Dear Family and Friends, I'm sorry for your loss. I just wanted to leave you with an encouraging scripture that has helped me deal with the loss of a loved one. It is found in the Bible Book of Palm 34:18 here God assures us that He is near to those broken at heart and crushed in spirit. Hope it brings you comfort as it has for me.

I was a co-worker of Dawn's at F&M. As a Float Teller, I didn't work with her a lot, but I enjoyed the times I did! I remember always hoping she was working the days I had to work at the Shoop Office. I will always remember her big smile and welcoming personality! My condolences to her family.
