  1. Dear Flanagan and Jerolman families I am deeply sorry for the passing of Dawn. Although we have not had the pleasure of seeing each other for many many years I was just saddened by reading of Dawn’s passing. No matter how much time passes we were all a part of Shelton Avenue, spending hours in each
    others homes or in my back yard on the jce skatung rink. I send my sincere condolences to all. You are in my prayers. Sally Lee
