Dawn Meade's Funeral Fund

https://www.google.com/amp/wtvr.com/2017/09/22/boyfriend-arrested-after-woman-found-dead-along-louisa-road/amp/ ‌This past weekend, I lost my mother unexpectedly to domestic violence. She was taken from this world tragically and way too soon. Dawn Meade was born on March 15, 1977 in Norwalk, CT and raised in Fairfield County with her parents. At 16 years old, she gave birth to her one and only son (me), Joseph Muratori. She dedicated herself to giving a better life to me. She had the most radiating smile and the biggest heart.

Towards the end of her life, Dawn had moved to Virginia to better her life. She began telling me what was happening. I begged my mother to come home. Well, on September 22 2017, my mother was killed by her abusive boyfriend. Anybody in any type of relationship that is abusive or know someone that is don't hesitate to reach out for help.

Mom you were taken from us to soon. When the sun rises in the sky and sets beneath the shoreline, it shines your beauty on everything it touches. You will never really leave us. You are everywhere that is beautiful. You don't understand what I would give up or do to hear your voice one more time or give you the biggest hug of all time.

The reason I decided to create this page is because I need some help. I need help getting my mom back to Connecticut from Virginia where she was murdered, so I can bury her where she belongs- with her family. I am one of the very few family members she has left.  Funeral arrangements are difficult enough as it is to plan, but the financial burden and responsibility that comes along with it only stresses me and my family out more. Any little bit helps. I would appreciate any donations. My mom belongs in Connecticut, I need her to come home so I can be close to her once aga
