    Dear family,
    I had the good fortune to get to know Dawn many years ago. We shared some classes at North Hennepin and St. Cloud State. I was also a mom with two children who had gone back to college to pursue a teaching career so we had much in common. Dawn was a joy to know – my prayers are with you.
