An Angel Flies Home: Goodbye Dawn


My good friend Dawn (Thrupennybit) has departed from us and is now at peace in Heaven after a long battle with illness. Dawn was a compassionate person with deep insights and love for those around her.

Some of Dawn’s photos from her garden

My sincerest condolences go to her daughter Callie. Your mum was very special and I will miss her friendship and contribution to this site.

Oh no, this is very sad news :( Dawn and I exchanged many personal emails over the years and we exchanged many plants, Christmas cards etc. I once did some family research for her - her family were Welsh ... I feel so sad.
I knew she wasn't well but didn't expect to hear this. I send my deepest sympathy to her family, who I know supported her in her disabilities for many years. xxx God bless xxx

Oh that is so sad to hear. I knew she hadn't been well but you still don't expect this. She was a regular contributor on here and posted lovely photos and blogs etc.
My condolences to all her family and friends.

I am so shocked to hear this. I haven’t kept up with everyone for a good while and despite knowing about her disabilities I didn’t know she was so unwell.
God bless Dawn. Rest in peace.
