Dusty was a family member and dear to our hearts. She touched everyone who visited our home. She was loved by all! We had her before the births of our two children. She actually grew up with my 15 year old daughter, who she was slightly older than.
She left this world about six hours after a party for my daughter's 15th birthday (at about 3:30 a.m., in my arms). She had been sick for about two months, so we knew her time was coming. Even knowing, it didn't dull the pain of her loss. We are crushed.
Dusty was an absolute joy, and I thank God for blessing us with her. She passed knowing she was loved and adored. I'm glad I came across this forum to express my grief, share my love for her with you all, and celebrate her Life. She is physically gone, but will never ever be forgotten!
Dusty, we love and miss you!!!!!!
