  6. I went to school with Dawn as well (Was classmates with Robbie) She was always such a bright shining star. This loss is tragic, and I am so sorry to the Storey family, and to Dawn’s children, for your loss.

  7. I was Dawn’s neighbor for the last several months. The two things I learned about her were her sweet nature and her love for her children. My heart goes out to her family and especially her children, during this tragic time of loss. May she rest in peace in the arms of the angels. Amen.

  8. I also went to school and was in the choir with Dawn as well. Very sweet girl, well liked and enjoyable to be around. Remember her well on the choir tour to Canada. She will be missed.

    P.S. You are in my prayers!

  10. Dear Frank, Eileen and Family:

    Please accept my most sincere and heartfelt sympathies at this time. What a huge loss for you and your family, and Dawn’s family. I remember Dawn when she was a young girl and was in a talent show at the Star Theatre, singing beautifully. I’m glad she was able to continue her singing.
    I send you wishes in the hope that you are all able to find the strength you need to cope with this tragic loss. You have gone through losing a child once; it doesn’t seem fair that you should have to go through it again. My heart goes out to all of you.

  11. I cannot believe she is deceased.

    Dawn helped me so many times over the past 5 years that I had known her, that I cannot believe her passing. It was too soon, it was not her time. My condolences to her family and her children, especially her beautiful daughter Natalie.

  12. Dear Storey Family,
    I learned of Dawn’s passing when my parents visited me last month in Utah where I live now. I wanted to send you my sincere sympathy. I can vividly remember Dawn through the years beginning with playing at Anjie Crow’s house to the Summer Circus performance to her singing her way through high school. Dawn always greeted me with a smile and I am grateful for that. May sweet memories comfort you and may peace be yours in time. I am so very sorry for your loss.
