Words cannot begin to express our sorrow over Dawn’s passing. Our condolences to Teresa and the rest of Dawn’s family. Dawn has been a fantastic friend to our family, and a wonderful advocate and caregiver for our son Vincent. Her compassion, selflessness and humor will be sorely missed. The days were always brighter when Dawn and Teresa were at our house. You’ll always be remembered Dawn. With much love, Elek, Kim, Emily, Vincent, Josh and Hannah Karnai.
