I am so glad the bench is there where Dawn and her family loved amongst the lions. Beautiful. XO RIP Dawn.. enjoy the animals :) You will always be missed.

Thanks so much for updating everyone on the progress and unveiling of the bench. What a beautiful tribute. I'm glad you were able to share the day with her family, even though it was probably emotionally demanding. It looks like your day was beyond memorable....and the drawing - what a treasured gift! You're a wonderful person and friend to Dawn for organizing this Karen. Thanks again for sharing!

My goodness, what a story. I'm so glad you made this all possible. ♥



Whilst I did not know Dawn, I know losing a friend is heartbreaking. It is so thoughtful of you to have led the effort to commemorate your friend in such a special way. God Bless.



Karen, thank you for the update and thank you so much for organizing all of this.
Wonderful to see this memorial bench to Dawn next to her beloved white lions.
Dawn will always be missed but will always be with us in our hearts.
Thank you for sharing your photos and memories of this special day!
Big hugs!

The bench is absolutely beautiful. Do you know from what type of wood it was made? Yes, it was placed in a perfect area.
You are a dear friend, Karen, to have organized this and to pay such amazing tribute to Dawn.

Thanks so much Karen for organising this and for the wonderful photos! The bench is simply stunning and in such a prime position! I am sure Dawn will come to sit awhile to watch her favourite lions! Sending big hugs and love to you and Dawn's family! xxx
