So sorry for your loss. I worked 41 years for the County of Bergen. I knew Dawn, Dee, and Marco was my daily mailman. OMG. RIP Dawn and to you her mother I say no mother should ever bury their child. So so sorry😢

Dear Dee, Linda and family,

My deepest condolences to all of you. My prayers and thoughts will always be with you. I have one funny memory of Dawn's time in the Fiscal Unit at Family Guidance. When we were a fiscal unit with Joe Brown as our director we had a bizarre experience . One day we heard talking coming out of a cubicle and couldn't figure out where it was coming from. We later found out the Dawn had brought in a "talking Furby" to the office and the talking was coming out of her cubicle. We had a good laugh after we found out what it was - but until we figured it out - we were all going crazy looking for where the talking was coming from. Dawn stayed "mum" the entire time - Joke was on us!!! Loved her for the wonderful person she was.
