  1. Linda Warnock — a name from our Dawson past. I’m so sorry about the loss of your daughter. Also didn’t know that Don & Beth were gone. It’s been a long time since Mom (Dorla Cofer) used to babysit for you guys. My condolences. Kae Huff

  2. I worked with Charity on a photoshoot doing hair and thought she was so kind and funny and talented. I’m deeply saddened to hear of her passing and leaving behind a young daughter. She will be missed.
