Shaun Delancey and his two daughters will be ringing in the New Year alone this year. It's just days after they celebrated Christmas with their mother, Tiffany Dawkins. "It's hard because when you look at the toys and stuff that she bought, and we had such a great day on Christmas morning and even on Christmas Eve putting all this stuff together," said Shaun Delancey, the father of Dawkin's children. "Now when I look at all these things, I'm constantly reminded." It was early Sunday morning when Delancey was notified that the mother of his children had been murdered. "My heart dropped and I knew when I got the call that late, that something was wrong." Delaney says its an event that has changed the entire family. "My children are going to be without a mother, her sisters are going be without an older sister," says Delancey. "She was a good daughter and a good grand daughter." Family and friends are left wondering who could do something like this to her. "Tiffany was the type of person that people liked her no matter what and she didn't have any enemies." Delancey says she had a bright spirit about her and would do anything for her family. "She would light up a room whenever she came in," he said. "She always played with her kids she always. She'd bring a smile to your face." Dawkins two girl's, Clarice and Caroline, spent the day coloring these pictures to put on Tiffany's grave. "The girls understand their mommy's gone. They know, it's not something I think they'll ever accept," said Delancey. "I think that's the biggest tragedy is that the fact she won't get to see her girls go to school and grow up and do the motherly things mothers do for their children."

Thank you ALL !

I am Tiffany's aunt and I would like to thank everyone for your thoughts and prayers for my family. Tiffany was a good girl and a good mother to them babies.Clarice said the other night "my mommy's died and I just wish she was sleeping though" They walk arounded the house and look for things she made and things that was hers and will bring it up to us and say " this use to be my mommies and then hold it tight to their chest" It's left me running to the next room. I it was a hard thing to do when I heard there was a body found and I called to make sure all my nieces were accountable for and when her sister said no aunt betty we can't find tiff I wanted to hide and say naw your just being a pernoid aunt! But I called her mom (my sister) and told her what I heard and told her to call the police to make sure. I wanted to stop time when they called and I heard her screaming in the back ground I knew then it was her.I can't sleep for dreaming of her trying to get away and asking why did she have to be throwed out on that long dark road by herself like a dog.Well I THANK EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU ! AND REMEMBER THEM BABIES IN YOUR PRAYERS. THANK YOU ! AND THANKS TO STAR NEWS AND ALL THE NEWS PEOPLE FOR LETTING US SAY HOW GOOD A PERSON MY BABY WAS !!!

Tiffany was my big Sister

Tiffany was my big Sister and I miss her so much the pain I feel is unreal i cant believe he would murder my sister and take her away from us. I will never forget that night she left our house and I stood in the drive way and watched her drive off not knowing I would neva see her alive again. its a vision I won't never forget. I will never forgive myself for letting her drive away that night if I could have just said some thing too her for her to stay home with us and not gave up so easily I would still have my sister and my nieces would still have a mother.I know they say everything happens for a reason but I can't figure out why she lost her life it such a. Horrible way.I will never forget our last christmas together and the look on the girls face when they woke up and seen mommy and there aunts there. I just pray everynight that they will get him for what he did to her. U will never be forgotten and we miss u soooo much baby gurl I love you.
Love always
Your baby sis shay

So sad and senseless!

God bless your family! You are all in our prayers. I hope they find this thug and put him/her away for ever! May you find peace.

Tiffany Dawkins

I so deeply saddend by this tragedy. I can relate to the little girls and feel thier pain and the future yearning they will have for thier mother throughout their lives. I was raised without a mother also (she was killed by a drunk driver when I was younger)and no one will ever understand the pain these girls will go through without a mom. It makes you feel like an outcast and differant from everyone else. I pray that God blesses this family and that they may find comfort to be able to support the little girls as they will need so much. I wish I could wrap my arms around them and give them extra hugs. Please stay strong.

Its just wrong

senseless absolutly senseless
