Miss Shelby,

Over the next few weeks and months, may the beautiful memories of Dustin wrap you in the comforting warmth of the deep love that you shared together here on Earth. To have captured your gracious and giving soul, he must have been truly something special. Moving forward will be difficult and the place in your heart, that he filled, may never heal completely but it will eventually and you will be able to lovingly re-visit all of moments of joy you shared whenever you want to. He who tried to keep everyone laughing and smiling, would want you to be able to do that, as any loving soul would, so please shed the guilt that can occur as you gain your strength and lift your heart back up to the universe to be filled again. I will send love and strength your way whenever I can. So sorry to see you suffering sunshine.
