There are many things I have kept over the years. Memories are forever in my heart of Dustin. But there are also little gifts he gave me that I will never part with.
This Valentine’s card is one of those priceless treasures. He was so excited. We went to a store, I gave him money and he went to the other side of the store. He picked out this card and a small box of chocolates. And he hid it from me in his room until the next day, which was Valentine’s Day.
He was so proud when he gave me my gift and card. Raising him as a single parent, this is how we did things. If he wanted to surprise me, which he often did, we would go to different parts of a store, then meet up at a certain time. Back in the day when it was safe to do this.
I will never forget these precious moments. He always wanted to make me smile. And he still does even after he is gone. Love you Dustin!
