Donna Gruss

I was very sad to hear about your mother's death. We had many interesting conversations traveling back and forth from her medical visits. I know you were very important to her.

Lori Cornetti R.N.

Dawn, Though we didn't get to meet, I had the pleasure of taking care of your mom twice on MS7 at Conemaugh. The last night I worked (12-17) we spent a lot of time talking. According to Donna the two best things in her life were you, and her art. I will never forget her.

Dawn Bressler

I want to say thank you to everyone for the kind words. It is wonderful to know that my mom had so many great friends in her life. She was my best friend and I know she loved all of you.

Aaron and Lorelle Hansen

Dawn, I am so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. If you should need anything please feel free to call or stop on over. Again my thoughts and prayers are with you and Bill at your time of need.

Ron and Linda Wingard

Dawn, We were sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. We got to know her from going for coffee at Gordon's restaurant and the Breakfast Club. We always had fun at our birthday and Christmas parties. We had alot of good laughs and good times. We will miss her.

Christa McGary and Family

Dawn, my thoughts are with you. Your mom was a sweet and funny lady and I am sorry I only knew her for a short time. We had fun taking her shopping and I only wish we would have had more trips together. I'm here if you need me.

Guy & Roxanne

Sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. She was a very nice lady. Let us know if you need anything.

Magallon Family

May you find comfort in the memories that are yours to cherish always, and strength in the companionship of those who share your loss.... I have learned never to underestimate the healing power we all have. It is always there to be used for the highest good. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. (Matthew 5:4) May it be a source of inner strength to know that there's a loving God watching over you, and that, throughout this time of need, He'll stay close by your side. I have fought the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.-2Timothy 4:7. As for me, I will lie down that I may sleep; I shall certainly awake, for Jehovah himself keeps supporting me. -Psalms 3:5

Kevin Manges

Dawn, Thinking of you at this difficult time. Even though I didn't know your mom for very long she was always kind to me. I will miss her.

Denny and Helen

Dawn, our thoughts and prayers are with you and Bill. Donna was one of the best.

Bev Greek

Dawn, I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother. This is one of the hardsest things in life to go through. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Bill. Dawn, just know your mom was where she wanted to be, and that was home with you! She is now in peace at a better place. Take Care.
