You were always so nice to me growing up. Very caring. And your smile, I will miss that pretty smile.
RIP sweet cheeks. ??'???'?
Dawn was a gifted educator with many skills as well as a fun person outside of work. I appreciated her uniqueness, professionalism, no-nonesense approach, and personality. She will be missed.
Dawn was my neighbor and friend for many years. It is so strange to drive by her place and she isn't there anymore. I really miss her presence. God's love to her family.
I had so much to say. As a student of her's, I was moved by how she taught me social cues and respected her bluntness. She taught special education so well, and without her, I doubt I would have finished High School in time, if at all. I wanted to thank her so much, but now I won't be able to.
I give my condolences to the Soltis family.
RIP Dawn. We were so surprised to here of you passing. Your Stark Lake neighbors Bonnie and Al Fish.
Dawn I cannot believe this has happened still . My son and his friends are so devastated. It is so hard to take this loss or wrap my head around it. Our family is so saddened by all of this news. So many things I had hoped we could do in the future. There is a big void for all children whom you have helped and the parents fell lost without you. Such dedication. I am grateful for all you have done. Your work wasn't even near done . Miss you every day.
Dawn - I am still trying to come to terms with this news. My heart goes out to your family. You were such a wonderful advocate for your students, and we will miss you greatly. Thank you for shepherding my son through 10th grade and always being there for him and me. You made such an impact on your students and will be remembered for all of your hard work, support and friendship. FLHS and our community have lost a tremendous teacher. I am so thankful I got to know you.
Dawn and Muppet were regular customers of mine at the Forest Lake Chuck & Don's. I will miss seeing them in here, we are all so saddened by her loss. She was also my brother in-law's teacher, and I know that he and his family all spoke very highly of her, and she will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this impossibly difficult time, and know she touched the lives of so many.
Our family is crushed by your loss. You were such a wonderful woman. Thank you for all the hardwork, tears, extra hours, and love you gave to all of your students. You will be remembered and missed for a very long time.
Dawn, you were a fierce woman with passion for your work and your students. There isn't any possible way that the void you're leaving could ever be filled. I loved working with you, conversing with you, but most of all, I loved just getting to know you. You will be greatly missed. As for your family, I pray that they can find peace in this sudden, tragic, event.
