In Loving Memory of...
Dustin Michael Schwendeman
May 1, 1975 - January 22, 2002
Your memory has stood the test of time,
like a song with no reason or rhyme,
time has passed and years gone by,
since you were called to God on high.
Seven years has never seemed so small,
almost as if no time has gone by at all,
change has touched everything since you've been gone,
though some things remain untouched no matter how long.
I could never have imagined this day,
unable to conceive of a life with you gone that way,
Now, here we remain, trying to reform our lives,
working to remember the good memories of while you were still alive.
I never thought it would last this long,
keeping your memories right where they now belong,
the thought of you crossing my mind for 365 days for 7 years,
sometimes bringing laughter and smiles and sometimes tears.
I made a promise to you when you left,
because as firefighters we never forget the best,
to love and remember you from that moment on,
a promise which will last no matter how long you're gone.
Dusty was a young volunteer firefighter in southeastern Ohio. He was very devoted to his family, friends, fire department, and community. He served as the department's association President and was instrumental in helping the small department receive new equipment such as a new International engine.
Please help us to honor and remember Dusty Schwendeman for the sacrifices he made through out his life as he bravely and selflessly served his small community for so many years. . .
Save a Life . . .Make it Your Own! . . . Buckle Up!
