This page was very difficult for me to add, but as Dustin and Tiffany's Mom, I do so 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 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 has nothing to do with what you did or did not teach me". And as most kids he 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
Remember: never get into a car with another driver who has been drinking. Call someone for a ride or walk. You are putting yourself at risk along with others. And if anyway possible do not allow one that is drinking start that car!
A TRUE FRIEND WILL NOT LET A FRIEND RIDE OR DRIVE WHEN ALCOHOL IS INVOLVED IN ANYWAY!
NO ONE is OUT OF THE REACH of it happening to them! Do you think Dustin knew when he got in that car he would never see another day here on earth! That he would no longer be seen or touched or heard by his family and friends?
LET THIS BE A WAKE UP CALL TO EVERYONE!!!!!!
