My deepest condolences to the McClelland family. I had known Dawn for quite some time, she was the mother of my close friend Lyndsey, and was a very friendly, caring person from day 1. They had a very strong relationship that I admired and I know that she will truly be missed. I wish Lyndsey and the family strength during this tough time.
