that this life is not all there is. There is a plan for everyone and I pray that God will give you the strength for the coming days, weeks, months and years and the understaning to the whys. Again, I am so saddened by the news.

Christ comfort and strengthen you during your unexpected grieving over Dawn. Although decades have passed, I recall the beauty of her life during her teen years, a life that no doubt enriched many over time. Your distress pierces deeper than I can know; I am very sorry for your loss. God give you resilience.

I learned this morning (Aug. 6th) of Dawn’s passing…. and was so shocked and saddened. I had the great fortune of working with Dawn and found her to be a sweet, fun, loving spirit who always made me smile!! Her love of life and others was infectious. I will always remember her with that beautiful smile and the sparkle in her eyes.. and will always be thankful for the enormously fun times we shared together. God bless you, Dawn!!
