thinking a lot
about Hawthorne, especially this week...and the beautiful weather makes
me think of her. I am going to go out to a nice lunch today _outside

What a Gem, I

I walked in the Race for the Cure recently and while their focus was breast cancer (I lost my 54-yr old mom to it); I thought of all the strong women I've known who have battled/battle cancer. I told my walk mates about H.
I'm deeply humbled having known her. Thank you and my heart goes out to you for your loss.
she was such a delightful, beautiful child, so sunny and warm, friendly
and ever so bubbly. I find myself thinking about her and her wonderful
Father every now and then, and how sad I am for her dear Father, who
her so well.
Love to you

I honestly feel so bad that I was never able to meet her but reading
her on your tribute page - you get such a sense of her that you do feel
like you know her. That tribute page still amazes
about you today and sending good thoughts your way. Take care.
|I remember your
energy so well. remember us too Hawthorne.
Much love and blessings,
I dedicated my 100 mile bike ride to you today. I could feel you with me. Impossible for me to comprehend that it has been nearly three years since I've held your hand, touched your hair, heard your laugh. Seems like yesterday. I keep thinking you are on a trip and that you will call soon.
love you forever,
I still see your face clearly, hear your laugh, remember the grilled cheese you brought me. I printed

met hawthorne a few times during her friendship with another friend of
mine - courtney. When she was living on division near where the Good
now is, they had stories of knowing the local corner shop owner very
and how much they enjoyed getting his extensive beer advice. I remember
reading the dishwasher zine and seeing hawthorne poised in a photo in
and thinking how sweet of a person she always seemed to be. I just now

that 4 years have passed since they last saw and spoke to her, but I am
sure she is always near her loving family and loved ones.

her birthday is in 2 days.
I was blessed enough to have a child, a son, last April & I hope that I raise such a creative, energetic, beautiful & confident individual as you raised Hawthorne.
I miss her.
My thoughts are with you.

every time I do, she always brings a smile to my face. I love that I
still hear her distinctive voice and see those intensely gorgeous eyes
of her. I miss her terribly but feel so privileged to have known

had Hawthorne on my mind all day for some reason. I think it started
when the song "Across the Universe" came on the radio.
Just thinking about her.
I was thinking about Hawthorne this morning as I reflected on Elizabeth Edwards. I taught Hawthorne during the years she was at PNCA. It has been heartbreaking to have lost several members of her class. They were so full of life and love.
My name is Pete Jordan and I was a friend of Hawthorne's. I was so sad to hear the news several years ago. Hawthorne was a very special person who made me feel on top of the world every time I saw her.
I had a goal to wash dishes in all fifty states and, of the hundreds of people I met along the way, Hawthorne was quite probably the person most enthusiastic about my project. I loved hanging out with her after hours back when she worked at Genoa.
I wrote a book about my dishwashing quest and mentioned Hawthorne in the Acknowlegments and (briefly) in the book itself. I'd love to send you a copy. If you can e-mail me your address, I can get it in the post.
| I think
often Hawth, I know you're looking out for the rest of us. Miss you.
Oh Hawth, I miss you. I will never forget the day Hawthorne, who after her first round of cancer treatments, popped her cheerful self into my office one day and started drawing on the chalk wall in my old office in 4/SW. She drew this amazing blue shoe, with what looked like her own leg attached to it. She and I both colored it in and it stayed on the wall. That blue shoe now hangs by the coffee bar. Please think of her vivacious, bubbly, stubborn, goofball, energetic, child-like self every time you walk by it. She was a gem.

| Two nights ago I dreamed
Hawthorne and I
were having dinner at Three Doors Down. We talked about how much things
had changed since we first met. We talked about how summer was over and
it was going to start raining soon. She told me she had a daughter the
same age as mine (three). Right before I woke up I told her I was sorry
we hadn't seen each other in so long.
Once I woke up, I realized she was gone. I still miss her.
Hawthorne and Dad December 2001
Frank and family,
Sending you my thoughts and prayers. I am sure the wonderful memories of your special daughter Hawthorne will give you confort. She is always remembered for her gentle spirit and great talents.
