Sheila is staying with Stoner, one of her seven siblings, in Altona as she grieves for her son.
“I have tons of support,” she said, “and I have a lot of faith, as Dusty did.”
Dusty’s funeral took place Friday at Holy Angels Catholic Church in Altona; donations in his memory can be made to the Holy Angels Church Building Fund.
Dusty, Sheila said, is in a better place now.
“He had been battling these demons, and I take (consolation), peace in my own heart, knowing that my son doesn’t have to battle demons anymore.
“He is in God’s hands.”
