In memory of Dustin Rawls

Created by Family Of Dustin Rawls

Dustin Rawls

This page was very difficult for me to add. But, as Dustin and Tiffany's Mom, I really want this message to get out to all kids and adults.
YES, IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU! My son was a very smart young man and he was an awesome son and person. But, on the early morning of Sept 27, 2007 he made one bad choice that affected his life and all those that love him.
The reason I say "CHOICE" is because at 18 Dustin told me, "Mom you taught me right from wrong and taught me what not to do, using yourself as a bad example. I do understand that, but I am older and make my own choices and that has nothing to do with what you did or did not teach me". And as most kids think Dustin also thought it would never happen to him.
So Please! Please! Let Dustin's life and death make a difference in each and every one of your lives and think before making that BAD CHOICE!
Love to all from Dustin's Mother

This Memorial was created to commemorate a loved one's life and to let other families know they can turn to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids for help when struggling with their son or daughter's substance use. Please consider sharing this page to increase awareness of substance use disorders and to provide hope and healing for others.

I am sorry for your loss. I just created a memorial and know that it's comforting to know that others care. My daughter made some bad choices too but that doesn't make us love them less. My prayers and thoughts go out to you.

My heart goes out to you and your family. Over a year ago I lost not just a great friend but someone who was like a sister to me. Please take a moment of your time to visit the website her mother set up for her in order to get justice at this point in time and if you agree please sign the petition

Patti, I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful son Dustin. I lost my son Dallas July 12, 2007. It is so unbelievable. It is never easy. It never will be. It is so hard to make sense of it all. Beautiful young lives destroyed. So many people who loved them left behind to live without them. Peace to you from Seattle...
