    I knew Mary. Charlie Dawson was my niece Toni’s dad. Toni is in Columbus to attend her grandmothers funeral. To her family, I am sorry for your loss.

    With heartfelt sympathy for the loss of our Aunt Mary. As “the God of all comfort,” Jehovah does not necessarily make our problems or pain disappear. Yet, of this we can be sure: If we turn to him for comfort, he can fortify us to cope with any sorrow or trouble that life may bring.

    With All Our Love!

    With pain and despair in my heart I leave my deepest condolences to the children; Mary, Teresa, James, Virgil. We could never know what you are going through. My hope Is that I just be able to be there in the way that you may need as you are going through this. I’m deeply saddened by this loss and as I hear her voice still in guiding me on my way please find comfort in knowing that even in death your mom is breathing life into me on the moments that I feel so weak I can’t go on. She Is still providing strength to me so I may be able to stand strong. The thoughts of her words of encouragement aide in me being able to comfort you. She is a force that is bonded into my life that I will never loose. I’d like to thank you all for being her children and teaching her a few things along the way because I know she shared some of those gifts with me. I love you all more than you could ever know.
    Love Always,
    Daughter & Niece

    With pain in my heart I leave a very deep condolence to Aunt Pam. You are the youngest living daughter of the strongest woman I have ever known. Her strength has passed down to you and you are stronger than you know. I love you and if you need me I’m here for you. This is hard but I look to you and see your mother’s strength. May God continue to bless you and keep you.
