Today I learned of the loss of your dear Dawsyn from Robin who cut my hair. Tears fell as she showed me pictures. I do not know you, but I know your pain through the loss of my own daughter. There is no other heartbreak like it. My prayers are for you now and through so many days, months and years. May your tears one day turn into smiles as you remember your Dawsyn.
