Dawn I still can’t believe you’re gone, just way too soon. Like I told you I was so proud of you for how you fought the last couple months. You had come so far and we had so many more good times ahead. I thought we had lost you back in December and am thankful we got another couple months around you, the way you touched peoples lives like all your friends at Cornerstone was amazing! I miss you very much and will never forget all the fun times we had together. The three amigos will be together again one day but until then you and Joe will be making everyone in heaven smile and laugh like you both do so well. I love you and miss you terribly. Your loving cousin and best friend Chris

Our sweet and precious friend Kimberly "Dawn" Buchanan-Watson.....Oh how you fought so very hard to get better!!!! I am so sorry you have left this world too soon, you have no more sickness, no more worries, no more fears.

Dawn, even though you are not here to read this I just wanted to say that I am so sorry your life ended as abruptly as it did, you had come so far in such a short amount of time, but God saw that you were tired and always in pain and he doesn’t like to see his children suffer so he took you home. So very glad that we had gotten close again and I sure will miss your morning phone call and or text. You had such a funny sense of humor that a lot of people are going to miss. Enjoy Heaven and all that God has given to you(no more pain). Give my brother a hug for me, i’ll Miss you both very much. Until we meet again. I LOVE YOU. Denise
