    The world is darker today. When I was diagnosed with my cancer, Dawn was the first person in my online community to reach out to me. At the time I barely had enough money for food
    and was being very frugal with my expenditures at The Pad (although she could not have known that) and she gave me a gift of $25.00 worth of her incredible art. I was so deelply touched that she would do that, and I explained to her how much fun I would have being able to get the many Dawn Inskip things on my wish list and playing with them. She gave me the gift of escape from my worries and she knew that. I am sad that we have lost such a loving, generous thoughtful angel and pray that the family knows how much she is loved here at the Pad.

    So sad. I was a fan of Dawn's even before she came to the Pad. Her talent will be missed. I pray her family will be comforted by seeing the love she inspired.

    Thank you to everyone who has shared their stories about Dawn's beautiful personality and loving generosity. I only knew her through her beautiful designs and it means so much to hear how she has touched so many lives. My heart goes out to her family and her Lilypad community with condolences for this tragic and unexpected loss.

    I am speechless. While I did not have the privilege of knowing her, I have followed her design career for many years. Condolences and prayers to/for her loved ones and friends. She will be missed.

    I am devastated that the world has lost this lovely and talented Lady. She has been an inspiration to thousands of us in the scrapping community. My thoughts are with her family in this difficult time. I hope they know how much we valued her and her work over many years. She was a gift to all of us.

    I just heard this devastating news. I am so sad and heart-broken. I didn't know Dawn closely, but I have so many of her kits and love her designs. She was always so sweet and made so many nice comments on my layouts for challenges. I pray for Dawn's family and friends that God will comfort them and give them peace. I will miss her. My deepest sympathy to all.

    oh what a beautiful photo of you and Dawn. I too am glad you met her and were able to give her that wonderful hug. Gosh not a day goes by that I don't think of Dawn. She was such a special woman. Big hugs.

    What a wonderful photograph of you and Dawn. I still find myself forgetting that she's not with us anymore. Thanks for sharing.

    She was truly really sweet. We met back in 2007 in person. And followed eachother on our blogs. She was the sweetest. And I'm truly sad. Huge loss for all of us. We just need to keep her in our prayers. I am still processing. Love to you all.
