Dawn Ward: A Simply Wonderful Gal
My dear friend, though for just a short while, Dawn Ward, passed away on 5-30-08 after battling Stage IV metastatic breast cancer. I met Dawn online when I was grieving about Oreo and still researching his illness looking for what, I don't know, just answers. And there was Dawn, straight out of the universe to share herself with me. We shared many long IM sessions and even longer emails - me pouring my heart out to her, and her coming back with exactly the right words to help me process my sadness. She was such a light in this world and she will be dearly missed by me, and the many, many people she touched with her wit, humor, intelligence, and caring. This is her beloved Casper kitty who she cured of squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue. What a smart, great person.
