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
