My heart felt condolences . Dusty will always be one of my favorite Aunts . We rode horses together years ago on Levis Rd .

From: John Dugan
To:  The family of Dusty Williams,
My sincere condolences.  May she rest in peace.

From: Susan Vanderpool
I am so sorry to hear of Dusty’s passing. We road many trails when she was riding, and she and her Appaloosa Chuckie could go anywhere. I kick myself for not visiting her more often, but that’s how it too often goes. Dave, I am very sorry and will keep you in my prayers, along with the rest of her family. What a shock.

From: Sharon Green
It was a shock to see where Dusty passed away. We were close in school and we did a lot of crazy things but it was all in fun. R.I.P. Dusty. Prayers go up to you David and the family. Love to all.

From: Geronimo Susquatch  aka Jeremy Searles
It's good to know that Mom won't be suffering anymore. Dave ,, was a pleasure chatting with you today, sorry it took such circumstances,but was probably the best Medicine. We here at the Asylum Sanctuary, would be delighted if you would make your presence here. The most amazing miracles happen here much like Alice in Wonderland life and dreams come to realities, that sitcom Love Boat. Dave I couldn't imagine losing half of me. Stay safe and healthy

From: Harry & Becky Durham
Becky and I are sending our sincere condolences to the Williams family! I always remember visiting the Belles Family near Fraley's park in Waverly and climbing what we thought was a mountain out in back of the house. I remember hiking up and down the creek looking for crabs and fish. Great memories from many years ago! Always had fun with Ruthie!!!!!

From: Gil Durham (cousin)
I, too, have fond memories of visiting the Belles' in Waverley and hiking up that "mountain" behind their house. One time Ruthie and I encountered an equally startled deer in a small cornfield.
I was always impressed with Ruthie's Dad, Harry who was a Marine in the Pacific during WWII. Big booming voice to go along with his big personality. Our sincere condolences to the Williams family.
Gil and Tommye Anne Durham

To the Belles girls that I grew up with I am so very sorry for the loss of your sister.  Dusty was such a beautiful and caring soul there is certainly a special place in heaven for her.  Keep your memories close.  Sending much love and many hugs and prayers your way.

From: Alan Secor
So sorry to hear of Dusty's passing. Too bad we didn't keep more in touch during our adult lives. Maybe we can get together sometime in the future. Please accept my sincere condolences.
