Don't worry about being rude. Stating the truth doesn't make you rude. No one who was not in that exact situation at that exact time can say what went on. As a mom, I know what your first and only concern was at the time--getting all of your family out safely. I am so sorry that Dustyn didn't make it.

Everything that I have read about him lets me know what a special boy he was. In the picture posted, his smile warms my heart.

As a mom who lost her beautiful daughter eight years ago, you have my sympathy and condolences. It won't be easy and the grief will overtake you when you least expect it, but if you try to remember the good times, sometimes there are some smiles with the tears. God bless you and your family.
