To Dawne's Family-
We were so sorry to read of Dawne's passing. She was a bowling teammate of ours years ago with the Ten-Pin Bowlerettes ladies league. She was never without a smile and a hearty laugh! One of the best memories we have is the night she picked the 7-10 split! Wow, unforgettable!!
Our condolences to her family.
