In Memory of my Youngest Daughter

        Yes, I got the bad news from Australia on Thanksgiving 17 years ago.

        I am thankful for the grand adventures she had and that we had together during her too short life.

        Yes, I am still grieving. The pain lasts and lasts and lasts.

I remember when you first wrote about Dawn on the blog so many years ago. It's as heartbreaking today as it was then to read of your loss.

But today, when I see the photos of dawn, that sky filled with color and brightness, the start of a beautiful new day... I think what a way to remember Dawn... filled with light and beauty.
