A fond farewell

It is with a very heavy heart that I write this final entry and bid my lovely Baby Girl goodbye.  Dawn passed away last night at a little after 6:00.  

I cant even begin to express the gratitude I have for all who have follwed this journey of ours.  Your words of strength and encouragement along the way meant and mean more than you will ever know.  Dawn fought long and hard.  And if you were one of the fortunates to have been acquainted with Dawn, you know that she was stubborn and didn't let anything get in the way of her goals in life.  Her goal this year was to make it to my birthday in September.  Unfortunately, the cancer was a bigger foe than she had fight for.  

Dawn was an amazing woman, and with her passing, a void has been left.  She had an immense love for people, and her compassion knew no bounds.  It was these attributes, given by God, that allowed her to be the amazing hospice nurse that she was.  

And now she is able to walk hand in hand with her Lord Jesus.  No more pain, no more suffering. I look forward to the day that I meet up with her again.

 I love you oh so much, my Baby Girl.

    Words cannot express what I know you are feeling today. While I never really knew Dawn I do know her strength and the love you two had for each other by the words you have posted here. May God grant you peace and serenity as you go through these next days as we know, for Dawn, there is no pain, no suffering only Joy to be with her Lord.
