Dear mom, Although your life was cut short and we all miss you already, we have to think of all the good memories and the life you have given us. We have nothing figured out and we are lost without you but we will survive. We love you so much and we will cherish the past and the good and the bad times we spent with you. The tears we shed are of sadness but also of good because you have blessed us with life and your love. You were one of a kind mom and we will never forget the good in your heart. R.I.P. Dawn Micken. We hope the journey to the other side was pleasant and comfortable. Love and miss you so much there will not be a day we won't be thinking of you... Love your guts
