DANA I am a faithful girl who believes. I wonder if Dana misses us all. I hear Dana calling me and my mom; I see her face in the sky; I want her to come back to us. I am a faithful girl who believes. I pretend that I am an angel with her. I feel that Dana is watching over me. I touch her hands in my dreams; I worry that I will never see her again; I cry when I think about that day. I am a faithful girl who believes. R.I.P. Rest in Peace, Dana

Dana as a child was a loving and sweet little girl and I had the previledge to watch her grow into a beautiful, courageous and loving young lady. Her parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts,uncles, cousins and friends she hold dearly and treated them with love and respect. She had an infectious charm and whit about her that you could not resist. She made her parents and her family proud and we will alway remember her with a loving beam in our eye's. She left a mark that cannot be erased. It was wonderful of God to allow us your family the opportunity to know and love you. We will miss you dearly! Love always your cousin Grace and Family

I can remember many years ago at a Jack and Jill Youth Conference when Dana stood up and belted out the words to "A Song for Mama" by Boyz to Men saying, "Mama you know I love you." I remember being so impressed and thinking to myself what a wonderfully talented and beautiful young lady. I pray that the memory of those type of good times and the words that she sang that day will echo in your memory forever. The entire Burke family has my most sincere condolences.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Diana left a message on April 1, 2008:
Dear Dawn I have tried tirelessly to find the right words to express my sincere feelings about the loss of your little angel. Honelsly I can't find them. So I will simply say that I will continue to hold you and your family in my prayers and I do offer my condolences. I know that she is no longer in pain and she is among the angels in the heavens looking over you, not wanting you to suffer too much. Try to focus on the happy times you share, keep the living memories alive, and keep them close to your heart, hopefully they will help to decrease and take the place of the insurmountable pains you are feeling now and that will be a part of your life hence forth. Thinking of the good will help to make it a great deal easier by easing the pain. It will also keep her close to and in your heart. You and your family will continue to be in my prayers. Diana Clark and family.

To my dear friend Dawn, I came upon this poem and I wanted to share it with you. My prayers are with your family during this very difficult time. When You feel Lonely...... When a person you love passes away Look to the night sky on a clear day. The star that to you, appears to be bright, Will be your loved one, Looking upon you during the night. The lights of heaven are what shows through As your loved one watches all that you do. When you feel lonely for the one that you love, Look to the Heavens in the night sky above.
